Wisconsin’s beautiful seasons
Each season has its own character and assortment of activities for Wisconsinites. Winter’s unforgettable beauty sets the scene for skiing, snowmobiling, ice fishing and sledding. Soon it is Spring, and Wisconsin’s many lakes open up as the boating, sailing and fishing season begins. Summertime is packed with outdoor adventures, plus county fairs and other festivals to visit all around the state. As we cool down in Fall it’s a great time to hike or camp, visit a pumpkin farm or enjoy a campfire – and hunting season arrives.
Motorsport enthusiasts have many ways to enjoy every season with options including ATV or UTV off-roading, snowmobiling, motorcycle and dirt bike riding, boating and jet skiing, and truck and tractor pulling. Other great options include auto and bike racing at Road America, the Milwaukee Mile, and local tracks like the Slinger Speedway.
If you like the outdoors, you’ll love it here
Rich in natural beauty and features like rivers, lakes and forests, Wisconsin is a sportsman’s paradise. If hiking or snowshoeing is your speed, there are parks and trails throughout the state for you to explore. Like to hunt and fish? You’ve definitely come to the right place. And if you feel the need for speed Wisconsin has miles and miles of trails for ATV and snowmobile use, dirt bike racing and drag racing tracks.
Each season gives new reasons to visit Wisconsin’s incredible lakes and rivers, scenic roads that crisscross the state, remote places to hike, fish or hunt, and so much more. From the heavily forested northern part of the state to the hills and valleys of the driftless southwest, to the shores of Lake Michigan, adventures await you.
Night life and city lights
Wisconsin’s charm doesn’t end where the sidewalks start. Sports fans find plenty to cheer about in Milwaukee and Green Bay, and the music scene here is unbelievable. Milwaukee’s world-famous Summerfest attracts top artists from nearly every music genre, and people travel from across the country to enjoy this festival that would be just a short drive from your neighborhood.
Restaurants featuring cultural delicacies or local versions of everyone’s favorites can be found in every town. Patrons of the arts will enjoy the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, the Milwaukee Art Museum, Milwaukee Repertory Theater, and smaller organizations in neighboring communities.
