Tips from locals
Great local museum with lots of excellent outdoor tours. The museum was paid for by famed Japanese art collector and local philanthropist Mary Griggs Burke.
Great spot for a rainy afternoon or a visit with kids to explore the natural history of the area
Great for the whole family. Exhibits change yearly so there is always something new to see. Be sure to check out their Raptors of the Northwoods presentation.
Carefully curated exhibit hall focused on local wildlife & habitats. Excellent educational programs & tours suitable for visitors of all ages. Gift shop well thought out with special items for remembering your vacation & bringing home a gift.

“The best burgers! Open and social bar and restaurant. Taps, cocktails, and late night frozen pizza if you missed the grill. Pool table, modern juke box, shake-a-day. Enclosed outdoorish smoking area. You have to try the ring skill game up front by the picture window. Simple concept, difficult to hook the ring, and super addicting. You’ll be saying, just a few more tries!”
