Best Time to Visit Wisconsin

Wisconsin is much more than just livestock, milk and beer. Wisconsin has a diversified set of landscapes and travel attractions: water sports and beach life (Wisconsin is bordered by the Michigan Lake and the Superior Lake and has around 15000 small lakes); city entertainment, nightlife, cultural life and  other city attractions in places as Madison or Milwaukee; snow-sports, waterfalls, lakes for fishing, camping, swimming and boating in largely pristine and wild regions (such as the Bayfield Peninsula and the Apostle Islands); indoor entertainment sites like the House on the Rock (in Spring Green) or the National Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame and Museum (in Hayward, near Bayfield).

Milwaukee and Madison are great destinations for entertainment, animation, nightlife or cultural life.

The Apostle Islands is a largely pristine area, excellent for snow-sports and outdoor activities.

Door County has excellent resorts.

Spring Green, near Madison (a vibrant college town), offers the nowadays major travel attraction in Wisconsin: the House on the Rock and some top architectural examples of Frank Lloyds work.


If you want to privilege animation, sea life and sports, then summer, late spring and early all are the right time to visit Wisconsin.

If you just take into account the weather, autumn or late spring - with their agreeable and warm days and temperatures - are excellent times to visit Wisconsin.  

Great Lakes' winters are severe, with occasional snowstorms and intense rainfalls, and Wisconsin's winters don't escape to the rule. Snowstorms and ice storms are common in December, January and February. 


You may want to avoid the winter months, when temperatures reach very low levels and the occasional snowstorms strike Wisconsin.

If you want to bet in low accommodation rates, then July and August aren't good months. Besides, humidity and high temperatures may also turn some days of July and August very uncomfortable in southern and central Wisconsin.
