Land of Lakes
Wisconsin is bordered by both Lake Superior and Lake Michigan, and is second only to Michigan in Great Lakes shoreline. What's more, the state has over 14,000 inland lakes, so you can be certain that fishing and boating are very big here. If that's not enough water for you, then you'll want to make sure to visit Wisconsin Dells, which has the largest concentration of waterparks in the world, with 28, including the nation's largest water park, Noah's Ark.
Great White North
That doesn't mean that summer is the only good time to visit, however. Autumn brings spectacular foliage to the state's abundant natural landscapes, and there is a wealth of great winter activities to be found. Fans of winter sports will find hundreds of downhill ski runs at dozens of resorts, as well as over 700 miles of cross-country ski trails, and more than 25,000 miles of snowmobile trails. The state's geography allows some areas of the state to get an average of over 100 inches of snow per year.
Bikes, Beer, & Baraboo
Wisconsin's largest urban center is the city of Milwaukee, located on the western shore of Lake Michigan. Milwaukee is known for its numerous breweries, many of which offer tours, as well as the Harley-Davidson Museum. About an hour to the west is the capital city of Madison, home to the University of Wisconsin, and another hour northwest finds Wisconsin Dells and the city of Baraboo, which was once the home of the Ringling Brothers Circus and now houses Circus World, the world's largest circus museum.
