Wisconsin is a state in the Midwestern region of the United States. The state borders two of the five great lakes (Lake Superior and Lake Michigan), and has a population of over 5 million.
Wisconsin has a reputation as a farming state, and while it is true it that the state produces more dairy products than any other state except California, and also is the nation's largest cheese producer, in fact, the state gets far more income from manufacturing than it does from agriculture (albeit one of the leading manufacturing industries is in fact food processing). Other important industries in Wisconsin include healthcare and tourism.
The state capital of Wisconsin is Madison, and the largest city is Milwaukee. Other cities in Wisconsin include Appleton, Eau Claire, Green Bay, Janesville, Kenosha, La Crosse, Oshkosh, Racine, Sheboygan, Waukesha and West Allis.
Attractions and places of interest in Wisconsin include Circus World Museum in Baraboo, Milwaukee Art Museum in Milwaukee and Wisconsin Maritime Museum in Manitowoc. There are also at least 4 zoos in the state including Milwaukee County Zoo, which is of course in Milwaukee. Finally, the Wisconsin State Fair, which is held in West Allis, is a popular annual event.
Perhaps the best known educational institution in Wisconsin is the University of Wisconsin-Madison which is in Madison
Professional sports teams in Wisconsin include the Beloit Snappers (Midwest League baseball) in Beloit, the Green Bay Packers (American football in the NFL) in Green Bay, the Milwaukee Admirals (ice hockey in the AHL) in Milwaukee, the Milwaukee Brewers (Major League Baseball) in Milwaukee, the Milwaukee Bucks (National Basketball Association) in Milwaukee, and the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers (Midwest League baseball) in Grand Chute.
