Baraboo is situated on the Baraboo River just North of Madison. It is the largest city in and the county seat of Sauk County, Wisconsin. Baraboo bills itself as a family-oriented community with an excellent school system and a decent number of businesses in a city that still holds onto that small town charm.
It's often the smaller towns that hold some of the most unusual things to do when visiting, and Baraboo, Wisconsin, is no different. Baraboo is home to the Circus World Museum, a large circus museum with summer performances. There is also the International Crane Foundation. This unusual zoo is the only place in the world where you can see all fifteen species of crane.
There are at least two other museums to check out while visiting; the Flyways Waterfowl Museum, devoted to everything there is to know about ducks and the International Clown Hall of Fame (unless you have a fear of clowns, that is...) The museum is devoted to recognizing all of the outstanding clowns of history.
Meanwhile, for a spot of relaxing, Devil Lake State Park is the largest park in Wisconsin. It offers a whole menu of outdoor activities including kayak tours, Big Foot hikes, spotting bats, nature art, and photography. While there, sample locally distilled spirits or grab lunch or dinner at the Driftless Den.
For a further nature fix, Mirror Lake State Park is just three miles southwest of Wisconsin Dells and covers over 2000 acres. Beautiful Sandstone bluffs surround half of the lake and you can go fishing, swimming kayaking, canoeing and birdwatching. You’ll also enjoy wooded campsites, picnic areas, a boat landing, and miles of biking, hiking, and cross-country ski trails if you're visiting during the winter months.
Baraboo is home to quite a few Inns, Hotels and Bed & Breakfasts. There are also log cabin options that can serve as your vacation rental while staying in this quaint town.
