Wisconsin is a destination where your groups will find an adventure at every turn. Whether traveling on the interstate, country roads or the state’s many waterways, your guests will encounter beautiful vistas, experience great food, discover arts and entertainment, revel in history and culture, appreciate unique architecture and have just plain FUN.

Discover all this and more in your 2018 Circle Wisconsin Tour Planner. Feature articles, sample itineraries and member listings are designed to assist you in finding the very best of our state to explore with your groups.

Here are a few things you might not have known about Wisconsin (but can learn about on your next tour):

  • Soviet satellite Sputnik IV fell out of orbit in 1962 and while most of it burned up on re-entry, a 20-pound piece of debris crashed to the ground in Manitowoc. The original piece of Sputnik was returned to the Soviets, but the Rahr-West Art Museum in Manitowoc has a replica of it on display.
  • It’s still illegal for a restaurant to serve margarine as a butter substitute unless the customer specifically requests it.
  • Wisconsin is known as the Badger State after the habits of early miners in the region who either lived in mine shafts or dug their homes out of the sides of hills – just like badgers do.
