Wisconsin

Wisconsin is located in north central United States. It is bordered by Lake Superior on the north, Lake Michigan on the east, the state of Michigan on the northeast, the states of Iowa and Minnesota on the west and the state of Illinois on the south. The capital city of Wisconsin is Madison and the largest city is Milwaukee.
The state is 65, 499 square miles in size. More than 1,800 square miles is comprised of inland water (Wisconsin has more than 14,000 lakes) and more than 14,000 acres is in forest growth.
More than 5 million people live in Wisconsin and a good number of them like ice-cream, judging from the report that they eat nearly 21 million gallons of ice-cream each year. In fact, the first ice-cream sundae ever concocted was in Two Rivers, Wisconsin in 1881.
Nicknamed the Cheese Capital of the Nation (production is 2.5 billion annually), the state's landscape of rolling plains is conducive to growing feed for a successful dairy and cheese industry. However, manufacturing of heavy equipment and machinery is the Wisconsin's biggest source of income. Tourism is second.
Attractions in Wisconsin include dozens of historical museums, fine art galleries, lots of local and state festivals and with more than 100,000 miles of roads, plenty of natural sightseeing avenues.
Weather is seasonal, with long cold winters and short hot summers. In the northern region, even July temperatures can drop to a frosty level when night falls. Rainfall can get heavy in the spring, and southern thunderstorms can develop into tornadoes in spring and summer.
Liberace, Gene Wilder, Orson Wells and Spencer Tracy are just a few famous people that called Wisconsin home.
