Where to Spend Family Time in Wisconsin

Finding things to do with your family can be tough, no matter what the situation. Whether you live in Wisconsin or you’re visiting for some family time, there’s always a good reason to look for something new to do here. Luckily there’s plenty of family friendly things to do in the Badger State, and this is just a short list of some of the many things you can do.

 

Go To An Orchard

Wisconsin produce is some of the most hearty produce in North America, thanks to its reliable water supply and the overall atmosphere of WI. The soil is fertile, there’s no shortage of natural fertilizer handy, and that means places like Kickapoo Orchard in west WI have amazing apples and apple trees. It’s open to the public, provided you meet with the owner first, and if you’re lucky your family might just get to pick off an apple straight from the tree. How’s that for knowing where your food comes from?

 

Lambeau Field


Considering the Super Bowl trophy is named after the man whose statue is in front of Lambeau Field, if you have any interest in football at all, this place is worth a visit. The crown jewel of Green Bay, perhaps all of Wisconsin, this steel and glass marvel has a well-heated inside mall, in case you’re tired of the cold, with loads to see. And if you’re really lucky, you’ll get to see or even take part in the local tradition of having the fans shovel the snow off the field.

 

Friday Fish Fry

If there is one thing Wisconsin residents take seriously, it’s Friday’s fish fry. It harkens back to an old Catholic practice of not eating “meat” on Fridays, which the settlers gladly adhered to thanks to the incredible supply of fish the area was blessed with. Now, it’s almost purely secular, and a great place to meet and eat almost anywhere you go. There are plenty of places to have fish at, but for a start you could always swing by the nearest VFW Post building. Just make sure to call before you go, because if you don’t reserve ahead, there’s a chance you might not get your fish.
