Wisconsin is a beautiful and diverse state in USA’s Midwest. It’s a popular holiday destination for people in this region due to its unspoiled nature, abundant lakes and waterways and towns and cities to the south. On holiday at Wisconsin vacation accommodation you’ll be able to choose between the vibrant south, with its major cities, and wild north, home to large expanses of wilderness.
The largest city in the state is Milwaukee, which sits on the shore of Lake Michigan, and features a number of interesting sights and attractions. One of the most recognisable landmarks is the Milwaukee Art Museum, with its iconic Quadracci Pavilion. The city has long been associated with its beer industry – Miller and Coors are located here, and you’ll be able to take a tour of this famous brewery. Should you choose this city as a base for a Wisconsin vacation rental, there are also plenty of smaller operations to seek out, with microbreweries and brewpubs, in a place known affectionately as the “Brew City”.
Away from Lake Michigan, one of the best locations for a family holiday at Wisconsin self-catering accommodation would be Wisconsin Dells. This is due to the numerous high profile attractions found locally. In fact, the city is billed as the “Waterpark Capital of the World”, with indoor and outdoor water-oriented attractions. Here there’s Chula Vista, Mount Olympus and Noah’s Ark, all three of which offer a wealth of pools and flumes for all the family. There are also a number of mini golf centres to be found in and around this popular destination.
If you want an adventure-filled outdoor holiday, then Door County would be an ideal spot for a vacation rental in Wisconsin. The Peninsula State Park offers stunning lakeside scenery, with wonderful beaches and activities like camping, sea kayaking, hiking and mountain biking.
The north is worth exploring if you’d like to experience the state’s large expanses of nature. The Chequamegon –Nicolet National Forest would be a good destination for a Wisconsin vacation rental, with hiking, cross-country skiing, fishing and mountain biking on offer here. Species in the park include deer, black bears, elk and wild turkeys.
Covering a large area, the state has a varied climate, although it all falls within a humid continental bracket. From June to September there’s lots of warm weather, while winters are consistently cold throughout the state, with lows slipping below freezing from December to March.
Generally speaking, the best way to reach self-catering accommodation in Wisconsin from the UK, would be to fly from London-Heathrow (LHR) to Chicago O’Hare (ORD) with American Airlines, British Airways or United Airlines and then connecting to Milwaukee (MKE) with American Eagle.
