HotelTonight – Tomah Hotels
When I drive past a small town as I'm moving down the highway, I rarely give that town a second thought. I'm busy trying to get to wherever I'm going and I'm almost always driving for work. The most time I think I had ever spent in one of these small communities until recently was about 15 minutes, or however long it took to fuel my car and get something to eat. Yet something has always bothered me about constantly being in a hurry, and that something is the question of whether or not I was missing out on some memorable experiences. I got a chance to answer that question on my last business trip to Wisconsin. I was in the southwestern part of the state when I got a call that told me that my meetings for later that day were canceled. I had 24 hours to do what I wanted. I wanted to see what life was like in one of these communities. I chose to spend my day in Tomah. I wasn't worried about lodging, either, as I had my HotelTonight app with me. I'd book a Tomah hotel room as soon as I was ready.
Wisconsin is known for its cheese, and I absolutely love cheese. One of the first places I encountered when I got to Tomah was a very large cheese market. I had to go inside to see what was happening in there. It was as if I had stumbled upon a massive market of not just cheeses, but snack foods in general. The cheeses were not only delicious, but they were almost all from local producers – real Wisconsin cheese. I bought a bunch of things that made for great gifts. I found some things for myself and had some nice conversations with the workers about what to do next.
Touring Amish country sounds like the ultimate 'tourist' thing to do regardless of where you do it, but the area just outside of Tomah where the local Amish live feels just a bit different. It's not only closer to town than most of the Amish communities I had seen, the people seem more familiar with it. I did a quick visit to Amish country there and enjoyed a few more snacks while talking to a few more people. It was once again a very friendly and happy couple of hours.
I wanted to do a real down-home Wisconsin type of dinner, complete with more cheese, some beef, and a beer or two. I was told of a tavern near downtown that had been serving incredibly tasty burgers for decades, so that's where I chose to go. The place was not fancy, but it was comfortable and welcoming. The cheeseburgers were outstanding, particularly because of the dab of butter they put on the patty. The fried cheese curds were divine and the beer was nice and cold.

After a full dinner and a full day, I decided to call it a night. I opened my HotelTonight app and booked a Tomah hotel room in seconds. I couldn't wait to get into bed and relax, and I was happy that I had taken some time to see this lovely little community.
