THE BEST PLACE TO BE? IN WISCONSIN®

One thing Wisconsin’s regions all have in common is how unique they are. Every community in Wisconsin holds its own individual charm and characteristics, making our state one of the best options for those looking to live and work in a place that fits their lifestyle.

Hunters and fishers find happiness and sport within recreational playgrounds of forests, streams and lakes while outdoor fitness enthusiasts bike and hike the trails that are woven throughout our landscape. Families make memories at one of our many public parks, festivals and community events while ambitious doers take advantage of our superior education—from advancing science and technology programs to trade apprenticeships. Others embrace the city life, where days full of the busy shuffle of ambitious ideas turn to nights of dining and laughter at one of the best restaurants in the Midwest. Regardless of what you’re looking for, one of our safe, vibrant neighborhoods is a good place to start being more you.​

MY WISCONSIN STORY

Our residents are some of the happiest and most ambitious people in the nation—but don’t just take our word for it. Take theirs.

“If this (game development with his current company) is going to happen – it needs to happen in Wisconsin. The state has a strong engineering background and strong education background, but also a strong artistic background. Wisconsin brings the best of these unique backgrounds together.”

“Living in Austin (Texas) was getting to be too expensive. There are a lot of opportunities in Wausau with major companies. We took promotions when we moved here. And the commute times are shorter so I get more time with my family.”
