Main Street destinations to visit this summer


As Main Street staff members, we are often asked to recommend Wisconsin destinations that are unique, fun and exciting.

There are excellent destinations for all three groups across Wisconsin. This month, we’ll take you on a virtual tour of some Wisconsin Main Street gems. We hope it inspires you to explore new places in our great state this summer. If you’re interested in creating custom itineraries for your community, keep reading.

Wisconsin history beckons today's tourists

Wisconsin is blessed with historic buildings, districts and communities. Many communities have embraced this history and made a concerted effort to preserve these irreplaceable treasures, resulting in beautiful historic commercial districts and residential neighborhoods.
