Wisconsin Frights is your premiere travel guide to all the curious, bizarre, and creepy things our great weird state has to offer.
Launched in 2014, we set out with boots on the ground to uncover and share the stories of Wisconsin’s legendary places in hopes of evoking the same curiosity and passion that we feel for them. We believe that the ghosts of the past convey interest, context, and relevance to the present, and that the folklore of a place, whether historical or contemporary, strengthens our connection to it, and deepens our experiences with it.
Some travelers want food, festivals, and family memories. Others, like us, want to know what came before, and what might still linger within. At Wisconsin Frights, we’re creating a visitor’s guide for those travelers, the dark tourists who aren’t necessarily interested in the water park, but rather what may be buried beneath it.
Whether you want to explore haunted places, encounter a lake monster, get abducted by aliens, or just find a unique place to eat, Wisconsin Frights is your guide to weird history, unusual attractions, and otherworldly destinations throughout the state.
