re: cold - 9/24/2009 - 12/14/2010
i grew up in Appleton and Little Chute, am 20 years old. Im gonna share my full feelings for WI., bare with me.. i used to think that Wi. was not a fun place to grow up and live. Well now that I'm older, i realize that i couldn't have been more wrong. There are so many great things to do just in my area, or a short drive. Many things, I took for granted, untill now, since im leaving for college soon. I probably won't be able to enjoy all these things together again all together. First off in summer, the days are long hot and humid... just how i like it, its perfect for a day of swimming at Red Granite Quarry(Redgranite, WI.)Or on a really hot day, take a day trip to Wisconsin Dells to cool off. The nights are nice enough to sleep outside in shorts and a t. Some of the best activities in the country happen in WI. We have Country USA Music Festival in Oshkosh, the city also plays host to LifeFest, and The EAA Convention. All three of those events are the LARGEST of their kind! We have great fishing, camping, hiking, and recreation. In general the summers are summed up by -you'll have some of the best times that you wont remember with people that you will never forget forget. Then it comes to fall. Alot of the summer outdoor activities (camping, hiking, fishing) care also really popular in fall. The trees get pretty beautiful. A great time of year to take a trip to Door CO. or La Crosse, WI. Even a hike on Rib MT. But my favorite thing about falls in Wi, fore sure has to be the start of the NFL season. and NFL in WI means, GREEN BAY PACKERS, the pride and joy of my life! But Then... Fall turns to winter( my least favorite) Long... Cold.... Icey.... Wet. However, there is plenty of great things to do in a Wi. winter. Ice fishing on the lake. Or after a big snow fall take a drive up to Hurley, Wi and spend the weekend there snowmobiling. its great for skiing and snowboarding. Lets not forget about the start of deer hunting! Yeah.. its kind of a big deal here. But, all those fun things come with some cons. Like.. scraping your windows off in 0 degree weather for 15 minutes, brrr. Or the fact that the snow makes everything sooo much fore difficult. But it turns out that no matter how long and terrible the winter is, everyday becomes worth it if the Packers make the playoffs. p.s Every sports fan should take a trip to Green Bay, Wi. to visit the shining jewel of the NFL, iconic lambeau Field looking back at all that, having grown up in WI. and having been brought up around loving, caring, and thoughtful people; the kind of people that are all over Wi. I realize that I would not have wanted to grow up ANYWHERE else!

why i like wisconsin, why i don't like wisconsin - 8/4/2013

wisconsin to me is a very friendly state. actually people are a little too friendly most of the time..... they kind of get in your business a little too much for my money. but they really are friendly. they are very nosy and act like they know you wherever you go in wisconsin. so that is why i used as my subject title why i like wisconsin and why i don't wisconsin..... it just depends on the day. i guess i would have to say that 99% of the people in wisconsin are super friendly. they would go out of their way to talk to anyone just for the sake of talking. there is no stranger in this state. i have lived here for 18 years. it is a nice quality, this friendliness. (but sometimes i want to be left alone) lol.[read more...]

Recreation in Southeast Wisconsin - 1/17/2011

Living in southeast Wisconsin provides access to a variety of recreational opportunities. The Milwaukee area has a large and extensive county park system that includes a variety of outdoor activities from golf and hiking to waterparks, fishing, and the Lake Michigan waterfront. There are also numerous other outdoor areas and activiities within just a few hours driving distance that includes historical (Old World Wisconsin), hunting, boating, fishing and skiing outlets for anyone who enjoys being outdoors. Also within a few hours of driving are some of the better known tourist tourist areas such as Wisconsin Dells and Door County. Finally, just 75 miles south of the Milwaukee area lies Chicago which provides the "big city" activities in contrast for those that prefer the urban setting and travel. [read more...]

You get what you pay for and you get a lot in Wisc - 2/2/2010

I think Wisconsin has it all. Four beautiful seasons (though yes by March I am ready to see some green too) and the best services that tax dollars can pay for. We have great schools, great state and local services, and limitless opportunities. I have been in states with no sewer systems, where you have to buy stickers on every bag of garbage, where the schools are crumbling, and state parks, etc. are an empty field. I will pay my money and live here any day.[read more...]

General Wisconsin info - 11/10/2008

Winters can be brutal. Beautiful natural resources throughout the state. Milwaukee charm (culterally diverse, summer festivals, parks on the lake, a bit of a small town feel with city "stuff" and Chicago near enough if you want bigger). Rest of WI has little diversity.[read more...]

Third highest in taxes in the nation - 6/13/2008

We live in Northern Wisconsin in a city an hour from lake Superior called Minocqua. On a warm sunny day it is beautiful, but long cold,gray,snowy winters as we age. Moved up here from Illinois and did not realize the amount of taxes they would levy on just about everything! On retirement income, social security, gas, food, etc. We do have to say that property taxes are not any different than we had in IL., but the cost of living up here is hard if you want to retire and no longer work, so know that you may have to work part time at least, and that if you want to live lakeside, the homes will be expensive, even cabins or fixers. We were unaware and did not do our homework and so have now after 6yrs put our house on the market and hope to sell and move to a more tax friendly state and a warmer climate.[read more...]
