Southern Wisconsin Cheese and Beer tour-help with itinerary

Jump to last reply

We are planning a road trip from Illinois around the southern part of Wisconsin to visit some breweries and cheese factories/makers. We will have about 5 days, leaving on a Wednesday and returning home on Sunday.

The plan as it looks now will be:

- home to Milwaukee (about 220 miles)

- Johnson Creek (about 45 miles from Milwaukee)

- Madison (about 35 miles from Johnson Creek)

- New Glarus (about 27 miles from Madison)

- Monroe (about 17 miles from New Glarus)

- Mt Horeb (about 35 miles from Monroe)

- Galena (IL) (drive home via Galena, spend couple of hours - total 215 miles to home)

Can you guys help us out with suggestions how and where to spend our 4 available nights? Probably spend 1 night in Milwaukee and 1 night in Madison? But where would you suggest to spend the other nights? And if not Milwaukee and/or Madison, can you propose a better alternative?

Thanks a lot!
