Wisconsin’s Cheesy Obsession Is The Key To Long Life

We here in Wisconsin consume more cheese than most. We have access to myriad flavors and varieties, and it’s fresh from the dairy and at our fingertips. We have better cheese in our gas stations than most people have in their nicest grocery stores. For a long time, doctors have warned against enjoying too much of our state’s favorite food. Others have mocked Wisconsinites, saying we’re too enamored of fatty dairy foods and that will lead to our downfall. But no longer, friends. It turns out we were just way smarter than anyone gave us credit for. In fact, cheese just may be the key to long 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/
