New Glarus, WI – America’s Little Switzerland

Good morning!

I am on a mission to visit as many European inspired or European style towns America has to offer. New Glarus, WI was on of them.

This unique town is about 3 hours from Chicago and while it may seem like a long drive, it goes by quickly. My husband and I enjoy driving so for us the drive was peaceful and a great experience overall.

But if you feel extra adventurous, you can be in Madison, WI in an additional 30 minutes! Make it a fun weekend trip.

Take your date to the next level – Vol II

Escape rooms have been all the rage lately. My social media is filled with tags and photos of family and friends enjoying this new craze. So Alen and I had to jump at the chance to explore one on our own.

Escape Strategy in Aurora, IL.

Nothing says date night like being locked in a room with your significant other for 60 minutes. Right?! If you can survive this, you can survive anything hahaha. But really this was an enormous amount of fun and it makes you want to go back again and again.
