This past summer the family decided on a quick day trip from our Chicago suburban home to something fun and educational north of the Illinois border. We focused our sights on Cave of the Mounds in southwestern Wisconsin. Cave of the Mounds is located about twenty minutes west of Madison just off U.S. Highway 18 or 151 in Blue Mounds, Wisconsin. We enjoyed the two hour road trip as we took more of a rural back road route exploring the hilly countryside driving past cheese shops and microbreweries in Green and Dane counties.

Perhaps the oldest attraction St. Augustine has to offer is the Castillo De San Marcos, which is operated by the National Park Service. This coquina fort was built in 1672 – 1695 and offers visitors a spectacular view of former sea routes once traveled by Spanish and British soldiers. Another fort, Ft. Matanzas, is located fourteen miles south of St. Augustine. This historic site is also operated by the National Park Service and is only accessible by ferry.
