Whether you’re ready to see the changing leaves as you head down the road in Appleton, you want to drive past the picturesque snow banks, or you want to cruise along with the windows down near Green Bay, there are plenty of Wisconsin scenic drives you can take. Take a look some of our favorites for both on-road and off-road adventures.

Door County Coastal Byway

Door County is one of Wisconsin’s most famous getaway destinations. Whether you’re visiting from out of state or you want to enjoy the scenery near home, the Door County Coastal Byway is an official Wisconsin Scenic Byway that provides 66 miles of natural beauty, This scenic drive starts just north of Sturgeon Bay and travels along the Door Peninsula on Highways 57 and 42. Not only do you get scenic views, but Door County also offers plenty of restaurants, shops, and places to sleep as well.

Kettle Moraine Scenic Drive

Kettle Moraine Scenic Drive is a 115-mile route that runs through six Wisconsin counties and offers 50,000 acres of gorgeous nature to explore. It runs from Sheboygan County to Walworth County. Along the way are plenty of forests where you can take in the views of the foliage as well as hike, bike, fish, swim, or set up camp.

Lake Geneva Rustic Roads

Lake Geneva is another popular Wisconsin destination, and there are three rustic roads — R-11, R-12, and R-36 — in the area that provide about 20 miles about scenic driving. At the northeast part of the city, you’ll find the Lyons State Wildlife Area and old architecture. You can also drive through wooded areas that feature maple, hickory, and oak trees. Not only do you get to enjoy one of our favorite Wisconsin scenic drives, but you can also plan a stay in Lake Geneva, which offers quaint shops, plenty of accommodations, a variety of golf courses, and, of course, views of the lake.
