“Wisconsin Fall Drive Reimagined”

This is a Fall driving tour in parts of Wisconsin and Minnesota. This is a three-night event with one night in Prairie du Chien followed by two nights in Onalaska (La Crosse). If you are unable to start the tour on Thursday mid-morning, you can join the group Thursday night in Prairie du Chien or in Onalaska on Friday night, but you would miss some truly phenomenal roads and wonderful time with your fellow Schoneslanders.

The PCA event formally starts Thursday at 9:30 am from the Ankeny Casey’s at 2601 SE Creekview Dr, with a great lunch stop in Grundy Center at the Landmark Bistro followed by an afternoon break at Pedretti’s Bakery in Elkader. After the bakery stop, we will have another fantastic stop in Elkader to see Tom Chandlers very eclectic car collection including a few cars that have been to the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance as well as to the Amelia Island Concours! We will then continue the drive to Prairie du Chien followed with dinner at the wonderful Angie’s Black Angus restaurant where we have enjoyed great food and service for the many past years during the Wisconsin Fall drive. We will stay on Thursday night 10/3 at the River District hotel where we have a block of rooms at a rate of $159.99. Please make your reservation by calling the hotel at 608-326-7878 and ask for the rooms under the Schonesland Porsche Club room block. 

On Friday morning we will take the roads towards La Crosse driving along the same roads we have done in the past but going in the opposite direction. We will have lunch in Camp Douglas at the Almost Home Bar and Grill as before and then continue to Onalaska for our two-night stay at the Hampton Inn. King Bedrooms are $159 and ones with two Queen Beds are $169. Please make your reservation by calling the hotel at 608-779-5000 or better yet using this direct link to our room block:  Schonesland Porsche Club Booking Link – Hampton Inn OnalaskaOn Saturday we have planned a great drive following the Mississippi River on the Minnesota side to Winona before crossing over to Wisconsin. We will drive through the fantastic curves and elevations in Wildcat Mountain State Park before enjoying lunch at the Rockton Bar in La Farge. Friday and Saturday nights we will have dinner in two groups at Ciatti’s Italian Grill and at Manny’s Cocina swapping locations the second night. Both restaurants are across the parking lot from our hotel. The PCA sanctioned drive ends on Saturday and return on Sunday is not part of the formal event as everyone can return home to Des Moines on their own whether driving alone or in groups.
