Despite all the water, 46% of Wisconsin's land area is covered by forest and Wisconsin's legacy of environmental responsibility traces back more than a century. Areas like the distinctive Door Peninsula, which extends off the eastern coast of the state, enchants visitors with its 300 miles of shoreline, five state parks, cherry and apple orchards and artist colonies.
Wisconsin’s economy originally was based on farming, largely diary, and Wisconsin is still referred to today as America’s Dairyland. Wisconsin produces more dairy products than any other state in the United States except California and leads the nation in cheese production – hence the endearing term for Wisconsinites of Cheesehead! And yes, they do put cheese on everything!
History, culture and the arts are also abundant and cities like Milwaukee, Madison, and Green Bay must make the short-list for any holiday to Wisconsin.
