Madison is nice, but Milwaukee is great too! Lots of museums and the lake. Plus Summerfest, State fair and a summer full of festivals of every kind!
I'm from Wisconsin. I get the same reaction when I tell people I love Wisconsin..
I don't know what part of the state you're from, but I've been to Madison and the surrounding area twice and absolutely LOVED it.
I grew up near Milwaukee, went to college in Eau Claire, and now live in Madison. They are all wonderful cities, for very different reasons.
DF and I live in Chicago, and we're planning to honeymoon in New Glarus, WI. We've wanted to go for awhile, and since nobody's offered to sponsor two weeks in the Bahamas (
), we figured it was the perfect opportunity. We're both looking forward to eating a lot of cheese, drinking a lot of Spotted Cow, and exploring the town. It hasn't really come up in conversation yet, but I'm curious about what sort of reactions we'll get, though I expect my family to disappoint me by being completely supportive.
