Virtual learning has left a lot of students struggling to get physically active everyday. Between the four hours of synchronous classes, and the independent work time in the afternoon, it can be hard to find the time to get outside and be active. Exercise has many health benefits, both physically and mentally. It can help with the stress caused by schoolwork and transition to virtual learning, so it’s an important part of the day. But something as simple as a walk can help you reach your step goal and bring you all the benefits of moving your body.
The best walks are the ones where you can take in the view. This is something I learned during quarantine where my family was struggling to find things that got us out of the house for the day, but that wouldn’t have us be around a lot of people. Wisconsin is full of amazing parks, trails and other places to check out and get a good walk in, and the Milwaukee area is as well.
I’ve put together four of the best places I’ve walked in and around Milwaukee. Some of these are a bit of a drive, but they are well worth it. I’ve also included photos I’ve taken on my walks, there have been so many great landscapes, flowers, and sometimes animals to wonder at and experience. The addresses of the parks that I've been to are below so you can check them out as well.
Lion Den Gorge Nature Preserve - 511 High Bluff Dr, Grafton, WI 53024
Ice Age Trail - Eagle W364S7310 WI-67, Eagle, Village of, WI 53119
Summerfest Park - Milwaukee 200 N Harbor Dr, Milwaukee, WI 53202
