One of my favorite things to do when it's finally nice out is hit some garage sales. I remember as a kid going around my friend's neighborhoods being absolutely mind blown that I could get such cool, random stuff for so cheap!

So how does 100 miles of garage sales sound? Sounds like a dream come true for me.

If you've never heard of the 100 Mile Garage Sale in Wisconsin, then let me be the first to tell you about this glorious event.

Deals and steals aren’t all you’ll find along the route, though. There are plenty of restaurants, too. Hotels and campgrounds are just as plentiful. Keep in mind, though, accommodations typically fill up quickly, as savvy shoppers know the key to great bargains is arriving early.

If you're looking for a unique, incredibly Midwestern experience to add to the calendar, this is it.

The event's website details all of the Wisconsin communities that will be involved -

  • Prescott, Diamond Bluff, Hager City, Bay City, Maiden Rock, Stockholm, Pepin, Nelson, Alma, Buffalo City, Cochrane, Fountain City
