Living in Chicago, we're very close to Wisconsin. The state is somewhat diverse, with three general areas, but we really know it for only one, and that is the large swathe of the state which lies below the true wilds to the north of Eau Claire and Wausau, covering most of the state, but excluding the southeastern corner, where Milwaukee is located. Milwaukee, to us, is a kind of smaller, sister city, very similar to our own in culture and outlook. The bulk of the state though, is a different story. Its largely rural and hard working, churning out dairy products and beer, sausages and especially cheese. We go there to enjoy the good country life, to enjoy nature and the lake, or to fish, snowmobile or pursue other forms of recreation. Wisconsin is a place where we go to have fun.
In this picture, taken at the end of march, there was little snow on the ground, and all that was required was a light jacket. However, to give you an idea just how cold the winters can be, there is ice a foot thick on the water shown here. In very few other places will you find this kind of contrast.
- Pros:A very nice place, with just the right mix of city and country life
- Cons:The state is thinly populated, driving from one town to the next can take a while
- In a nutshell:Where Chicago people go to get away from it all
