SUMMER IN WISCONSIN
Maybe it’s the taste of juicy, organic fruit straight from a farmer’s stand or the live music that beats throughout parks and outdoor venues from June through August, but summer is sweeter here. Home to the world’s largest music festival, water capital of the world and many state parks, trails and recreation areas, Wisconsin is a place where summer fun is summer livin’.
Our favorite ways to enjoy Wisconsin summer include zipping around on a speedboat on one of our many freshwater lakes with friends in tow, soaking in the sun on our Great Lakes beaches with a locally brewed beer in hand and toasting marshmallows around a campfire while the stars glimmer brightly and clearly above us. Whether it’s splashing a paddle in the Wisconsin River, biking through one of our state parks or simply taking in the serenity of a Northwoods silent forest, there’s something here for everyone. Summer entertainment is so endless that you’ll find yourself wishing you had more than a few months to take in Wisconsin summer, and with any luck, you will.
