15 Things You Really Have To Do In Wisconsin This Summer
It’s summer in Wisconsin, which means–kids or not–you’ll be itching to get out of the house and explore our great state. There are wonderfully exciting things to do in Wisconsin no matter what the season, but here are fifteen things you’ll want to explore this summer:
1. Nothing says summer like a trip to the zoo. The state's best is the Milwaukee County Zoo (Milwaukee).
2. Bristol Renaissance Faire (Kenosha) is a whole lot of fun for families, friends and couples.
3. If you love music, you need to get over to Summerfest (Milwaukee).
4. What other amusement park can you go on rides for pennies? Head over to Bay Beach (Green Bay) with the whole family.
5. If you've never been to the Wisconsin State Fair (West Allis), you don't deserve to be called a Wisconsinite. Eat a cream puff for me!
6. Lake Geneva can get crowded in the summer, but there's a reason that so many people flock here each year: it's beautiful.
7. If you have kids (or are a kid at heart), you should go to The Farm (Sturgeon Bay).
8. My favorite way to enjoy the copious lakes in Wisconsin is to head out on a jet ski.
9. If it's summer in Wisconsin, you definitely need to enjoy great ice cream outside. My best bet: Zesty's (De Pere).
10. If you're a Green Bay Packers fan, you need to attend at least one Packers Family Night (Green Bay).
11. This year, instead of heading straight to the parks, head over to the actual Wisconsin Dells and go hiking.
12. There's really nothing better than eating a strawberry, freshly picked and warmed by the sun.
13. It's Wisconsin, and it's summer. Do I really need to tell you to go camping?
14. If you love planes, you are going to LOVE EAA Airventure (Oshkosh).
15. He's been one of the most polarizing characters in Wisconsin, but Brett Favre put Green Bay (and Wisconsin) back on the map. If you can score a ticket (they all sold out), come witness Brett Favre's Hall of Fame Ceremony.
These are the things I’m planning on doing in Wisconsin this summer. What about you?
