Moving to or From Wisconsin? Here’s What You Need to Know…
Wisconsin (WI), nicknamed The Badger State, was the 30th state in the U.S., becoming a state on May 29, 1848. The capital of the state is Madison, and the largest city in the state is Milwaukee. Other major cities include Green Bay, Oshkosh, Menomonie, Racine and Fond du Lac (on Lake Winnebago). More than 5,732,714 Wisconsinites call the state home.
The state is bordered by Minnesota, Michigan, Iowa, and Illinois, along with two Great Lakes, Lake Michigan and Lake Superior. The major rivers — Wisconsin River, Mississippi River, St. Croix River, and the Chippewa River – support commerce and recreation. Tourism is a major industry in Wisconsin – the state’s third largest, according to the Department of Tourism. Tourist destinations such as the House on the Rock near Spring Green, Circus World Museum in Baraboo, and The Dells of the Wisconsin River draw thousands of visitors annually. Festivals such as Summerfest and the Experimental Aircraft Association’s Oshkosh Airshow draw international attention, along with hundreds of thousands of visitors.
Wisconsin is known as “America’s Dairyland” because it is one of the nation’s leading dairy producers, particularly famous for cheese. Manufacturing, especially paper products, information technology (IT), and tourism are also major contributors to the state’s economy. The economy of Wisconsin is driven by manufacturing, agriculture, and health care.
Wisconsin is represented by major league teams in three sports: football, baseball, and basketball. Lambeau Field, located in Green Bay, Wisconsin, is home to the National Football League’s Green Bay Packers. The Milwaukee Brewers, the state’s only major league baseball team, play in Miller Park in Milwaukee. The Milwaukee Bucks of the National Basketball Association play home games at the Bradley Center.
