Put simply, Wisconsin is for lovers. The state’s midwestern cultural flair attracts passionate beer enthusiasts, sports fans, and foodies from all over the country. Its impressive landscape of farms, woodlands, and glacial lakes brings in droves of amorous kayakers, hikers, and scuba divers each year. And sprinkled among Wisconsin’s peaceful countryside are dozens of charming towns and revived urban centers, each one beckoning to be explored.

Get lost together among the trails of one of many state parks, hiking or mountain biking your way past historical farmhouses, log cabins, lighthouses and waterways. Spend a day relaxing on a sandy beach, go golfing, or admire the hundreds of bird species found in the state. Go apple picking in autumn, browse a farmers market in summer, and visit cheese factories and wineries all year long. Don’t forget that there’s plenty of exploring to be done in the Great Lakes, as well, whether it’s a guided historical waterfront cruise or a scuba diving excursion to a Lake Superior shipwreck.

Retreat back to civilization with a trip to one of Wisconsin’s popular cities and towns. In Milwaukee, grab a brew and a tour at Miller Brewery, get a history lesson from the Pabst Mansion, or explore the Art Museum there. Meander the streets of the charming college town of Madison, Wisconsin’s state capital, also known as the “City of Lakes”. Views from the capitol building’s observation deck are truly breathtaking. And no sports enthusiast couple’s visit to Wisconsin would be complete without catching a Brewers baseball game in Milwaukee or a Packers football game in Green Bay.

Newlyweds will find natural wonders, midwestern charm, and palate-pleasing culinary delights to craft a honeymoon itinerary overflowing with opportunities for adventure and relaxation. Wisconsin could very well be the perfect place to start a wonderful new life together.
