Traveling Ted is a blog that takes readers along on my adventures hiking, canoeing, skiing, and international backpacking. Many blogs focus on one aspect of backpacking, but I tackle both the outdoor adventure side and international exploration as well.

Sharing is caring!

Wisconsin is home to cheesy tourist attractions

Wisconsin is the king of cheesy tourist attractions. Known as America’s dairy land, Wisconsin is famous for its cheese production and also cheesy tourist attractions. One item everyone attributes to Wisconsin is the cheese head foam hats made famous by Green Bay Packer fans.

You do not have to drive far in Wisconsin to find some type of memento for cheese. Of course everyone knows that mice love cheese, so it is no surprise to find its most adoring fan wherever a block of cheese is displayed.

The first pictures comes from the Black River Falls exit off of I-94 in the town of Black River Falls, Wisconsin. This exit is more famous for another cheesy tourist attraction, the orange moose.

Orange moose in Black River Falls is also a cheesy tourist attraction

The second pictures comes from the town of Fennimore, Wisconsin. I was going for an evening drive up the Kickapoo River Valley into the Driftless Region coming out of Boscobel, Wisconsin. Unfortunately, I drove south instead of north and soon found myself in Fennimore. All was not lost. I captured this cheesy tourist attraction photo.

This post is part of the Travel Photo Roulette. The rules are simple. The hosting blogger is the chosen winner of the previous round. The new host chooses a theme for the next round and bloggers can submit a single entry based on how they interpret the theme. The time frame for submissions is one week. At the end of the week, the host blogger chooses the winner for that round and said winner repeats the process on their own blog. Readers can always try and sway the host via comments during the contest, but the host is free to give as little or as much weight to people’s opinions as they wish.

Last week’s winner was Gypsy Nester who chose cheesy tourist attractions as the theme for the competition this week. Thank you for giving me a reason to post these cheesy photos.
