Monroe, the “Swiss cheese capital of the USA” might be known for its… well… production of delicious Swiss cheese, but that doesn’t mean that this lovely town doesn’t have anything else to offer. If you’re planning a trip to Madison this fall, then a day-trip to Monroe is an absolute must.

So without further ado, here are 3 fun things to do in Monroe this fall:

  1. Visit the Roth Kase Cheese Factory. What’s a visit to Monroe without a visit to the historic Roth Kase Cheese Factory? If you’ve always wondered how cheese is made, or if you’re simply interested in trying some of the best cheeses that Wisconsin has to offer, then make some time to visit Monroe’s very own cheese factory.
  2. Visit the Minhas Craft Brewery. For some people, cheese and beer sounds like music their ears. If you’re one of those people, then you’ll feel right at home in Monroe where the country’s second oldest micro-brewery as well as the tenth largest can be found. As a craft beer lover, don’t miss the chance to drop by the Minhas Craft Brewery for a taste of the best Wisconsin craft beer!
  3. Visit the National Historic Cheesemaking Center. Yep, that’s right! Cheese strikes again in the “Swiss cheese capital of the USA”. At the National Historic Cheesemaking Center you will learn more about the history and process of making cheese in Wisconsin. If you’re the kind of person who enjoys learning experiences, then don’t miss the opportunity to visit Monroe’s cheesemaking center.
