... The nation’s first kindergarten classes were held in Wisconsin.
... Wisconsin is known as the Badger State.
Wisconsin’s motto is held in one word: forward! It explains a lot of the state’s push for modernization, a stronger economy, and industrial expansion. The state is home to over 6 million people and has a median household income of $64,168. The state ranks 21st for median household income.
Major employers in the state include Walmart, Coors, Marshfield Clinic, Target, Menards, and the Milwaukee Public Schools District. The economy is driven primarily by agriculture, healthcare, manufacturing, transportation, commercial food processing, and tourism.
Beer culture is pretty strong in Wisconsin, but that’s not all there is to enjoy. Architecture fans can visit Monona Terrace, a building inspired by the work of Frank Lloyd Wright. Multiple ethnic festivals are all over the state, including Polish Fest, Oktoberfest, Festa Italiana, Bastille Days, Polka Days, and even Cheese Days.
Fans of live music should definitely check out Summerfest, which is considered one of the largest music festivals in the state.
