The Amateur Traveler talks to Christine who comes to tell us that Wisconsin has more to offer than just visiting my relatives.
She starts us on a tour of the state from the college town and capital of Madison with its street fairs, concerts, and capitol building. We hear about the influence of Wisconsin born architect Frank Lloyd Wright who founded his school of architecture at nearby Taliesin. We enjoy the bike paths, breweries, Badgers football, and burial mounds.
Then we move on to Milwaukee with its neighborhoods, breweries, and of course baseball. We stop in Kohler and then head up Wisconsin’s “thumb” to Door County.
After visiting Green Bay and the home of the Packers we head up to the north woods with its many small lakes and Lake Superior with its one very big one.
We wrap up by winding down the Mississippi River.
Think there is nothing to see in Wisconsin? Think again.
