Wisconsin Activities: It’s All About Dads

Posted on Jun 15, 2015

Posted in: Wisconsin Activities

When June hits, another Wisconsin summer has officially begun. No, I’m not talking about the endless construction or the copious amounts of cheese curds and beer we will consume, but rather the fun and festivities that are to come.

From Cheese Fest to Mile of Music, the Dairy State has something to offer for everyone. Check out our blog every Monday to find out what’s going on in the Appleton area and all over Wisconsin. In honor of Father’s Day coming up on Sunday, this week is dedicated to all the fun things we can do with and for dad.

Kohler Golf Course: Kohler, WI

    Price: $190-385 (depending on course)

    When?: Anytime

What dad doesn’t like  golfing? Although the courses  in Appleton are always a  good choice, my dad’s personal  favorite is found in Kohler, WI. The  hour drive to Kohler is  well  worth  it as you will not be disappointed by  the beautiful and dynamic courses  Kohler has to offer. Whether you are  a beginner or expert, each of its four courses will have something for everyone. Oh, and did I mention it’s home of the 2015 PGA  Championships?

 If you don’t find golf as exciting as it looks, stop over at the Kohler Design Center while dad stays busy. It has a showroom of products, history behind of the Kohler company and the notorious wall of  toilets that I highly recommend seeing.

  Price: FREE for dads on Father’s Day,  $12 for general admission: ages 2-92

 When?: Sunday June 21st 10am-3pm

If you have young children then Mulberry lane Farm is the perfect  place to take the family on Father’s Day. Experience milking cows,  riding ponies and learning  about animals. What’s better than  spending a day at a farm with the ones you love? After all, this is  Wisconsin.

When? June 20th 5pm

Country and summer are a combination that were just meant to be together. With the warm summer weather and Lambeau practically in our backyard, what’s a better present for dad? Even if he’s not the biggest country fan, tell him it’s good family bonding- dads are suckers for that.



 The Fire: Downtown Appleton 

     Price: Ranges depending on items

     When: Tues-Friday 11am-8pm; Saturday 10am-8pm; Sunday 12pm-6pm

I can’t even express how much I love The Fire. Even if you lack creativity, like myself,  you are sure to find The Fire to be  fun and easy. With mosaic, pottery and glass  working, it’s a great place for everyone and anyone. The Fire is a great  place to take  your kids and siblings and make something special for your favorite man.



-I would like to make a shout out to all the wonderful men in my life- both my grandpas, my dad and my step-dad. An extra special shout out to my dad for helping me move in/out of three different houses, telling horrible jokes and always buying me the same shirt in different colors- thanks for all you do!-
