Let Your Journey Begin...
Highway 51 is the ribbon of road that ties the north and south, creating a link between the people of Highway 51, and a pathway for travelers to explore the many cultures, cuisines and nostalgia of mid-America.
As you travel Highway 51 from Hurley to Beloit, and beyond, you will remember that "It's all about the journey...." You'll find the largest penny in the world, the biggest dairy in America's Dairyland, the boyhood home of John Muir, Batman's car, white buffalo and more. Along the way you'll be treated to regional delights such as squeaky cheese curds, grilled brats, a Friday night Fish Fry, fresh sweet corn and hand crafted beer.
Each community on Highway 51 invites you to become a native. Celebrate at our festivals, enjoy a meal at our favorite restaurants, explore our parks and forests, and take a seat at our theaters.
