oldworldwisconsin.wisconsinhistory.org/ This is a great spot for living history on 800+acres. …wisconsinhistory.org/Visit/AdmissionsHours.…

Delafield aka "Lang" town is a great stop as well. This might even be a nice stopover point for you, close but not in Mukwonago.

Check out Milwaukee. Depending on your interest there's a lot to do in the area. One recommend is The Domes a unique feature to Milwaukee:


If you like Country magazine or any of its offshoots come visit Reiman Publications Visitors Center in Greendale:


If you head this way some other fun things www.kopps.com on 76th and Layton for great custard and burgers and Organ Piper Pizza for a unusual setting:


If you wanted to branch out further or do a day trip check out Madison, they have a lot to offer/consider as well.


nearby Elkhorn may be a good stop:



http://www.lakegenevawi.com/ Lake Geneva is a good area to visit that would be a worthwhile stop.

There's a Civil War Museum in Kenosha http://www.kenosha.org/civilwar/index.html


Spinning Top and Yo-Yo Museum:


Chocolate Museum:


Logic Puzzle Museum:

thanks for thorough post. we will be coming up from the south so may check out eagle if we get there in time. farm closes at 3pm. could just drive on to delafield and find a nice motel; check out shops that are open and dine. will head to mukwonago in the morning to visit dog breeder and then on south to rogers park, illinois. thanks for tips. have done milwauke with family a few years ago and had a nice time. never saw so many bars in my life. richard in des moines.

The Elegant Farmer is located in Mukwonago. It is an enclosed farm stand with wonderful herbs, produce, cheeses, meats and baked goods. A couple of years ago its apple pie backed in a paper bag was featured on one of the food network shows...can't recall the name. It is worth a trip there. AND, if you go to East Troy, which is one town over, there is an old-time trolley museum. You can actually park and take the trolley to the Elegant Farmer, shop and ride back to East Troy. A fun thing to do! You have a long ride to Rogers Park from Mukwonago. I have a daughter at Loyola U. and there is no quick way to get there.
