Wisconsin is not just known for it’s incredible artisan cheeses. This sweet north-central state has that little something special for everyone in the family - especially kids!

Zoos, water parks, festivals, museums, outdoor adventures and indoor fun - you will find it all in the birthplace of the Ice Cream Sundae (signs of a great state!)  Make friends with animals of all sizes, from the giants at Milwaukee County Zoo, to the smaller at Mulberry Lane Petting Farm.

Museums range from the interactive Northwoods Children’s Museum, to the fun Circus World Museum. Transport, art and history museums are waiting too!  History more your thing?
