Best of the ‘Burbs 2015: Attraction/landmark
Mazo Beach, Mazomanie
Part of the Mazomanie Bottoms State Natural Area that nestles alongside the Wisconsin River, Mazo Beach is a scenic sandy stretch popular for picnicking, swimming and bird-watching. And shedding inhibitions, judgment and clothing. Open just on weekends, Mazo is the state’s only legal public nude beach. “It’s very freeing to a lot of people,” says Jim Dickey, member of Friends of Mazo Beach, an organization that works with the DNR to keep the beach safe and clean. “What people have found is through more acceptance of their own skin, they find a greater acceptance of other people and maybe the environment around them, ol’ Mother Nature.”
Finalists: Cave of the Mounds, Blue Mounds; Stoughton Opera House, Stoughton
