Wisconsin’s Best Weekend Getaway2020-08-24T17:51:38+00:00

Fall in Love with Wisconsin

This is by far my favorite time of year – the colors, the cool sweatshirt and scarf weather, the pumpkin spice everything! Am I right? This time of year is made even better when spent in our sweet, little town of Baraboo. What do you want in a weekend getaway? Spa day or hiking? Wineries or shopping? The best Wisconsin Fall Day Trip is the Baraboo Area, it has it all!

Spa Day Staycation

The best way to enjoy a Wisconsin weekend getaway is to take it slow and relax by going to the spa. Here at Spa Serenity we have multiple services that would put you into a total state of relaxation. I would recommend our Warm Buttered Stone massages. With our buttered stone massages we use whipped shea butter and warm stones to melt your cares away. Pair one of our massages with our Ultimate Relaxation Facial and I promise that you will feel pure bliss and be ready to take on anything that this holiday season might throw your way. If you and your sweetheart are looking for some relaxing time to reconnect, book yourself a Couples Massage.

If you’re visiting Baraboo, or perhaps you’re lucky enough to call it home, do yourself a favor and swing through Devil’s Lake State Park this time of year to catch all of the beautiful colors that accompany Autumn in Wisconsin. Whether you just take a scenic drive around the lake, or you spend a day hiking, you really can’t go wrong. This needs to be at the top of your weekend getaway activities list.

Pro tip: Walk the Tumbled Rock Trail it offers great views of the lake while walking through a mix of fallen boulders and pine forests. It’s an easy trail and mostly paved, great for photo ops.

Don’t forget the tastes of the seasons! When you’re heading out of the South Shore of Devil’s Lake hang a Left on Ski Hi Road and head up the hill for scrumptious apple cider donut, washed down of course with apple cider! At the top of the bluff, you’ll really get a great view of the colorful treetops. After picking up a bag or two of apples, head back into town and check out the downtown for Baraboo’s Sunday Market. 


Grape growing in Wisconsin dates back to the 1800’s, thus our Midwest soil and microclimates capture the best ‘cold-hardy’ flavors. The Baraboo Bluff Winery wants their guests to feel at home.  They encourage picnics, longs strolls through the vines, and time shared with family and friends.  They are also pet friendly! Best of all, wine tastings available daily!

ringling circus tours

Take a tour of the Circus Worlds Museum. The Ringling Brother’s rich circus history runs deep within Baraboo. What began with less than an acre of land, six old circus wagons plus a lot of grit, determination, and passion, has now become an internationally recognized and respected institution encompassing 64 acres, 30 permanent structures, seven winter quarters buildings along Water Street, plus the Ringling Bros. Circus Train shed complex, and over 260 spectacular wagons. Circus World truly is “Wisconsin’s National Treasure! Make this part of your weekend getaway!

Cocktails in Baraboo

Treat yourself to a nice relaxing dinner and drinks at either The Driftless Glen Distillery or Tumbled Rock Brewery & Kitchen. They both offer great homemade food from burgers and sandwiches to seafood or pasta. Or sip on a hand-crafted drink, mixed cocktail or martini from either of these establishments.

Explore Tumbled Rock’s outdoor patio for cocktails around intimate campfires and live music. Order the hot salty pretzel appetizer you wont be disappointed! Best local hangout and a must see on your Wisconsin getaway.
