This state’s geography is varied from the beautiful lakeshores along Michigan and Superior to its river valley central region and its heavily forested northlands.
The state’s largest tourist attraction is the Wisconsin Dells. Just off of I-94 in the centre of the state, this area of soaring sandstone cliffs and peaceful fern gullies has been transformed into a beautiful giant amusement park. Here you can enjoy a relaxing stay in a cabin or resort on one of the area’s numerous lakes, or go to Noah’s Ark, one of the largest and most thrilling water parks in the world.

This resort is great for cross country skiing during the winter, horseback riding, mountain biking and hiking during the summer, golfing, and down on the lake, some great sailing.

Near the city Spring Green you will find the architect’s home and forever work in progress, Taliesin.

About an hour southwest from La Crosse is a geographical curiosity, the Wisconsin Driftless Area. Near the pleasant town of Viroqua, this stunning area of steep, deep gullies, rocky hills and woods got its unique topography from being missed by the glaciers of the last four Ice Ages. This land of winding roads and pleasant small towns is also the heart of the Midwest’s Amish Country. While you are enjoying a ride through the pleasant hills you are likely to pass a horse and buggy on the way.
