From our islands to our bluffs, our rolling farmland to our 15,000 lakes, Wisconsin is brimming with tourism treasures. Although not meant to be exhaustive, consider the following bucket list your kick-start to exploring the very best of America’s Dreamland:
Take a drive down Highway 42 in Door County
Catch a muskie on the world’s largest chain of freshwater lakes in Vilas County
Explore Door County’s spooky side on a haunted trolley tour of the area
You really can’t go wrong when it comes to exploring our beautiful state—and that’s something I think some folks (especially those of us who work and live here) may take for granted. Now make your own bucket list for the summer…and share your ideas with me below!
