Marshfield Wisconsin Overnight

Posted Saturday, March 1st, 2008 12:06 pm GMT -6 in Family, Food, Travel

The whole family spent the night in Marshfield, Wisconsin, Thursday evening. Colleen had meetings at the Marshfield Clinic, so the girls and I spent time in the Holiday Inn swimming pool (just like last fall).

We tried two new restaurants (Scotty’s Pizza and Central Waters Brew House) and one old one (Crabby Dave’s). Didn’t care much for Scotty’s; the service at the Brew House was suspect and the place had a strong beer-making smell (but had good food). I’ll always love Crabby Dave’s just on name alone.

We got out and explored a little more this time. The Wildwood Park & Zoo was closed, but they have a unique road that goes around the outside of most of the large animal pens. You could even park and walk right up to some of the animals (including a cool albino deer). At the entrance to zoo, is a restored 2442 Soo Line engine that made for a good picture.

Over at the fairgrounds, they have the World’s Largest Round Barn. And oh how I wish this place was open in the winter. Maybe next time…
