Eye on Travel

Peter Greenberg Worldwide–Green County Cheese Days 100th Anniversary, Monroe WI–September 20, 2014

Locations in this article:  Madison, WI

CheeseDays2Located an hour from Madison, Wisconsin, you’ll find a town called Monroe. This small town is all about cheese,and after all, Wisconsin makes 650 varieties of cheese. Monroe’s also home to the most master cheesemakers in the state — so it’s only appropriate that this week Peter Greenberg Worldwide broadcasts from the Green County Cheese Days 100th Anniversary celebration. Monroe — population 10,000–will be invaded this weekend by more than 200,000 folks for this year’s festivities.

We are joined by Arnie Weissmann, Editor-in-Chief of Travel Weekly, who talks about the impact of the spread of Ebola on travel and how we can protect ourselves every time we fly. We also chat with Wired‘s Alex Davies about cars that drive themselves and how airlines may soon implement devices that make you forget you are on a plane at all.

But don’t forget about the cheese! Stephanie Klett, Wisconsin’s Secretary of Tourism and the official Limburger Queen, sits down with us to talk about the “king of stinky cheeses” and how Monroe is the only location in Wisconsin making it. All this and more when we broadcast from the Green County Cheese Days Festival 100th Anniversary in Monroe, Wisconsin.
