Backroads and Byways of Wisconsin

An off-the-beaten-path road-trip guide to Wisconsin

Wisconsin is so much more than Wisconsin Dells, Milwaukee, Green Bay and Madison. And as much as we love those places, we can’t ignore the goldmine of the lesser traveled roads and secret sweet spots the Badger State has to offer.

These twelve chapters outline twelve road trips through some of the often overlooked backroads of Wisconsin. Each chapter goes into detail of the sights along the way, places to eat and stay, curious shops,
museums, parks, rustic roads and roadside attractions. All with a bit of history here and there. The routes were chosen with the scenery in mind. So whether you choose to just roll on through the route in a couple of hours or linger along the way to make a long weekend trip, this book will have plenty of what you’re looking for.

Interview with the Author

From the Chicago Tribune: “For those who plan to stay close to home this summer, this handy guide describes 12 excursions to Wisconsin’s lesser-known charms. Yes, cheese factories and breweries are here, but so are descriptions of mining towns with a rich local history, such as Mineral Point, with its restored small cottages originally built in the 19th Century by Cornish immigrant miners. And where else but Mineral Point can one sample both a Cornish pasty and a figgyhobbin? No, says author Kevin Revolinski, they are not characters from the “Lord of the Rings” film trilogy but rather, respectively, a meat filling with potatoes and onions wrapped in a crust pastry, and a sweet pastry rolled with cinnamon, brown sugar, raisins and nuts smothered with caramel and whipped cream or ice cream. Revolinski’s Wisconsin also includes nods to a circus museum, local wineries, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin estate, kettle moraines, freshwater fishing in lumberjack country and fish boils in the heart of Door County.”
