Travel with us to Baraboo which is located in the “Driftless Region” of the Upper Midwest. The city sits in the shadows of Tourists, but recently Midwest Traveler acknowledged their city as an up-and-coming town in America.
Since Baraboo is known for the circus we begin with a tour at the AL. Ringling Theatre, “America’s Prettiest Playhouse.” The tour will offer a complete mix of entertainment and education. We will also see paintings that pay homage to the “movie palace” heritage.
Afterwards, we tour the AL. Ringling Mansion which was home to the circus showman. See Ringling family furniture and artwork in this 18,000 sq. foot home. After our circus informative and architectural tours in the morning, we enjoy an included buffet lunch at Pizza Ranch.
Our final stop in Baraboo is at New Life Lavender and Cherry Farm, where you do not even have to hop on a ferry to breathe in this sweet aroma. Here we will see a video, take a wagon ride to the lavender fields, learn about sheep, bees, and see an herb garden. Join us for a time of relaxing, restoration and reconnecting.
Afterwards, time is allowed to purchase lavender items in their farm store before we enjoy an included piece of their homemade Lavender Cherry Pie. The ultimate goal is to make Sauk County the Lavender Capitol of Wisconsin. Come along for the ride and see why Baraboo stands out nationally.
