Guides to Wisconsin

No state in the union cuts the cheese quite like Wisconsin (sorry, we just couldn't resist). After all, some call it the Cheese Capital of the Nation. Others call it America's Dairyland. Its official nickname is the Badger State, and not because of some furry little critters plaguing their bipedal neighbors. The name derives from early miners in the region who burrowed out holes in the hills for their residences. Fear not, accommodations have come a long way since then. Along with above-ground housing, Wisconsin has developed an impressively productive agricultural economy, as well as voluminous heavy industries centered around Milwaukee and along the shores of Lake Michigan.

Most of the rolling plains of the Badger State are dedicated to growing crops and fodder for the dairy industry. And there are cows everywhere. The northern portions of the state are predominantly forested and home to thousands of lakes, and a labyrinth of interconnected streams and rivers to challenge the angler and paddler in us all. But all this talk about industry and recreational opportunities is totally overshadowed by one great Wisconsin characteristic. The one thing that everyone thinks of whenever the subject of Wisconsin arises is ... cheese. Cheese is the bees knees in that northern deep freeze. Wisconsin, it's the cheesiest.
