When you think of Wisconsin and wanting to find an inn by city, most might think of some of the more densely populated, bigger cities that are well known across the nation. We have our largest city in the state, Milwaukee, located on the shores of Lake Michigan. Milwaukee is known for its cultural diversity, vibrant city life, cultural activities, funky festivals and of course, beer. Nearby to Milwaukee and also located in Southeast Wisconsin is Kenosha, Racine and Waukesha (the fourth, fifth and seventh largest cities respectively). That makes this area the population center and most developed in the state with much to see and do. That brings us to Madison, our beautiful capital located on the shores of Lake Mendota and Monona, and home of the UWM Badgers! Of course, we think everyone has heard of Green Bay, home of the Lambeau Field and the Packers.
Other well known, but slightly smaller cities, include La Crosse, a gateway city on the mighty Mississippi River in Western Wisconsin. The city of Appleton is located in Northeastern Wisconsin on the Fox River. Appleton has a vibrant shopping and music scene in addition to its many outdoor recreational opportunties. To the south of Appleton, located where the Fox River enters Lake Winnebego to the west, is Oshkosh. Oshkosh is known for its many events and festivals, including the EAA AirVenture, The World’s Greatest Aviation Celebration®. Also among our smaller but well noted cities is Eau Claire/Chippewa Falls in the west-central part of Wisconsin, filled with natural beauty and many experiences to be sought.
As you can see, we have fantastic cities in Wisconsin. Find an inn by city, sure! But if your scene is the smaller cities, towns or villages, then Wisconsin has many to visit and explore. How about Wisconsin Dells, the "Water Capital of the World". Or nearby Baraboo, home of the Circus World Museum and the most popular state park in the state, Devils Lake State Park. Located directly on Lake Michigan, Manitowoc takes pride in their beautiful scenery and lakefront, including the Mariners Trail. This trail stretches 13 miles on the lake from Manitowoc to beautiful Two Rivers. Speaking of beautiful, Wausau in Central Wisconsin boasts Granite Park Ski Area and a culturally rich downtown. Fun is always brewing in the St. Croix river town of Hudson, Wisconsin. Therefore, you can stroll the streets of their quaint downtown and find amazing restaurants and unique shops.
Sometimes, you just want to go the road less traveled. So find the back roads and Rustic Roads of Wisconsin and meander your way throught the state and simply discover. The quaint villages, rural areas, and numerous forests may beckon you and we have you covered here too.
There are many more cities, towns and villages to explore throughout the state. They all offer diverse scenery, activities, and adventures. In Wisconsin, put it on your bucket-list and find an inn by city to try and explore all parts of our beautiful state. Our Wisconsin Bed and Breakfast Association Innkeepers will help you make the most of the area that you are in!
