Ok, title says it all. It's been done before. From a Wisconsin perspective, how would you compare the two states?

Lifestyles
Economies
Similarities
Differences

I know there is kind of a loose rivalry between the states that I think is fun, plus which rivalry is better than the Viqueens and the Fudge Packers?

Don't care for either of the two states outside of their perspective cities. I think the two states are very similar in most category's.

Does mommy know you're using mean and naughty words on the computer past your bedtime?

As an Iowan who spends most of my enjoyable time in Wi or Mn I think there are differences but both states are great. My favorite city in the US to live in is the TC area. It has a level of sophistication that does commend the monker "Little Apple" So I can get my fix for great jazz music at the Dakota and upscale shopping or dining. Milwaukee and Madison don't compare..The North shore is also unique..more beautiful, better streams and lakes (Boundary Waters) than the south Shore...with the exception of Bayfield , which is a total jewel.. Also spend time in SE Mn . Great trout streams and Lanesboro is romatic place for a weekend or the rest of your life...And Minnesotans are a lot like Ioweegans.. We all sat up straight in our pews at church aas children and are still overly polite but will cut off your privates if you get on our bad side.. Minnesotans enjoy cleaning ...no unkept farm yard or back yard..

Wisconsin , border to border is the most beautiful state in the country. From the Driftless hills and streams to the Brule River Forest..It is just marvelous. Best blend of rural, town and city anywhere..Great raodside supper clubs...every little town has a funky coffee shop and a decent bar. People recreate outside in every form of weather and season. Conservation of all that beauty is not just an ethic for urban liberals who don't hunt or fish...everyone has pride in the resource and fights to stop a new dam or a bottled water plant near a pristine stream. Wisconsonites drive fewer BMWs than Minnesotans and may have a couple of rusted pickups in the yard..But they have more fun and are passionate and proud of their identity........So its pretty much a tie......I need a Leini original

I really like BLCLLC's reply with the one exception that for the best Superior coastline, Michigan beats them both. MN and WI can't even come close! Well, IMO. Of course, Michigan isn't suppose to be included in this thread...
