A little winter travel
One small town in Wisconsin seems to be world renown for a couple of reasons. New Glarus is a very Swiss village in an upper Midwestern setting. The architecture, restaurants, shops and parks all reflect a Swiss character. Apparently even the language has a hint of a Swiss accent, although didn't talk with enough people to confirm that. Everyone I spoke with sounded like they live in Wisconsin. The other aspect the town is famous for is their small brewery, which has been turning out award winning beers for a few decades. They offer a self-guided tour of their manufacturing facility, a tasting room to check out their products, and an open-air beer garden that I'm sure stays full and busy when the weather is warmer.
There were painted cows all over town, reflecting the influence of different businesses and artists. Dairy is also an important part of the region, mainly for its contribution to award winning cheeses.
Here are some quick images of our short visit there.
