Things to see in Wisconsin
The city of Wisconsin Dells is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Midwest. Against a backdrop of rocks and rapids, where rafting, fishing, zip-lining, and other outdoor adventures are enjoyed, the area is famous for its indoor water parks. Known as the “Water Park Capital of the World,” the city is home to Wilderness Park, one of the largest water parks in the U.S., boasting 240,000 square feet of slides, wave pools, spas, and more. For a deeper exploration into nature, head north to the Land O’Lakes. The region has over 200 unspoiled lakes, popular with canoeists, campers, and nature enthusiasts, and the world’s largest chain of inland lakes in Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest. Returning south, the city of Milwaukee has a strong arts and culture scene, including the Harley-Davidson museum. Milwaukee is also known for holding the world’s largest music festival, Summerfest, on the Lake Michigan beachfront.
Where to stay in Wisconsin
Wisconsin Dells is the state’s most popular destination for action-packed family vacations all year round. In winter, dedicated skiers may wish to go north to Wausau at the foot of Granite Peak, widely considered the best ski slopes in Wisconsin. To kick back and relax, visit the picturesque towns dotted along Lake Michigan. The scenic area around the Door County Peninsula offers old-town charm, and is popular with couples and families looking for a more relaxed break by the coast. But for arts, culture, and nightlife, Milwaukee is the number-1 spot, and good for couples in search of a short city break.
How to get to Wisconsin
Milwaukee Mitchell and Madison Dane County airports provide mainly domestic flights into Wisconsin. Just south in Illinois, Chicago O’Hare is one of the busiest airports in the world and offers direct flights to major cities across the globe. I-90 transcontinental highway spans the entire northern U.S., passing through the heart of Wisconsin via Madison and Wisconsin Dells, while I-94 follows the coast of Lake Michigan between Milwaukee and Chicago. Daily bus services also operate between these cities, and this is by far the cheapest way to travel to Wisconsin. By train, several cities (including Milwaukee and Wisconsin Dells) are connected to Chicago and Seattle along the Amtrak Empire Builder line.
