Wisconsin may be famous for its dairy exports and spirited urban centers, Milwaukee and Madison, but the Badger State has so much more to offer off the beaten path. This summer is the perfect time to round up some family or friends, pack up your car, and explore somewhere new and intriguing in the beautiful state of Wisconsin.
Devil’s Lake State Park
This largest state park is a gem for any outdoor recreationist. Located conveniently close to Baraboo, Devil’s Lake provides ample opportunities for hiking, biking, camping, swimming, fishing, and above all, rock climbing and bouldering for all levels.
Apostle Islands National Lakeshore
The Apostle Islands are perhaps the crown jewel of the national lakeshore system. With a total of 21 wooded islands dotting the idyllic, rocky shoreline of Lake Superior, the possibilities for exploring the area by kayak are endless. When it comes to this spot, however, pictures really are worth one thousand words, which just cannot do the Apostle Islands justice.
Dr. Evermor’s Sculpture Park
As far as art galleries go, Dr. Evermor’s is among the quirkiest and most fascinating in the world. Designed entirely by one artist, this park is a veritable scrap-metal metropolis, featuring the largest scrap-metal sculpture in the world. It is absolutely worth a visit — plus, you have the possibility of running into the artist himself!
