Wisconsin offers a friendly Midwestern culture, and it pulls heavily from its German and Scandinavian roots.
Wisconsin is known as the "Dairy State" and Milwaukee is known as Brew City. Cheese... and beer. Not bad things for which to be known. Cheese curds are popular, but get mixed reviews. One of our favorites for beer is Lakefront Brewery.
Brewers and Bucks and Badgers. Oh, and we can't forget the Packers. Objectively, the state has winning sports teams. For an unforgettable experience, watch a Packers game at Lambeau and hit up a tailgate in Madison for Badgers game.
Wisconsin touches on two of the Great Lakes (Michigan and Superior). Half of the state population lives in these regions and lake life is a key part of Wisconsin summers. In total, Wisconsin has 15,000 lakes.
One of the country's best state fairs, the Wisconsin version regularly draws a million guests over the 11-day celebration.
