Spared the leveling effects of the great glaciers that ground the rest of the state into gentler, rolling hills, here the ridges run high and the valleys deep. Bordered on the west by the Mississippi River, this was the first part of the Wisconsin Territory to be populated by Europeans. As you take in the startling natural beauty along the Great River Road, explore the chain of charming towns along the river that echo this rich heritage.
