Minnesota and Wisconsin have several things in common: Midwestern hospitality, budget-friendly prices and seasonal weather allowing for outdoor activities year-round, requiring only a change in what to wear. Both states have an abundance of water, with rivers flowing into lakes, rolling into tiny inlets and back.
