Re: Why Should I Visit Wisconsin
East coast, Lake Michigan. North coast you've got Lake Superior. North east out past Greenbay, you've got the Door county thing.
I'll give you my WI tour idea. Milwaukee, check out Harley Davidson, and Allis Chalmers history in West Allis, throw in a Brewers game. Go on up to Oshkosh, for your aviation fix. From there continue north to Green Bay, genuflect at Lambeau Field, schedule a fishing trip out onto the big lake. Cruise on out onto the peninsula for a Door County tour. It's a woman thing, just do it. Might just as well get on into the UP of Michigan at this point. Escanaba is the home of Bark River knives, then I'd go to Munising (one of our GB members lives there abouts), on to Marquette, Iron Mountain and back through to WI.
Eagle River, WI. is home to snowmobile racing. Rhinelander, Minocqua, Tomahawk, ad nauseum, is a nice place to enjoy the north woods and do some fishing. For me this is the classic Wisconsin tourist outdoors area.
Now to decide if you've had enough or want to finish out a Great Lakes tour. Go north and add Lake Superior by way of Ashland, WI. as long as you are here head west on hwy 2 through Superior, WI. and on into Duluth, MN. plenty to do in Duluth, they are doing their level best to make it a destination city, with festivals every weekend. The tall ships thing is very cool (August I believe).
Heading south, if you skipped Superior get onto I-39 down towards Stephens Point, stop at the Point brewery. At this time pick a likely 2 lane and travel through the small towns. They are for the most part alive and well not ruined by Walmart or sprawl. For example Coloma, WI to Tomah, WI. Tomah area is a giant cranberry growing area, with tourism etc., Also a healthy Amish population if you're into that stuff.
You'll figure out that BEER, BRATS, and CHEESE CURDS, rule the day throughout the state. Demand fresh squeaky fresh cheese curds warm still is optimum. Demand the local brew, Lienenkugels, Point, New Glarius, whenever possible. Hit those local supper clubs and bars demanding fried fish, fried cheese curds, a brat with plenty of kraut, and a cold drought beer.
Okay, another route worth considering is west from Tomah to La Crosse, WI where I would pick up hwy 35 S, the great river Road, it parallels the Mississippi River. It will Peter out and you decide if Madison or Platteville/Dubuque make more sense.
That ought to give you some ideas. On the other hand, you can hit the Dells and say **** with it WI. is just a tourist trap and leave unimpressed.
