Nestled next to the Great Lakes, Wisconsin is known across the nation for its famous cheese industry. Though the state is known as America's Dairyland, its farmers also produce the nation's largest supply of cranberries and ginseng in rural agricultural communities throughout the state.

Beyond agriculture, Wisconsin's biggest industries include healthcare and manufacturing. Its biggest cities include Milwaukee, Madison, and Green Bay, to name a few.

Lakes, forests, valleys, and rolling hills interrupt Wisconsin's sprawling farmlands and provide plenty of opportunities for outdoor recreation.
