Wisconsin is a gorgeous state, where almost every place is beautiful. While a few areas (I’m looking at you, Wisconsin Dells) have been spoiled by over development, most of the state retains its natural beauty, making it the perfect place for a weekend road trip.

The Apostle Islands and Lake Superior’s South Shore
The Saint Croix Valley
The Saint Croix River begins in Wisconsin, with the southern portion marking the boundary between Minnesota and Wisconsin. Both sides are lovely, although I’m more often found exploring the parks on the Minnesota side.
Hudson sits just across the river from the MSP (Minneapolis/Saint Paul) metro area, but it has an identity and culture all its own.
