Spring Green Things to Do

  • House on the Rock tour 1

    The House on the Rock is divided into three sections, you can visit just the house or have the ultimate experience and visit all three parts. Tour 1 is a visit to the house itself, Alex Jordan must have been really short or a really bad architect as most places in the house require vigilance as to not knock your head on the ceilings.

  • Arty school - FL Wright designed

    FL Wright designed this in 1958, and i was built the next year. It was a grade school, but is now used as an art/community building. Still looks like it was built yesterday. You can walk around it, and inside if it's open.

  • Frank Lloyd Wright Tours

    Frank Lloyd Wright not only grew up in the Spring Green area, but later on built his home--Taliesin (A Welsh word), his studio and his school there. There are many tours that are offered of his work, check the website to see them. I did the full tour, saw everything over 4 hours. They take you to see the first building he designed, a small church...

  • F.L Wright Spring Green Visitors Center...

    The local M&I bank building and it's former drive-thru annex that now serves as the Spring Green Visitors' Center were designed by former Spring Green resident Frank Lloyd Wright. It's a nice addition to the sightseeing of Taliesin and the House on the Rock tourist attractions.

  • House on The Rock

    Since I grew up in Wisconsin everyone has always said "you have to go see the House on The Rock", so I did-Honestly this "attraction" didn't impress me much not for the price of admission. I am sure at some time this house was truly amazing-I've just seen better is all. Don't get me wrong The house is impressive and has cool features, but it is...

  • The House on the Rock

    This is a place definitely unlike any other. If you've ever been here you know what I'm talking about. This place is huge, and there's a lot to see so I would recommend about 3 hours for it (the whole place covers over 200 acres). You walk through the actual house itself which sits on a 60 ft long outcrop of rock, and through various other...

  • The Wisconsin River

    This river is a great adventure. My father and I would go tubing (in tire inner tube tires) down this river in the 70's.This river is alive and demands respect. She changes her borders each spring. She is home to many large birds along with the migrating SandHill Cranes. Many turtles line her banks and sun bath on the fallen logs and if you are...

  • The House on the ROCK!

    When Alex Jordan discovered a 60 - foot sandstone chimney rock, he envisioned it to be the ideal location for a weekend retreat. However, after constructing the magnificent House on the rock, he found his retreat was drawing curious visitors in drovers, It soon became apparent that the house was more than a simple gateway - it was a place that...

Spring Green Restaurants

  • General Store

    The general store is always a busy place to grab a large breakfast or a good lunch. If you're in town for the American Players Theater, you can run into the actors from the plays at the general store. Sit outside on the porch and enjoy the free wi-fi available or browse the store for food, drinks, clothing and collectibles or catch an occasional...

  • Can't explain the crowds

    Arthur's is definitely a gold mine for the owners - no question about it... The place is always packed! What I don't understand is: WHY? In the ten years we've lived in the area, we've gone there maybe 4 or 5 times and always walked out wondering where the attraction is. In fact, the last time we were there, four of us dropped $100.00 and I've...

  • The Bank

    My one visit to The Bank was interesting. I can't complain too much about the food, but I do have an issue with the other reviewer's point that it was something like $11-20. Nowhere near (unless they meant for a glass of wine). I thought that, especially for a small restaurant in a very small town, it was extremely expensive! In fact, three of us...

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Little Norway village...its really not worth to visit and pay for it!! 'Village' is only few houses to see and nothing else! would either suggest Dutch Village in Michigan State - Holland city - much better and interesting...
    But anyway - this is my opinion..
