Wisconsin slips under the radar. It’s primarily known for its dairy production — the state produces about a quarter of the country’s cheese and residents tend to sport giant foam cheese wedges on their heads, especially at Green Bay Packer NFL games. But don’t let the fromage fixation and quirky headgear distract from the state’s other attractions. The state’s German and Scandinavian heritage helped to foster a thriving craft brewery scene, especially in up-and-coming Milwaukee. The Door Peninsula, jutting into Lake Michigan, boasts five state parks and hundreds of miles of scenic coastline, dotted with historic lighthouses.
From the most remote beaches to buzzy brasseries, our specialists have explored this little-known state so that they can design a trip just for you. They’ll design your Wisconsin trip around your particular interests, whether that’s learning more about the region’s industrial past or exploring the state’s beaches and forests.
You might take a guided tour of Taliesin, Frank Lloyd Wright’s home and studio in Madison, or admire the huge collection of Georgia O’Keefe paintings in the Milwaukee Art Museum. Walk along the Fox River State Trail or catch a game among the cheeseheads at Lambeau Field in Green Bay.
