Sorry for the delay in replying. Just returned from WI (family funeral) and am catching up with the forum. We have a home in Blount County in the Chilhowee View area. Since we love NASCAR, Bristol was a fleeting interest. However, it's just a little too cold for us. If weather were not an issue, we certainly would have considered the tri-cities.

Well my favorite section of wisconsin is anywhere between Baraboo and Lacrosse. The terrain includes rolling hills and deep valleys and plenty of old time omish people. I hope they never overly develop that land.

That's the main reason I'm drawn to the Tri-Cities, you still get a smidge of snow and some cold weather. Plus the summers there aren't as warm because of elevation. I love the views of the mountains there.

Default Lived in WIsconsin for 18 years...

Definately NOT Green Bay! The only thing we've got going is The Packers and Brett Favre and now we don't even have him anymore! Oh yeah, and cheese.. hehe! There's even a cheese shop at the little airport here lol.

I've been to places all over Wisconsin and my favorites spots have gotta be La Crosse and Door County.

La Crosse is hilly w/ beautiful scenic look-outs and laid back ppl. Cost of living is excellent.
Door County is famous for cherry and apple picking, wide open spaces, unique shops and tourist towns, and boating in the summertime.

I've traveled to tons of places and my family there keeps me coming back often... Nice place to raise your kids!

I agree. I really want to get out of Milwaukee.(well I live in a suburb now) However, the main reason is the weather. I HATE winter. I'm going through a background check with Los Angeles Fire Dept right now. I'll still be trying with Milwaukee when they test this spring, but I'd take LA in a heartbeat over Milwaukee because of the weather alone.

Other than the weather though, I think Milwaukee is beautiful I'm definitely a big-city guy. The east side is just great.

I couldn't agree with you more. I know Milwaukee wouldn't be the next Seattle. It could sure compete with Austin, I think. The four distinct seasona are the main reason people like it here. I would say that a winter that wasn't so long would be nice. Maybe 2.5 to 3 months of cold and snow.

The area between Stevens Point and Wisconsin Rapids. Many years ago, during school vacation from Chicago, I spent three consecutive summers on a small farm by Milladore, in Wood County. Nothing awe inspiring, just ordinary farm country, but those were some of the best summers in my youth. I learned about farm machinery, the different types of crops, and all about the livestock. Andy and I had to go out into the pastures to bring the cows back for their evening milking. One of our greatest thrills was to jump around (barefoot) in fresh cowpies.
