Explore Natural Wonders – Outdoor Attractions
From stunning sea caves to towering waterfalls and to sandy beaches and limestone cliffs, Wisconsin is full of breathtaking natural wonders waiting to be explored.
With 1,100 miles of freshwater coastline, you and your family can spend quality time relaxing on the ocean-like beaches of Lake Michigan and Lake Superior and exploring dramatic bluffs along the Mississippi River.
Camp under the stars at Newport State Park, an international Dark Sky Park, where away from city lights, the night sky comes alive with constellations, shooting stars, and the ethereal glow of the Milky Way.
Scuba dive (yes, in Wisconsin!) at the Wisconsin Shipwreck Coast National Marine Sanctuary, one of only 15 marine sanctuaries in the U.S. You can even go surfing with friends at Kohler Andrae State Park, named “The Malibu of the Midwest.” Kayak through striking sea caves of Apostle Island National Lakeshore as you learn about Native American history and pass more sunken shipwrecks below.
Created by Mother Nature and ripe for exploring, these scenic spots are the ultimate backdrop to lasting memories, including some of the best hiking, biking and kayaking you’ll find around the Midwest. With so much to do, start planning now for the trip of a lifetime.
