AUTUMN IN WISCONSIN®

When Wisconsin weather turns from warm to crisp, it brings with it a changing landscape that’s nothing less than magical to those who live here. As the different shades of red, brown and orange descend upon our state, many Wisconsin natives fall in love all over again with their favorite season.

What makes it a resident favorite? More apple orchards than one can count, cozy supper clubs with Old Fashioneds practically by the barrel, and the genuine comfort of a warm sweater and crackling bonfire after a brisk hike through the forest. From pumpkin patches and corn mazes to scenic drives and the first signs of light snowfall, fall in Wisconsin is a favorite for many reasons that are waiting to be discovered.

“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.”
