The Beautiful Minocqua Home of the Chain of Lakes

Northern Wisconsin is a great weekend getaway the warmest 6 months of the year. Similar to northern Minnesota there are many lake houses and delicious places to eat. The beautiful Minocqua home of the chain of lakes is unique with its many quirky and odd sculptures around town.

We had a quick 36 hours in Minocqua also known as the Island City, but we sure made the most of it. Ideally, it deserves a long weekend from the Twin Cities. Other must see places in Wisconsin include Viroqua, Door County, Sparta, and Lacrosse.

The Worlds Largest Penny

The worlds largest penny is just the city over in Woodruff, Wisconsin. This was incredibly fun to see a penny this big and of course we needed a picture with it. Especially with Damion’s tattoo.

Wizard of Oz Pigs

You better believe we pulled over for this little pigs dressed up in front of Hallman Lindsay Paints. This store is located on 1288 Summit Avenue Oconomowoc, WI 53066.
