When to Go to Wisconsin
Wisconsin has something to do for all seasons, so when you decide to visit depends on your temperature preferences—and threshold. Winters can reach below-zero temps, making those the months for hanging out in breweries or museums, or cold-weather adventure sports like snowmobiling; you'll also generally find lower hotel rates at this time. Summer is the peak season for travel to Wisconsin, particularly near the Great Lakes and national parks.
