Wisconsin, located in the midwestern United States, is known for being a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts. Home to more than 15,000 lakes and 11 national parks, Wisconsin offers plenty of opportunities for activities such as biking, hiking, fishing, and camping. Those looking to explore the culture can visit Milwaukee's Summerfest known as the world's largest music festival or take a stroll through Madison's State Street with its unique collection of shops and restaurants. Additionally, visitors can tour Door County which boasts 300 miles of picturesque coastline along Lake Michigan or marvel at the stunning natural beauty at Apostle Islands National Lakeshore in Bayfield County. An interesting historical fact is that Wisconsin was part of two major territorial acquisitions; it was part of "The Louisiana Purchase" from France in 1803 and also "The Northwest Ordinance" from Britain in 1783.
