So, true confessions: prior to 2010, I had never set foot in or even passed through the state of Wisconsin. I stand (rather, sit) before you chastened and convinced that Wisconsin is absolutely a must-visit state, and I’ve even harbored dreams of a vacation home there. However, my husband rightly reminds me that we already know someone with a getaway in Wisconsin, so we’ll select elsewhere when we start entering and subsequently win the lottery.
My sister is fortunate on a number of levels to date a truly and exceptionally nice guy whose family happens to have several houses on the Chain O’ Lakes (yeah, that’s O’ Lakes, not of) clustered in and around Waupaca, Wisconsin. For two years in a row we’ve ventured up on a family vacation with them in August which has numerous food and non-food related merits, not the least of which is the fact that temperatures range from the upper 60s to low 80s throughout our sojourn, while hovering in the triple digits back home in Arkansas.

Looks beautiful! So glad you had a great time with your family!
i love the mid-west 🙂 the little bits of wisconsin i’ve seen have been beautiful, and your post is encouraging to make the road trip back! glad you had such a great time.
I LOVE Spotted Cow beer. My brother from Chicago travels through WI often and discovered New Glarus Brewing. He then introduced me.
Isn’t it good? Plus, I have to say – that’s a good brother. 🙂
