Wisconsin Vacay Part II

Wednesday, April 8, 2015

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Groupon Getaways for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

So where were we? Oh yes, day two in Green Lake, Wisconsin. You didn't think I was just going to leave you high and dry and not finish telling you about this mini Groupon Getaways trip, did you? We've still got a lot to cover.

Things to do in Green Lake, Wisconsin (during March.) From what I've gathered this place gets pretty hopping in the summer. 

1. Go antiquing.

After a day of antiquing in Green Lake we finished another gallery wall. What do you think? Too many antlers? No such thing. I had no idea this part of Wisconsin was such an antique shop hot spot. But it was! And we had a great time picking out all the fun "eclectic" stuff. Ask me how we like it six months from now...

2. Drink Spotted Cow while admiring a large frozen lake.

I'm not sure why I found this frozen lake full of ice fisherman so fascinating, but I did. Our room had a great lakeside view so it was nice to look out and imagine how pretty it must be in the summer. And an early spring view wasn't half bad either.

3. Explore Amish country.

I know "Amish Mafia" is a terrible show but I can't help but love it. I also loved "Growing Up Amish" and "Teen Amish Mom" as well. So seeing the Amish firsthand in Wisconsin driving down the street in their horse and buggy was more exciting for me than it should be.

4. Go to a canvas painting class. Chris painted, I drank wine.

I typically hate anything related to painting/crafting/drawing ext because I am a terrible artist. But this class was really fun- that might have had something to do with the wine part. Now we just have to figure out where to hang our matching "wintery night" drawings in the house...

4. And eat more cheese covered food.

Believe it or not, there's a bowl of chili hiding under that mound of cheese. And mountain of sour cream. Eek. A fan of sour cream I am not. I immediately scooped that to the side.

And because of this heavy cheese and beer weekend in Wisconsin, I am still trying to eat salads and drink kale smoothies all week... Gotta shed that Wisco weight before summer.

All in all, we had a really great weekend in Green Lake, Wisconsin. It's an area we never would visited had it not been for Groupon Getaways. It makes me want to check out more of the fun vacation spots they have listed in areas around the Midwest.

  1. LOL our food is such a problem. Try actually living here and working to get in shape for swimsuit season...not a fun combo. ;) I have a weirdly unhealthy obsession with Amish TV shows, so no shame. :)

  2. You scooped away the sour cream?!

    Looks fun all the same. Minus your whole embarrassing sour cream thing..

  3. You must, must, MUST eat cheese covered food & drink beer when you venture to Sconnie or we kick you out. Tee hee! :)
