My Favorite Wisconsin Travel Destination...

I love traveling around Wisconsin to find new, exciting and beautiful places.  My favorite parts of the state are ‘up north’--the Northwoods and Door County.

My very favorite place to visit is Washington Island.  


When I first visited, I was so surprised at how beautiful it was! I kept saying, I can’t believe this is Wisconsin!

I have been lucky enough to travel there yearly since 2003, when my husband and I first started dating.  His step dad plays viola for the Washington Island Music Fest each year and we tend to tag along :)

The music fest is awesome--the musicians are incredible and come from all over the country to be a part of it.  This past year, we got to watch the children’s concert, which my son loved. He ended up clapping and cheering at the top of his lungs during the 4 seconds of quiet!  Hehe & whoops.

If you have never been to Washington Island, I HIGHLY recommend it.  

It has now become one of my favorite places (a very close second behind Oahu!) to visit and probably the number one place I daydream about when I am wishing for a vacation!  

My favorite parts of the island are Schoolhouse beach--or “rock beach” as we have nicknamed it in our house now--, the lavender shops and the Albatross burger & ice cream stand (because, ice cream)!  The water is so crystal clear and beautiful to swim in

Here are a few photos from our trip to the island this past summer.  I hope you all get a chance to travel there and experience how relaxing it is one day!
