Abe Martin's Bucket List Month at eXplore Brown County

2016 May 1-31

You're never too old to enjoy eXplore Brown County's 15 different zip lines that are part of 4 uniquely different tours! The courses are low impact and lots of fun for all ages. Up to 90 feet in the air, these zip lines are 80 to 1220 feet in length. Bucket List Month features the quips of Brown County cartoonist Ken Hubbard's character Abe Martin. Hubbard's humor is as timely today as it was during the 1930's. EXplore BC guides will share the folk characters of Brown County through Hubbard's humor and Abe's enlightened words!
