Things to do in Wisconsin

If you’re sitting in your hotel wondering what to do in Wisconsin, then you need to get out there and just take a walk around—there is so much to see and do. Even if you don’t really want to do a whole lot of walking, you could always lounge by the pool or relax by one of the many rivers or lakes. There are also some really great beaches, too. If you’re not the outdoorsy kind of person then take a walk through some of the museums and historical homes and villages that Wisconsin has offer.

While visiting the area you should definitely stop at the Milwaukee Public Museum. This museum will take you from prehistoric times up to present-day Wisconsin. If you’re a history buff, then you must check out the Hoard Historical Museum, here you will be able to learn more about the history of the area and how they became a state.

There are plenty things to do if you’re visiting with the whole family. Wisconsin is family friendly and has many things the kids will love. Travelers can visit the Milwaukee County Zoo, which has over 200 exotic animals. Any person, no matter their age loves to go to the beach, and Wisconsin has some lovely beaches that are open in the summer months. Lake Michigan and Lake Superior are a must see. During the summer months, life guards patrol the beaches.
