Wisconsin Tourism: Best of Wisconsin

Or choose Wisconsin’s Apostle Islands—kayakers will love exploring Lake Superior’s many caves and shipwrecks.
Packers fans don’t wear those cheese-wedge hats for nothing! Foodies will love tasting as many of Wisconsin’s artisanal cheeses as possible.

And what goes better with artisanal cheese than craft beer? In Milwaukee, visit the Lakefront and Sprecher Breweries for tours and tastings.
Wisconsin Dells is a classic family vacation destination. A vacation in Wisconsin Dells will put you close to all the excitement—you’ll have to tear the kids away from the theme parks, wave pools and water parks in Wisconsin Dells!

The Dairy State’s largest city may cling to its cheese-y heritage, but it’s about more than brats and Miller beer, brewed here since 1855. Though the city welcomed a dozen or so craft breweries in the last two years, visitors also celebrate its food and cocktail culture, Lake Michigan vistas, bucolic hikes and world-class art at the Santiago Calatrava-designed Milwaukee Art Museum.22 items
