2024 Corvette Adventures Road Tours
  

 

Wisconsin back roads are perfect for driving your Corvette the way it was meant to be driven.  Our guided tours are designed to give you some of the best of Wisconsin's back roads.

 

The number of Corvettes in each tour will be limited to 15-18.  In addition, some tours will have required fees for samples and tours as indicated in the tour description, as we have done in the past.  For planning purposes, we have printed all fees at the tour stops. 

 

Staging for all Corvette Adventures road tours will be in the road adjacent to the registration area 15 minutes before launching.  As is our policy, we will launch all tours on time.  You will receive a route map of all tours you have signed up for in your welcome packet.

 

Please also remember that most brewery and winery tours require closed toe shoes.  We can’t emphasize this enough. . . every year someone forgets – please don’t be the one.  Also, don’t forget to get gas before your tour!!

 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION – TOUR DESCRIPTIONS

“SCENIC” – This will be a relaxed, leisurely drive through the countryside.  Take in the scenery and the beauty of the land and enjoy the sights of the countryside driven in a relaxed manner.

 

“SPIRITED” – These tours are for drivers (and their co-pilot) who are confident in themselves and their cars and who enjoy driving their Corvettes in a more aggressive manner as the opportunity presents itself on a tour. Slower, more cautious drivers should either drive from the back of these tours or limit themselves to “scenic” tours for maximum enjoyment of everyone.

fermented and blended to create bold, award winning wines that will please any palate.
