The Jens Jensen curvy road, Highway 42, to the Northport ferry launch is one of the most photographed places in Wisconsin. With 15 curves, this stretch of highway conforms to nature rather than trying to shape it and in doing so it makes for a fun road to drive on and a beautiful road to photograph in any season, but especially so in fall.

Horseshoe Bay Drive south of Egg Harbor is an extension of Bayshore Drive, as it is what Bayshore Drive turns into once you get closer to Egg Harbor. The best views on Horseshoe Bay Drive come as you pass the Alpine Golf Course, where you will find breathtaking views of the changing colors of the bluff.
