Wisconsin, United States
The State of Wisconsin Nov 13, 2009
My visits to the State of Wisconsin began in the year 2001 when my daughter and I first shared a Christmas holiday with my girlfriend Jackie and her family in Cedarburg. Located in the north-central United States, Wisconsin is considered part of the Midwest. It is bordered to the west by Minnesota, Iowa to the southwest, Illinois to the south, Lake Michigan to the east, Michigan to the northeast, and to the north by Lake Superior.
I returned to Wisconsin again in 2008 and 2009 visiting the different towns mainly in the southwest like Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Menomonee Falls, Madison, to mention but a few.
Things to do in Wisconsin:
Lake Geneva: The city is Lake Geneva, the lake is Geneva Lake.
Madison: In as much as Milwaukee is popular, it is not the state capital of Wisconsin, Madison is. If you love architecture, history and art, you will find that Madison is quite simply a beautiful town to visit. This majestic Roman Renaissance-style town is built with the only granite dome in the whole of the United States and has a little over 40 different stone types from around the world. Hand made furniture and great murals decorate it. There is an observation deck, open in the summer giving visitors and residents alike a great view of the surrounding lakes. The Capitol Square plays host to state events throughout the year including Farmers Markets and Folk Festivals. I should like to return sometime with my camera in hand.
Milwaukee: Charles Allis Art Museum and Milwaukee Market (great places). Located in a cozy part of Milwaukee the Charles Allis Art museum is art treat with amazing treasures including an original "Winslow Homer" painting! A historic mansion built in 1911, now a museum filled with art treasures spanning 2,000 years. There is also a Zoo and children’s museum for families.
The night life in Milwaukee is supposedly great but I have not gone out partying at night in Milwaukee. I had an awesome dinner at my friends Jim and Joy’s residence at the loft.
