Things to do in Wisconsin

No matter the season, there are always things to do in Wisconsin. In warmer months, the outdoors take center stage, with activities such as boating and fishing around the Great Lakes, cruises around the Apostle Islands, and hiking and camping in the national parks. For some kitschy outdoor fun, head to the iconic Wisconsin Dells—home to 21 water parks, mini-golf, water-skiing shows and more—or Dr. Evermor's Sculpture Park, a sprawling field full of futuristic creatures and structures made from scrap-metal and salvaged materials.

Known for its quaint towns and lively festivals and events (including the Fish Boil), Door Country has also become a big tourist draw in the last few years. In the urban centers, meanwhile, you'll find a unique array of museums and cultural centers, as well as plenty to eat and drink. In Milwaukee, don't miss the Harley-Davidson Museum, which pays homage to the bike brand (founded here) with interactive exhibits, and the Milwaukee Art Museum, home to folk and outsider art galleries, a notable Georgia O'Keefe collection, and a gorgeous section designed by Santiago Calatrava. Also in Milwaukee: the Miller Brewing Company, which offers free tours—and full-sized samples.
