wi-imageEach week I write about places to stay and things to do in Wisconsin because I truly believe we have something to offer for everyone!  But don’t just take my word for it…  Check out what others around the web are saying about traveling in Wisconsin:

If you’re thinking Wisconsin Dells for your summer getaway with fishing, horseback riding, underground caves and, of course, waterparks, Wisconsin Dells – The Perfect Summer Getaway lists the Chula Vista Resort’s Lost Rios Indoor Waterpark among other don’t-miss Dells attractions.

Wisconsin’s Door County is the place to be in summer according to this article from the Bradenton Herald in Bradenton, FL.  If you’re looking for “one of those clean, quietly pristine places that seem almost like a throwback to the mellow 1950s, the old great resort towns of the Catskills, and television shows like ‘Ozzie and Harriett’ and ‘Leave it to Beaver’”, then you’ll definitely want to check out Door County.  Click here for more information on Wagon Trail Resort, described by the author as “surrounded by woods and water, [it's] the ideal place for adding to that anti-stress mode. Its buffet breakfast, seriously one of the best I’ve ever had, and its brimming-with-goodies bakery are considered local institutions.”

If you’re contemplating more responsible travel for 2009, click on over and read this article on sustainable travel and green tourism.  Mentioned in the article is The Pfister Hotel, a TravelGreen Wisconsin certified hotel.
