Jefferson County, just a hop, skip and jump away from Janesville!  We welcome you to take a day trip to visit our trails, restaurants, lakes, historical sites and get a taste of our breweries, wineries, and distilleries.  Stay at one of our inns, campgrounds or hotels and spend the weekend!

We surveyed our members and came up with the TOP 5 THINGS TO DO in Jefferson County.


It’s a list of fun options to explore, SAFELY, in Jefferson County.

You’ll see we have great outdoor recreational activities that are waiting to explore and naturally offer social distancing. From paddling on the Rock River or nearby lakes; biking or hiking our great trails like the Glacial River Trail; and enjoying history and the outdoors in our state and local parks like Aztalan State Park, we are a perfect destination to experience Wisconsin’s beauty. Be sure to check out our website for information on ideas to explore now and later.

As many of our communities’ restaurants and retail establishments are fully following CDC, state, and county mandates and guidelines, we encourage all visitors to view the websites of individual businesses and organizations to learn how they are keeping their customers and visitors safe during this time. We also strongly encourage visitors to practice safe habits, including maintaining social distancing, wearing face coverings, washing hands frequently, and avoiding face touching.

We know times are tough and we hope by providing this list and information, we offer ways to safely explore now during the pandemic and later. Additional ideas across the state may be found at the Wisconsin Department of Tourism’s website, Travel Wisconsin.

We look forward to sharing all the ways you can enjoy Jefferson County!
