Wisconsin takes pride in a lot of wonderful things aside from their world-renowned cheese and other dairy products. The state’s tourism and business industries are also thriving. With countless scenic spots and IT and manufacturing companies aggressively expanding, it’s no wonder that more and more tourists and businesspeople are frequenting the state.
If you’re planning to visit Wisconsin either for business or pleasure, here are some of the activities and places you can visit during your stay.
Sight-seeing at the Devil’s Lake State Park
Devil’s Lake state park earned that name for a particular reason -- it has a 500-foot russet bluff around the 360-acre lake. During summer, you can expect a huge crowd forming in the park and the white, sandy beach near the lake. You can sunbathe to your heart’s content or climb up the stair-like trail all the way to the bluffs.
If you want to see the park’s slick quartzite, you can climb the bluffs together with the rock climbers. If you want to enjoy the site with less people around, come here during weekdays and trek up the Eastern Bluff. There, you can see a few of the major rock formations of the park, including the Devil’s Doorway and the Balanced Rock.
Enjoy a game day at Lambeau Field
Home to the NFL’s Green Bay Packers, Lambeau Field is a must-see destination for any football fan. If you can snag a plane ticket in time for the game that night, all the better. However, if you can’t, don’t worry. You can still enjoy the stadium by visiting the Packers Hall of Fame. A stadium tour will give you a chance to walk through the tunnel football players use to get on the game field. You will also get to see the hidden suites inside the stadium.
Marvel at Taliesin’s amazing architecture
Your Wisconsin escapade won’t be complete until you get to visit Frank Lloyd Wright’s The Spring Green home. This home, considered the great architect’s studio, shows the distinctive and awe-inspiring Prairie-style architecture of Wright. It also shows the home’s dark history -- a series of fires and a murder spree committed by Wright’s servants. Today, this building is still used as a school for those who want study Architecture. The administration office is also somewhere within the building.
Stroll at Door County
Door County earned the reputation of being The Cape Cod of the Midwest. Door County will never run out of activities or events to offer its visitors. With over 15 county parks, five state parks, and a 300-mile shoreline, outdoor lovers will always have something fun to do. You can experience fine dining at the local restaurants, try wine tasting in the wineries, or go on a romantic getaway at the county’s quaint inns and bed and breakfasts. And you should never leave town without trying Door County’s classics -- fish boil and handpicked apples and cherries. If you want to unleash your adventurous side, you can visit the Peninsula State Park and head up to the Niagara Escarpment to enjoy the magnificent views of the bay.
Enjoy a coworking space in Madison
If you need a temporary office while you’re touring Wisconsin, you can also take advantage of downtown Madison’s shared workspace areas. Here, you can have the privacy and the office environment you need to work on your reports, hold staff meetings, conduct training, or just collaborate with your local Wisconsin team. You can still enjoy sight-seeing downtown as these coworking hubs are usually situated in the downtown areas. You can rent it on a monthly basis. You get to truly mix business with pleasure if you can bring your workspace with you on your vacation.
There are plenty of activities and places to enjoy in Wisconsin. No matter where you go, the most important thing is to enjoy and savor the moment. Whether it’s for work or pleasure, or both; finding something enjoyable, exciting, and convenient makes the trip totally worth it.
