HotelTonight – Marshfield Hotels
Driving through states like Wisconsin will change your preconceived notions of these places. It's happened to me many times in the past as I've traveled across the United States, and I could actually feel it happening in America's Dairyland. I have spent a lot of time in cities like Milwaukee, Green Bay and Madison, and I've really enjoyed all of them. Those were the only parts of the state I had really seen until my last trip. I was driving from Green Bay to Minneapolis for meetings the following day and then to catch my flight the following afternoon. I got a text while stopped for gas that said that those meetings had been canceled. Suddenly, I had 24 hours to myself in a part of Wisconsin I had never seen. I did a quick search and found a bit of information about a little city called Marshfield. I decided to spend my 24 hours there so I could explore it. I didn't have a place to stay, but I did have my HotelTonight app with me on my phone. It would find me a Marshfield hotel room as soon as I was ready to get some sleep. Off I went.
It quickly became apparent that Marshfield was one of those small cities – fewer than 20,000 people live there – that carried more than one surprise with it. I got out of my car to have some coffee and to get my bearings. I talked with a local lady who told me she had an appointment at the Marshfield Clinic later that day. As it turns out, this is a clinic that is renowned throughout the world. High-level medical professionals from every spot on the globe compete to work there. I was surprised that such quality of care could be found in such an out-of-the-way place.
My first stop outside of the coffee shop for the day was the Wildwood Park & Zoo. I wasn't expecting much, but those expectations were immediately exceeded. The park is over 300 acres in size, and the animals there provide a very nice glimpse of the wildlife you may encounter in the woods of Wisconsin. I saw majestic bald eagles, wolves, coyotes, bears and many other species. I also got a chance to talk to some more people, and much to my surprise, nearly all of them were local. Everyone was extremely friendly.
I felt like something with girth for dinner, and one of the people at the zoo told me about a local pizza place that wasn't fancy in its style but delivered on the food in a big way. I gave it a try. The place makes its own enormous deep-dish crusts that are so tall it's almost embarrassing to even have it sitting in front of you. Luckily, the toppings were so fresh and the bread so good that it wasn't sitting there for very long. I stuffed myself with stuffed pizza.

After such an enormous dinner, I was ready for some rest. I remembered just then that I had yet to book a Marshfield hotel room. No worries – I opened my HotelTonight app and booked a room within a minute or two. I made my way over there and fell asleep almost immediately, happy that I had seen another part of Wisconsin.
