What to eat on your Wisconsin holiday
The German influence on Wisconsin's cuisine is evident through the presence of bratwurst (German sausages) at summer cookouts. Pack some to enjoy at your Wisconsin holiday home with a round of chilled beer. Those with a sweet tooth should sample the rich and creamy frozen custard made from egg — hard to find outside the midwest.
Wisconsin being the dairy state of America proposes plenty of dairy-related options such as fried cheese curds. Eastern Wisconsin's Bouja soup made from chicken, pork, beef and veggies is influenced by the Polish population that once settled here. With all those lakes, can fish be far behind? Try the 'Friday All You Can Eat Fish Fry' served with delicious tartar sauce and fries. Wisconsin also offers exciting cheese factory tours where award-winning cheeses can be sampled.
The best time to visit Wisconsin
Wisconsin enjoys two high seasons, namely summer and winter. Vacationers flock here between June to October for activities such as biking, fishing, swimming, and of course the summer festivals. Fall is quieter causing prices of many Wisconsin holiday lettings to dip slightly.
The season picks up again from December through February when winter sports figure prominently on most itineraries. Make sure your Wisconsin holiday accommodation is booked well in advance if you plan on coming in this period. No matter the season, mid-week bookings will give you the best prices.
