Summer Isn’t Over for Wisconsin

Don’t let your summer fill up. Plan a WI vacation and get it on the calendar before it is too late. With all the fun that is in store, it is no wonder that vacation properties are the new trend. Take the entire family or opt for a peaceful getaway. Settle into a cabin, cottage, or vacation home and enjoy the outdoors. Enjoy a nature walk through one of the many state parks, head out to the nearest lake/river, and end each day watching the sunset.

This August, think about visiting one of WI’s fairs or festivals.
