Ways to Warm Up in Wisconsin

It’s hard not to hibernate in chilly weather, but Wisconsin has plenty of places where you can get out and stay warm. These Wisconsin hot spots will keep you toasty and entertained in the winter days to come.

New Glarus Hotel – New Glarus, WI

If there’s one thing Wisconsin does right, it’s cheese, and it doesn’t get much better than Swiss fondue. Go beyond dipping food into melted cheese and learn the history of fondue at the New Glarus Hotel. Groups of ten or more can see a live demonstration from these chefs who abide by Swiss traditions in the making of their fondues and learn all the tricks of the trade.

Pickerman’s – La Crosse, WI

Soup can be a hearty and healthy way to warm up, and Pickerman’s is the perfect place to get it. Locally owned since 2002, they have a variety of heart-healthy and low-calorie soups and sandwiches on the menu. Just pick from their “500 Club” and you’ll be getting a menu item under 500 calories. Looking for something a little more indulgent? Pickerman’s also has soups like Broccoli Cheddar and Potato Cream Cheese. Yum!

The County Clare – Milwaukee, WI

Whether it’s for dinner and drinks or an overnight stay, the County Clare in Milwaukee is a cozy spot for those months when you need to get out of the house. Huddle up by the fireplace with some Irish food and a Guinness, and enjoy your hibernation a little bit more. On top of an authentic Irish dinner menu, County Clare also serves brunch, has live music several nights a week and has Irish movie nights. Plenty of events to keep you busy and cozy.

Gail Ambrosius Chocolatier – Madison, WI

Sometimes it’s nice to stay in, and for those days, make sure to have some hot chocolate from Gail Ambrosius on hand. Pick up some handmade chocolates while you’re at it, made fresh in their Madison store. You can buy Gail Ambrosius products at several shops around the Madison area or online.
