Two Rivers, WI

Two Rivers, WI Travel Guide!

Wisconsin finally got the memo that it is spring so Ian and celebrated with a road trip to Two Rivers. We started off the day by taking a tour at the Hamilton Wood Type and Printing Museum. The graphic design nerd in me totally geeked out! I discovered they host letterpress workshops and I’m tempted to drag Ian along to one this summer!

After our tour I was craving something to eat so we ordered subs, pulled a blanket out of our car, and had a mini picnic overlooking Lake Michigan. There is a beautiful bike path that wraps around the lake so it’s easy to walk to a spot with a great view!

Our Two Rivers day trip ended with a hike at Point Beach Forest State Forest. It was our first visit to the park and we loved strolling along the beach, snapping shots of the lighthouse, and hiking in the woods. Ian’s convinced we need to plan a camping trip this summer so now we are on the hunt to buy a tent.

Afternoon in Algoma, WI

Day Trip to Algoma, Wisconsin!

Some days I just can’t shake off the desire to explore a new place. Ian and I are currently planning an out-of-state trip this year, but in the meantime, I needed to get in the car and drive! We are lucky to live in a state scattered with little towns brimming with unique cultures. On this particular day we chose to visit Algoma, WI!

Algoma is a small town nestled on the shore of Lake Michigan. I was drawn to this town for its gorgeous boardwalk, but more on that later! Ian and began our day with a tour of the von Stiehl Winery. For only $4 a piece, we were able to go behind the scenes of the winery and view the bottling line as well as the Rathskeller which dates back to the civil war!

After a complementary wine tasting, Ian and I walked two doors down to the Ahnnapee Brewery Tap Room. While he sampled a few brews, I snacked on a warm pretzel since I still have not acquired the taste of beer (much to Ian’s dismay!)

Once we settled our tab, we headed downtown to take a self-guided walking tour of the Walldog Wave murals. I had to treat Ian to a chai tea latte at Caffé Tlazo afterwards since his hands got so cold waiting for me to take a million photos of all the murals. #bloggerproblems

However, it was worth a few numb fingers since the walking tour led us to stumble upon a vintage gas station, retro advertisements, and adorable doorways (a photographer’s dream!)

We finished our day trip with a sunset stroll along the Crescent Beach Boardwalk. It was a clear day in Algoma and the view of the lake and the lighthouse was stunning. I’m looking forward to making another trip during the summer so we can take advantage of the beach!

Winter Hike

Winter Hike | Beauty and Blooms

I hope you all enjoyed the holidays with your families! In an effort to avoid cabin fever we bundled up and went on a hike! This is the same lake Ian and I took our engagement photos, but it has transformed into a winter wonderland. The lake is starting to freeze over and the trees are frosted in snow. We cherished the fact that it was 40˙ out and we were able to enjoy the views without shivering from the cold. It may be awhile before we get another gorgeous day like this!
