In cooperation with Chicago Skeptics, SkepTours is proud to promote George’s return to the midwest.
A gathering of the Midwestern skeptical tribes will convene at a classic of Midwestern tourist destinations, House on the Rock. Saturday, March 31-Sunday, April 1st in Spring Green, WI.
Saturday will be planned for a tour of House on the Rock. It’s an extended museum of antiques, faux antiques, interesting objects, optical illusions, a giant carousels, music machines, architectural interest, roadside attraction that played a central role in Neil Gaiman’s “American Gods”. It is a truly unique piece of Americana.
For those who do stay overnight, a fun Sunday excursion might be Cave of the Mounds, which is about a half hour from House on the Rock, and where I first learned the difference between stalactites and stalagmites as a wee child.
Ticket price for Geo is $20 with a very generous sliding scale for those who can’t afford that (i.e. if you can’t afford it, let me know.; tour cost for House on the Rock is $20-ish); lodging for those staying over Sat to Sun looks like it’ll cost somewhere between $45-$115 depending on what you want.
The House on the Rock Resort

Spring Green Motel
(keep expectations to a minimum, I’m guessing)
one bed, one person $45 one bed, two people $55
two beds $65
The Usonian Inn
