the great lakes state
Home to over 15,000 lakes, the land that we now call Wisconsin was once covered in glaciers. Archeologists in Wisconsin found 14,500 year old mammoth bones that were once used as human tools, showing that human life existed on this continent much earlier than originally predicted. Today, Wisconsin is famous for its fishing and scenic bluffs that overlook its many bodies of water. You can visit the Lake Michigan and Lake Superior shoreline in Wisconsin to get a taste of the beach in the heart of the midwest.
