Fond du Lac Things to Do

  • Children's Museum of Fond Du Lac

    Museum costs $6 a person, and within 30 minutes had to look for things to do. We went with a 7 year old and it was a mix of things far too complicated for her and too simple. No balls for the Foosball table. Another feature was missing its parts and was broken. The cords were all tangled for the operation table, did I mention we only got there 30...

  • Lakeside Park

    I think this is the largest park in Fond du Lac's at nearly 400 acres. We've went to this park every year for Walleye Weekend, not to mention to visit the petting zoo run by the local convent. I'm not sure if you are allowed to climb the lighthouse anymore, but I'll try to find out. Because the park is located on the shoreline of Lake Winnebago...

  • Fond du Lac Lighthouse

    The Fond du Lac Lighthouse has become the symbol of the surrounding city, located at the southern end of Lake Winnebago. As you travel the streets of Fond du Lac, the image of the lighthouse is readily seen on bridges, road signs, and advertising. The reason for the community’s affinity for the lighthouse is perhaps due to the fact that the beacon...

  • SEAFOOD AT SALTY'S

    On any Friday or Saturday night you can't get into this place unless you get here very early. Salty's has the best seafood in all of Fond du Lac County.

    Now that I got your attention, there are strippers here, one night a year JukeBox Charlies sponsors a male revue show the night befor deer season opens. They call this hunter widows show or something like that. This american style restaurant is set up to look like a restaurant from the fifties. It's actually charming. After dinner there's dancing....

  • THE BEST FROZEN CUSTARD EVER

    Culver's has one of the best, if not the best, frozen custard in Fond du Lac. They make it fresh daily. You can get a variety of fast food items here, only don't count on getting them fast. They don't cook it until you order it so there is a bit of await, usually less than ten minutes. They have what is called a butter burger here, essentially its...

    This is not the place to be if you are seeking night life. Most everything closes at 10PM except the local bars.

    Dress Code: Anything goes.

Fond du Lac Shopping

    Hoff's Red Owl grocery in Brownsville, Wisconsin, make their own great Bratwurst, at amazing prices. Brats at Hoffs are nearly always on special, sometimes as low as 99-cents a pound. Even at the regular price ($1.59), they're worth stocking up on. I always take some home, and everyone raves about them. If you're traveling, they keep pretty well for several days in a cooler, even without ice. They come in about ten different varieties, from Italian to Cajun, but purists will want to just get the Plain, or the Garlic (our favorite). You can phone ahead to request the current price.

Fond du Lac Off The Beaten Path

    If you get the chance, you should go see this group perform. Their concerts are free with a free will offering. This group is comprised of women of all ages who are absolutely fabulous to listen to. Their program changes from season to season and they put on 2-3 big shows a year for the public. The rest of their time is spent performing for the elderly, handicapped and terminally ill. I am partial to this group because I was a member when I lived in the area. This was a fabulous experience, but worth the time to go see.

Fond du Lac Favorites

    Favorite thing: Every one has heard of Dairy Queen, I know that, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to post this great picture from one of my child care center's field trips. The kids all decided one day that as their reward they wanted to go to dairy queen. So with a couple of phone calls and getting parents to volunteer as chaperones, we were off for an ice cream treat a couple days later. To this day those kids remember watching the ice cream being made, learning how to make an ice cream cake and getting to get a treat of their choice. They had a fantastic time. The DQ was the one on Fond du Lac ave. It's much better than the one on Johnson Street.
