A Foodie and Fiber Tour of the Driftless Region
October 11 and 12, 2017
Untouched by glaciers, the Driftless Region is characterized by forested hillsides, river valleys, wetlands, grassland prairies, limestone river rock, wildflowers, and wildlife. It’s no wonder La Farge, Cashton, and Viroqua have attracted young entrepreneurs looking for a slow, civilized lifestyle and like-minded people. The Driftless Region has become Wisconsin’s fastest growing tourist destination for people looking to relax in Ben Logan’s The Land Remembers country, to shop directly for cheese and yarn, to admire artisans at unique art collectives and to dine at some of Wisconsin’s newest farm-to-table cafes. Alpacas, Muenster, and Maple Syrup will feature some of the area’s most attractive stops. Join your foodie friends and others for a fantastic evening in La Crosse’s The Charmant, a renovated candy factory and the city’s only boutique hotel, a meal on the La Crosse Queen, and two days in the Driftless Region of Southwestern Wisconsin. Also included: Lunch at The Driftless Café, demonstrations and shopping at B&E’s Trees, Hickory Wind Farms, Pasture Pride Cheese Factory, and Viroqua Public Market, and coach transportation from UW Waukesha.
