Don't Miss These City Spots Sponsored by WisTravel
Running right through the center of Cambridge, beautiful Koskonong Creek remains popular with canoeists. In the winter it is a favorite of cross country skiers who follow its path through the Cam-Rock system. Lake Ripley is a spring-fed gem of a lake that has long been a lure for city weary souls. Its crown jewel is Ripley Park, a quiet comfortable area of open land nestled on the west shoreline. Owned by Cambridge Foundation, the beach is open to the public, has a fine swimming area and all sorts of recreational and picnicking equipment.
If you enjoy off-road bicycling, visit Glacial Drumlin State Bike Trail or enjoy the many peaceful country roads. Developed in 1986, the Glacial Drumlin State Trail
is one of Wisconsin’s best bike trails. Starting near Cottage Grove, the trail goes east for 52 miles where it ends in the Fox River Sanctuary in Waukesha. For the dedicated cyclists…hit the mountain biking trails at Cam Rock County Park which has a 3.5 mile loop. The park also offers hiking and picnicking.
Sitting on the bleachers and watching the turn of the pottery wheel is one of the delights at the Cambridge Pottery Festival, and the annual U.S. Pottery Games are a large part of the CPF. In timed events, these games challenge the professional potter in skilled competitions. Cambridge features a Victorian-style main street that gives you the sensation of walking into a Norman Rockwell painting! Historic buildings hold a wide variety of shoppes and boutiques that offer antiques, salt-glazed pottery, and unusual art…much created by local artisans.
