Gaze at scenic views while you take your sweetheart on a horseback ride through the forest at Kickapoo Valley Reserve. It’s one of the most beautiful destinations in the Midwest! Experience Wisconsin in the most authentic way possible and let the horses take you to breathtaking places.

Another great way to see Wisconsin in a romantic and exciting way is to go kayaking down the Mississippi River. Feel the light breeze on your skin as you glide on the dark water. Smell the pines around you and relax to the sound of birds chirping. These ideal morning activities will set the tone for your romantic weekend.
