Exploring Wisconsin

This week I’m going to be doing something a bit different. I’m going to spend it exploring my home state of Wisconsin.

Usually, when I’m in Wisconsin I’m here to relax and catch up on work. Like most people, I’ve never visited many of the significant things in my state because I felt like it was always something I could do. I’ve seen this time and time again all over the world. Locals never visit attractions they live next to. I’ve met people who have lived their whole life in New York, for example, and have never been to the Statue of Liberty.

This week I am going to rectify that problem by driving around the state for five days.

Monday, I’m starting in Green Bay, which is only about 25 miles from where I grew up. I’ll be taking a tour of Lambeau Field as well as visiting the Packer Hall of Fame.

Tuesday, I’ll be in Milwaukee to visit the Harley-Davidson Museum, do a brewery tour, watch the wings on the art museum close, and attend a Brewers game.

Wednesday, I’ll be heading to the capital of Madison to take a tour of the capital building and visit some of the Frank Lloyd Wright homes in the area and his studio Spring Green: Taliesin. (they will probably be put on the world heritage list in a few years).

Thursday I’ll be in LaCrosse and driving up the east side of the Mississippi River, taking photos of the bluffs.

Friday, I’ll be finishing the trip by heading to the north woods to the town of Cable.

I’m excited to do this and to share a region that most people know little about. You can follow along on Google+ and I’ll also be posting images to Facebook and Instagram.

Let me know your favorite thing to see or do in Wisconsin!
