Family Friendly Attractions in Florence, WI

September 5, 2014

On an “Up North” vacation to explore and enjoy the splendors of Northern Wisconsin and the Western Upper Peninsula, our first stop was in the town of Florence, Wisconsin. Like something out of a Norman Rockwell painting, downtown Florence features a Main Street (a.k.a Central Avenue) with a cafe, church, laundry mat, funeral home, and ice cream shop.

Looking for the more “family friendly” attractions, here’s what we did, where we ate, and where we stayed on our mid-August visit.
