The Tourist Attractions in Wisconsin:
The capital of Wisconsin is Madison. This is a relatively small city, but vibrant and attractive all the same. The State Capitol Building was modeled on the White House and was built in 1912 after the previous state capitol burnt down. Visitors can take tours of the building and during the summer months there is an observation deck open to visitors for great views.
From Wisconsin State Capitol runs State Street, the cultural centre of Madison. Restaurants, museums, shops, bars and more line this street. Other attractions in Madison include the Olbrich Botanical Gardens, the Governor’s Mansion, and Henry Vilas Zoo.
The largest cist in Wisconsin is Milwaukee, and is situated on the shores of Lake Michigan. As the 22nd largest city in the States there is quite a lot to see here, including historic architecture, museums and more. Amongst these is the striking Milwaukee Art Museum, and in stark contrast is the St Josaphat Basilica, built by and for the Polish community of the city.
Visitors interested in beers will find Milwaukee is home to several breweries where you can take tours, and during the summer, boat tours of Milwaukee River, the harbour and Lake Michigan are popular.
