Renting A Cottage In Wisconsin
Known for its Great Lakes, small towns, cheese, microbrews, forests, football and festivals, beautiful Wisconsin makes the perfect cottaging getaway.
Wisconsin is located in the north-central region of the United States, between the Great Lakes and the Mississippi River. According to their Department of Tourism, tourism is considered the third largest industry in the state. Indeed, it's no surprise that Wisconsin is such a popular tourist destination. Visitors flock from all over the country for the popular family attractions in the Wisconsin Dells area. Others flock to the myriad resorts in the northern part of the state.
Door County, in the Door Peninsula, is one of Wisconsin's most famous natural attractions. It's also a major tourist destination because of its charming villages, famous "fish boils," and cherry picking. Cottagers can enjoy boating among the many natural bays, harbours and ports off the Lake Michigan and Green Bay shores of the peninsula, where the county resides.
On rainy days, cottagers can enjoy the Milwaukee Art Museum, which has 20,000 works (ancient through to contemporary) on exhibit, and is one of only a few places in the US that houses the work of architect Santiago Calatrava. Music lovers can also enjoy the Madison Symphony Orchestra, which performs September through May, as well as the Madison Ballet and the Madison Opera. Of course, there's always the Harley-Davidson Museum, and the famous Spring Green's House on the Rock, Baraboo's Circus World Museum, and more.
The summer in Wisconsin is ripe with exciting outdoor cultural activities. Cottage renters may consider renting near the American Players Theatre in Spring Green to catch their summer line-up. The Peninsula Players and American Folklore Theater are also well-known for their great comedies and tragedies. And cottagers can find a wide variety of plays, lectures, musicals, concerts, and more, at Northern Wisconsin's Lake Superior Big Top Chautauqua. Other famous festivals include Summerfest, Northern Wisconsin Metalfest, and the EAA Oshkosh Airshow.
Of course, cottagers, in particular, flock to Wisconsin to enjoy the fabulous water recreation - care of Wisconsin's many lakes and rivers.
