Day Trips from Illinois to Cave of the Mounds

Just three hours northwest of Chicago, Cave of the Mounds National Natural Landmark and southwest Wisconsin provide a peaceful change of pace from the hustle and bustle of the big city! Take a beautiful country drive through rolling hills and valleys and experience the jewels of the upper midwest. While in the area, your search for Chicago Things to Do should lead you here - to Wisconsin's unique driftless area - where we're sure Cave of the Mounds will become one of your favorite things to do in Wisconsin! We are also 45 minutes South of the Wisconsin Dells area--a great stop on your way there, or on your way home to Chicago!
