Beloit Winter Offers Beatific Experience
Written by Mike Shubic of Mike’s Road Trip.
While road tripping around southern Wisconsin this winter, I discovered the beatific city of Beloit. Located just across the northern border of Illinois, this pleasantly unexpected town reinforced my passion for discovering those hidden gems of the road. Beloit is a small city of about 35,000, but offers visitors some amenities they might not expect, but will certainly appreciate.
My road trip to Beloit started off by flying into Milwaukee and renting a car. With three route options to choose from, I ended up picking the one in the middle. A short drive on I-94, then veering off to highway 67 south, took me into. I continued south on highway 51 right into Beloit. It’s not a very long drive, maybe 2 hours, but it took me about three with a few scenic stops along the way. As I drove south, I passed several farms, one with a silo and a large red barn that I really wanted to photograph, but found no place to pull over. The blanket of fresh white snow in the fields really made the red structure pop against the mostly blue sky.
