Hwy 45 Wayside Series
In tribute to the dying breed of waysides.
We will miss you.

Notice how the waysides are disappearing? In fact, I don't even see any rest areas being put on the new interstates in Wisconsin. Even in my own neighborhood over in Brillion, WI, two waysides have been closed down recently. My kids use to love to play with the hand pumps.

I created this series for families who are already traveling north to the forests and lakes. All of the caches are right next to Highway 45 and will NOT require you to use anymore precious petro products. I estimate it will take about 5 hours one way to visit all 6 caches. Make sure to take along your swimsuit for one of them!

I travel Hwy 45 often to Land O' Lakes, frequently with teenagers in tow. I listed several places with GPS coordinates to stop at that kids of all ages will enjoy. Travelling with kids? Stop at the waysides along the way and let them burn off steam running around with a GPS.

Here's a list of the waysides:
