Looking for a scenic route from Madison to MenomonieI'm looking for a nice route from Madison to Menomonie, rather than taking the interstate. - Monica, Madison, Wis.
Try taking U.S. 14 to Spring Green and Richland Center. You could continue to Viroqua, or take 56 instead.
From Viroqua, take 14 to Westby, Coon Valley and La Crosse.
Take 35 along the Mississippi to Nelson, then head north on 25 to Menomonie.
That will be a really pretty drive.
