Wisconsin National and State Parks, Lakes, and Historical Sites

With coastlines on both Lake Michigan and Lake Superior, Wisconsin draws nature lovers who enjoy plentiful lakes, wooded forests, and coastal views. There are also more than 15,000 inland lakes and the Mississippi River to explore. Take a drive down the Wisconsin portion of the scenic Great River Road and then follow the Lower Wisconsin State Riverway. Madison is the capital city with its own lakefront convention center and domed capitol building built in a neoclassical style. Visit Milwaukee during Summerfest to visit the city on a Great Lake with architecture that has a heavily French influenced architecture.
