Wisconsin State Capitol

Wisconsin is located in the northern United States and is bordered by Lake Michigan and Lake Superior, two of the five Great Lakes. Wisconsin is a large producer of milk and cheese and is sometimes called “America’s Dairyland.” Wisconsin is also a large producer of beer, with several major brewing companies located in the state.

Madison is the capital of Wisconsin and the second-largest city in the state. It is located in the southern part of the state and is surrounded by four lakes where residents enjoy swimming, boating, and camping. Other favorite outdoor activities include enjoying concerts and performances in the city’s parks and gardens in the summer and attending University of Wisconsin–Madison football games in the fall and early winter.

Green Bay is located on Lake Michigan, on Wisconsin’s eastern coast. Green Bay is known for its professional football team, the Green Bay Packers, which has won the most NFL World Championships and the 2011 Super Bowl. Local attractions include the Bay of Green Bay and golf courses, shops, museums, and arts venues throughout the city.

Milwaukee is the largest city in Wisconsin. Located on the southeastern coast of the state, Milwaukee provides easy access to Lake Michigan for boating and water sports. Milwaukee is most famous for the large number of brewing companies in the area. Many breweries offer tours, tastings, and other special events throughout the year.

Real estate in Wisconsin includes single-family homes, townhouses and apartments, lakefront and bay front property, and land for agricultural use. New neighborhoods in suburban areas just outside the cities are some of the fastest-growing areas in the state.
