Possibility Playground

Reviewed By Autodealer - Petersburg, Illinois

Beautiful well planed playground even has padded flooring to assure there are few scuffs and scrapes. Not just jungle gyms and swings but areas that look like ships and lighthouses for children to let their imagination go wild.There are even benches where parents can watch their kids.Entrances and exits are limited so kids can't run off. Other cities should copy this facility!

Lion's Den Gorge Nature Preserve

Reviewed By FXDWG05 - Wisconsin

Be ready for a nature walk adventure! It is nature and the mosquitos can get more than a little friendly when you get into the park. Several trail options lead you through a variety of trails that go from lake bluff to prairie grasses and back into wooded areas. There is even a wetland area with a small boardwalk leading out to a viewing deck in the wetlands. It must be a good place to visit because my children never want to leave until we have gone on just about every trail, which is amazing if you understand a couple of teenagers!

Riveredge Nature Center

Reviewed By alibarbaraMilwaukee - Milwaukee, Wisconsin

This is a great place to hike and enjoy the outdoors. The grounds are planted in native grasses which bloom profusely in late summer. You can see plenty of frogs in the pond. There's a forest area where they set up open climbs for tree climbing for all ages. This is a fun experience where you wear a harness and climb up a rope into the treetops where you can swing and hang upside down. My son had a great time trying this. The nature center has a sitting area full of natural artifacts and books related to the outdoors. You can even climb upstairs and read in the tree house. There's a great little gift shop.

Cedar Creek Winery

Reviewed By Pauline199001 - Milwaukee, Wisconsin

I have been going to this winery for years and they have the best wine. They offer wine tasting, up to four wines complementary, after that there is a cost. Their selection is very nice and the prices can’t be beat. They do offer a discount of 10% if you buy a case. The Cranberry Blush is one of my favorites. They also do tours, and the staff is very knowledgeable and very nice. The shop offers unique wine accessories.

Ozaukee County Pioneer Village

Restored village.

Reviewed By Dana M - Grafton, Wisconsin, United States

What a pleasant way to spend an afternoon! We took advantage of the
"free" Open House day at Pioneer Village with our kids and grandkids.
It was an enjoyable afternoon filled with demonstrations and activities for everyone.
I enjoyed "racing" my granddaughter in the Sack Race..........the kids loved the stations
set up for making a "period" craft and we all had ice cream at the Ice Cream Social afterwards.

Harrington Beach State Park

Reviewed By JESSICA S - Milwaukee, Wisconsin

I visited the Beach with 3 of my children ages 8-12. The beach was clean, everyone using the Beach was clean and friendly, and the staff was helpful upon arrival. The shoreline is very shallow for quite a way, so there was no fear of drowning. Fish swam beside the children and they enjoyed that. The sand was clean and they also enjoyed playing in the sand. There are bathrooms close to the beach/swim area and they were very clean.

Well done 1860 light house with a dedicated group that is preserving this site. Tours are thoughtfully given. The light station is not open year round so check the website. Save time to walk the grounds and if you are able absolutely climb to the top to see the light and view!

Kurtz Woods Natural Area

Reviewed By la_vdv - Hartford, Wisconsin

This place was difficult to find. Sources I looked at online directed me to a trailhead on Dahlia Lane, but we couldn't find it. We did find a trailhead sign way back between the backyards of two houses on Acacia Drive. There was an unkempt strip between the two yards which, upon closer inspection, turned out to be a little path leading to the actual trail. Looking online later, I noticed that Ozaukee Washington Land Trust has a trail map that indicates there is trail access on both Dahlia Lane and Acacia. Parking is on the road in a subdivision.

One thing that makes this state natural area notable is the "quality of the intact forest" that "characterized the pre-settlement era in Southeastern Wisconsin," according to the site "Treasures of Oz" about nature areas in Ozaukee County. So I guess if you want to see what Wisconsin woodlands looked like before European settlers came, this is a good place to do it. For this reason, preservation-minded folks would like to limit invasive non-native plants and such, so we hikers can minimize our own impact by using the shoe-brusher-offers before entering the trail. We found one near the sign, tho' it was a little hidden by weeds.

This was a tame and pleasant stroll. Not very rugged, and I don't think you could get lost in there. No bears. I think I would like to come again in early springtime for flowers, or at fall color time.

Ozaukee Interurban Trail

Reviewed By ajbukovitz - Appleton, Wisconsin

This is a great paved bike trail for every type of bike. We biked from Cedarburg to Belgium and back. It was just shy of 40 miles. The trail out of Cedarburg is busy and crosses a lot of roads. Our favorite part of the trail was from Knellsville to Belgium because there are few cross roads and the trail just winds along the edge of farm after farm.

Cedarburg Covered Bridge

Reviewed By NeverUnpacked - Westfield, Indiana

Recently made the detour out here again. Nice picturesque setting for a picnic if you want to get away from Cedarburg for a bit. Didn't realize this is the last covered bridge in the state. Not spectacular, but worth it if you're a covered bridge fan or just looking for a unique spot for a picnic.
