7 days in Wisconsin-Minnesota-Iowa-Illinois

We have to buy a Cheese Hat.

Field review by the editors. It's a legit souvenir, not just a badge of Wisconsin sports fanaticism. The bright yellow sponge wedges are sold at tourist attractions, like coonskin caps in Frontier Villages and Indian headdresses at Trading Posts. And since we're off to visit the cheesiest sights in the land of milk and mosquitos, well, that hat will come in handy.

The Road Cheese™ hypertour is one we've been thinking about for a while: a sweep up from Chicago via Wisconsin and Minnesota to the Canadian border, investigating museums, attractions and statues missed on our east-west journeys. And there are a few attractions we owe a revisit to chronicle reported "changes": the SPAM Museum, Tommy Bartlett's Robot World, Max Nordeen's Wheels Museum.

We opt to visit four states, leaving plenty of lake country targets for future trips.

Trojan Horse.It's a satisfying hypertour harvest -- over 100 attractions visited (or attempted). Since driving Road Cheese, we've published a number of individual sight reports. Now you can retrace the entire trip...
