Things To Do

In Arena, Mazomanie, and Spring Green, Wisconsin, visitors can immerse themselves in a charming blend of natural beauty and cultural experiences. In Arena, outdoor enthusiasts can explore the stunning countryside through hiking, snowshoeing, and fishing, in areas like the Lower Wisconsin State Riverway. Visitors can also enjoy recreational activities such as kayaking along the Wisconsin River or biking along scenic trails.


Mazomanie offers a very small historic downtown with great new businesses. Our favorites are the Old Feed Mill restaurant for Thursday – Saturday dinner and Sunday brunch; Wall Street Gallery & Bistro for Thursday – Saturday dinner; the new 1855 Coffee House for breakfast and lunch, Wednesday – Sunday; Apothecary & Mercantile’s old fashioned ice cream parlor; and new business, Hedge Meadow herbalist on weekends for custom blended teas and beautifully simple gifts. Carr Valley Cheese on the main drag is worth a stop and also carries Chocolate Shoppe ice cream!

Spring Green

Spring Green, famously known as the home of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin, beckons architecture enthusiasts to tour the iconic estate and immerse themselves in the architect’s visionary designs. Additionally, the notoriously artsy town hosts the American Players Theatre, offering world-class performances amidst the picturesque backdrop of the Wisconsin countryside. You can golf two courses in Spring Green, one designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr. Our favorite places to eat are Reunion Restaurant for sustainable and delicious dinners Thursday – Saturday; Wander Provisions for locally sourced picnic food and groceries, including the Frozen Local for home-made ice cream, and the beloved General Store for lunch and gifts. Stops at Arcadia Books and Convivio for tableware, wine, coffee bar, and cocktails in the stone cellar are a must do!

Each of these towns offers a unique slice of Wisconsin’s charm, inviting visitors to explore and discover the treasures nestled within their borders.
