I actually like the flat prairies of Western MN. It gives a variation to the state that Wisconsin just doesn't have, and I actually do find them beautiful in an understated sort of way.

WI has prairies located in the south central part of the state, running between the Madison and Janesville areas. WI just has a lot more variety in its landscape than MN does. Most of the beautiful areas in MN share a border with WI, same can be said for NW Iowa and the Dubuque area.

Also, what I like about Wisconsin is the whole eastern border is a lakeshore.

Exactly. I-90 between Janesville and Beloit? Flat as a pancake. Same for I-94 between Milwaukee and Kenosha.

The Packers suck.
The Packers are located in Wisconsin.
Therefore Wisconsin sucks.


I rest my case.

Out of Line!
This post is plain and simple an unreasonable slam on an entire state. After all, the place we know of as "Wisconsin" had no choice in the type of people that would eventually settle here no more than the once beautiful country of Elbonia should be scorned for the dullards who chose to settle there.

As an outdoorsman the Boundary Waters are a bit better than Vilas County, Wisconsin. I prefer the Northwoods of both states along with the Twin Cities. Twin Cities> Milwaukee in terms of the job market. Madison is OK with a great natural setting.
