Lake Michigan is spectacular. If you don’t live near it, make sure you take the time to drive east to spend a day on the lake at some point. Devil’s Lake State Park was my favorite place when we were living between the Dells and Madison. It is a beautiful lake with great hiking trails. I highly recommend visiting during the week to avoid crowds. Check out the entire Wisconsin State Park System here.
I still remember visiting Old World Wisconsin from my childhood. It brings to life the village and farm life of European settlers. If you are looking for more modern history, visit the Wisconsin State Capitol in Madison which is open to the public for free tours.
