Yummies From New London

Sara Lee NL 05

Came across these pictures from at least two years ago when I drove through New London at dusk.  I had no idea Sara Lee and Hillshire Farms had such a big pressence in Wisconsin.  But it makes perfect sense since making great food is second nature to us.  Got a pile of brand new photos … Continue reading

Military Pride In Appleton

Appleton Legion 02

These were taken a while back (I can tell from the camera used).  You see these types of military displays and tributes all around Wisconsin, as it should be. * * * * * *

Wisconsin Cheese Cow Lexxy’s Day Trip To Ashland

Lexxy ASHLAND 05

My travel sidekick Lexxy (the blow up cow to promote Wisconsin Cheese), always seemed to get the best view of everything.  Ok, just having a little fun with her.  Ashland was definitely my kind of town, and South Shore Brewing my kind of place to grab a great Wisconsin Beer.  Another neat thing are the … Continue reading

Travel Wisconsin “Airplane” Spoof Is A Fun One

TW Airplane Spoof

Check out the new Travel Wisconsin commercial, a fun tribute to the Airplane franchise brought to the world by theZucker Brothers, dear and proud Cheeseheads.  The Zucker brothers were born and raised in Shorewood, Wisconsin, and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar played for the Milwaukee Bucks, helping the Bucks win their only NBA championship. * * *   … Continue reading

Harley Davidson Despite The Winter Snow

Harley SNOW 04

I know, we gotta pack the Harley Davidson up every winter and leave it be in the garage.  But you can still stop by the Harley Davidson Museum in Milwaukee in the winter and get your fix.  Here’s a few cool shots from last year. * * *   * * *

The Hazelwood Historic House Museum In Green Bay

GB Oldest House 01

Known as the oldest home in Green Bay, the Hazelwood House, now an historical museum, has a pretty awesome view of the Fox River, though since I was there on an overcast day, the photos don’t do it justice.  It’s one of those neat little delights you can stumble upon, nestled away in a place … Continue reading

Wisconsin’s Very Own Freedom Tower, Well Sort Of

Freedom Water Tower

Freedom isn’t just a word, an ideology, or the name of a skyscraper in New York City, it’s also the name of a small town straight north of Appleton if you’re taking the back roads up to Green Bay.  It’s a fun little town to stop in on, and the local grocer (like every small … Continue reading

The Morgue Haunted House

MORGUE Oneida 05

I know it’s not Holloween, but stumbling upon some fun pictures while driving back roads near DePere, I came across an old school house renamed The Morgue, and took several photos of it.  Interestingly enough, there was also a church right next to it.  After finding the pictures, I looked up what it might be … Continue reading

Blacktop Back Road Beauty

Blacktop 01

Nothing much to say about these shots other than, damn Wisconsin can be beautiful to drive around.  Even the blacktop roads can be a thing of beauty.  Enjoy the summer travel views during this cold winter. * * * * * *

Fifield – Phonetically Funny

Fifield 01

Found these shots I took as I drove through the very tiny town of FiField and the name struck me as phonetically funny.  Of course Wisconsin is no stranger to odd sounding or hard to pronounce town names like Lac Du Flambeau (Yeah, we who love Lambeau Field understand that one, but to an outsider, … Continue reading

A Snow Covered Small Town

Impact 7 Building

Almena is a small town that you’ll miss if you blink off Highway 8 in Barron County.  One reason to keep your eyes open and pull over if traveling that way is the Almena Meat Company.  Try the double smoked beef snack sticks and, if you love smoked sausages, you’ll love these even more.  I … Continue reading

The Tripoli Shrine Center In Milwaukee

Tripoli Shrine FRONT

I took these shots on a snowy, gloomy day, so they don’t even come close to the dazzling nature of the Tripoli Shrine Center in Milwaukee.  Didn’t get a chance to go inside, which I hear is even more astounding, but will get around to that next time in Milwaukee. From the Tripoli Shrine Center … Continue reading

The Best Beer Beef Stick Ever

Brossman's Meats 02

While I’m feverishly editing my way towards the end of the documentary, I keep going through archives to find needed pictures, and every day I keep finding fun ones that had slipped my mind previously.  Here’s a great place in Racine, kind of hidden if you’re not looking for it, called Brossman’s Meats and they … Continue reading

A Cheese House With Cows Outside

Colonial Cheese 02

Happened to stop in, per my usual whenever I spot a cheese shop while traveling Wisconsin, and found the quant Colonial Cheese House in Wautoma.  Hard to miss what with the beautiful ceramic cows out front.  Of course what I really dug about the place, besides the cheese, was the Cheesehead memorabilia for sale, including … Continue reading

Benvenuto’s At The Holiday Inn Fon Du Lac

Two Martinis COLOR

Todd Winkler, CEO of the Wisco Hotel Group, discusses how they got involved with opening new Benvenuto’s Restaurants (a Wisconsin based chain of Italian restaurants) at their Madison Holiday Inn location, and now at the Fon Du Lac Holiday Inn location. (Note: Music (C) Kevin MacLeod – http://www.incompetech.com – a fellow Wisconsinite and hell of … Continue reading

Wildlife On The Fox River

Fox River GOOSE

These lovely birds didn’t even mind that I came up to them and started taking their photos.  Fact is, I was the intruder and they were cool with that.  FYI, this was on the Fox River in Appleton, down near the hydro-electric plant and railroad track  on the far side of Riverside drive. * * … Continue reading

Some Fun Shots Of Sheboygan

Food Fam Fun CU

Who knew Old Wisconsin, Piggly Wiggly, Sargento, Kohler, & about a zillion other great companies are headquartered in Sheyboygan.  Well anyone who lives there, I suppose, but there’s a lot of great manufacturing out of the sleepy coastal town (a couple of examples below).  We also had the great pleasure of interviewing the troup putting … Continue reading

Also recorded in this book are the regional … Continue reading
