15 Autumn Adventures Autumn is a time when the air is crisp, colors are brilliant and the lake is still warm. Enjoy the Bounty – Elkhart Lake Style! The area offers a wide variety of fall recreational activities and day trip opportunities. A decrease in lake activity after Labor Day offers a haven for silent sport enthusiasts with superb paddling and fishing. Personal guide services are available to the public. An 80′ observation tower at the Sheboygan County Marsh Park offers a spectacular view of the colorful forest. Watch the wildlife in its natural habitat. The Ice Age Trails and Kettle Moraine State Park provide some of the best hiking trails in Wisconsin. Bicycle rental options are available for the entire family. You'll be in for a real treat when you visit Henschel's Indian Museum & Trout Farm. The view alone is worth the trip! Another popular adventure is a trip to Henning's Cheese Company where you can watch cheese being made through viewing windows that overlook the factory. Enjoy sampling cheese, wine and ice cream. Wade House in nearby Greenbush packs the fall season with special events such as its Autumn Celebration. For total relaxation, spend the day pampering yourself at our full-service spa, Aspira.
