Why You Should Take a Trip To Southeast Wisconsin For Your Next Getaway

Posted: Tue-Jul-2021

The Southeast Region of Wisconsin offers travelers incredible natural beauty and contrast. From Milwaukee, Wisconsin’s largest city, and clear up and down the shore, long stretches of Lake Michigan shoreline stir the imagination and coax one to retreat and wander the beaches. When the glacier moved diagonally through our beautiful state some 10,000 years ago, it gifted Southeast Wisconsin with a myriad of rich resources. Our lakes, dramatic valleys, and high, forested moraines have delighted eager tourists for more than 100 years.

Explore Southeast Wisconsin

Milwaukee has long been knowns for its cultural and ethnic diversity. Also impressive of the city is a strong collective support for the arts, hence the continued abundance of live theater, musical productions, ethnic festivals, and Summerfest, the world’s largest music festival.

Moving on to just east of Plymouth, the Northern Kettle Moraine State Forest begins in Glen Beulah and runs south down to Kewaskum. Not surprisingly, this magnificent state park is a major destination for many, with over 200 miles of hiking, nature, horseback riding and cross-country ski trails available.

Over in Eagle, Old World Wisconsin is a living history museum which honors the pioneers who settled Wisconsin. Fifty-five historic structures remind us of pioneers. Also nearby to Eagle is the Southern Kettle Moraine State Forest, with more than 150 miles of hiking, biking, and cross-country ski trails for year around enjoyment.
