Discover Wisconsin, the state’s leading media brand and tourism TV show, will be shining the spotlight on Southeastern Wisconsin in an upcoming episode. “Bike Nights and Fall Sights in Southeastern Wisconsin” airs Saturday, October 6 at 10 a.m. on Fox Sports Wisconsin and Sunday, October 7 at 10 a.m. on WITI TV 6. The episode is also available for online streaming at discoverwisconsin.com.
“When it comes to travel, I think it’s all about the journey. Motorcycling is an amazing way to see and feel the beauty of Wisconsin and I think southeastern Wisconsin is a wonderful spot to start or end a motorcycling trip,” said Discover Wisconsin host Mariah Haberman. “We’re thrilled to feature Burlington, Hartford and the Harley-Davidson Museum as Discover Wisconsin choice destinations!”
The show kicks off in Milwaukee at the Harley-Davidson Museum. Haberman tours the museum, including MOTOR Bar & Restaurant, located on its 20-acre, park-like campus. Haberman is also drawn to the diverse array of exhibits within the museum, such as the Hollywood exhibit, featuring motorcycles that were used in blockbuster films. Haberman interviews Bill Davidson, great-grandson of Harley-Davidson Motor Co. co-founder, William A. Davidson, before Haberman and Davidson head out on motorcycles to Holy Hill.
The crew’s next motorcycling destination is Hartford, where Haberman checks out The Mineshaft, Wisconsin’s largest restaurant and a popular destination for locals and bikers alike. While in Hartford, Haberman meets up with the local Hartford H.O.G. chapter outside of Pike Lake State Park for some gorgeous views of Pike Lake and fall foliage. The stop in Hartford isn’t complete without a trip to Mickey’s Frozen Custard for bike night.
Next up is a visit to Scoop DeVille, a nostalgic ice cream and candy shop and popular biker destination on Hartford’s main drag. The crew makes a stop at Erin Inn for a true local experience, before Haberman takes a solo ride throughout the area. Also featured is Westphal Mansion Inn, a unique bed & breakfast full of character and history.
Last on the tour of Southeastern Wisconsin is Burlington, a city known for its chocolate and a perfect motorcycling destination during all seasons. Haberman stops in at Aeppeltreow Winery for some wine and cider samples before stopping at John’s Main Event, a local establishment known for its chicken sandwich. For dessert, the crew stops at another iconic Burlington spot, Adrian’s Frozen Custard, which hosted its first ever bike night.
