Preview Post: Peaceful Valley Park

Peaceful Valley Park in Antigo has a big, wooden, community-built playground.  It looks beautiful!  They have a sand box in summer and an ice rink in winter.  I think if I had to pick one park to visit in Antigo, Peaceful Valley Park might be it!

Preview Post: North Clermont Park

North Clermont Park in Astigo is mostly a playground.  I don't see any climbers, but it looks like they have the updated classics: swings, slide, merry-go-round.  There is also a basketball hoop.

Mendlik Park in Antigo doesn't look like their very best park, but there is at least stuff to do.  There is a small playground for the kids as well as basketball.  They have some green space as well.

Preview Post: Kingsbury Park

Kingsbury Park in Antigo is called a "mini park" for good reason.  It really just looks like a small courtyard.  There doesn't seem to be anything except one tree, one bench, and a patch of grass.  I guess if you're walking downtown, the kids can walk across a piece of grass instead of the sidewalk?  Doesn't seem worth look for, though!

Belleville Community Park

Should you happen to be dragged accompanied to Belleville by your significant other who has to visit the Duluth Trading Outlet and should you need something to do while aforementioned significant other browses aforementioned outlet, you may be wondering what exactly there is to DO in Belleville.  The answer is: not a ton.

However, there is a pretty little park!  Community Park is on Lake Belle View with a beautiful causeway walking path. 

There is also a small playground.  Important note: it's right next to the water, and there is NO fence or barrier.

There are buildings with bathrooms, but they were all locked when we were here.  There was a port-a-potty.

Mustard Museum

The Mustard Museum in Middleton is one like no other.  It's not huge, but it's worth the stop.

The actual museum is on the lower level.  I believe they have every kind of mustard ever made.

There is also some kitschy memorabilia, as every good museum should have!

But the real fun of this museum is upstairs.  You can sample any mustard they sell - which is a ton!  They have lots of different kinds open around the store with pretzels set out to grab.  You can ask for anything you see, though!  It was fantastic!
