6 Unexpected Wisconsin Island Escapes To Take This Summer

Folks outside of the Midwest tend to overlook the Great Lakes when thinking about beaches, sand, water sports and more, but we here in Wisconsin know that those two amazing lakes give us some of the most beautiful, natural spots in the whole state.

Even still, we don’t exactly think of ourselves as home to many island getaways – but maybe we should. Here are a few spots to escape the hustle and bustle of the mainland and switch over to a different pace of life.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
