Things to do in BELOIT with kids

Wisconsin is not just known for it’s incredible artisan cheeses. This sweet north-central state has that little something special for everyone in the family - especially kids!

Zoos, water parks, festivals, museums, outdoor adventures and indoor fun - you will find it all in the birthplace of the Ice Cream Sundae (signs of a great state!)  Make friends with animals of all sizes, from the giants at Milwaukee County Zoo, to the smaller at Mulberry Lane Petting Farm.

Sports fans? Head on down to a ball game, or get behind the scenes with the Green Bay Packer Hall of Fame.

Museums range from the interactive Northwoods Children’s Museum, to the fun Circus World Museum. Transport, art and history museums are waiting too!  History more your thing? Wisconsin is filled with fascinating history. Step back in time with Old World Wisconsin exploring life in the 1800s, or delve into Native American history with Historic Point Basse. 

Did you know that Wisconsin was also the location of the country’s first kindergarten? See - they have been great for kids from the very beginning!
