It’s done. You’ve struggled. You’ve stressed. You’ve probably cried. You’ve most likely been living off of energy drinks and coffee for the last few weeks. But it’s done and it’s time to relax because summer is here!
But now what?
If you’re anything like me, this is always the tricky part. You spend all of spring semester daydreaming about the glories of summer. However, by the time summer does show up, you haven’t planned anything. Well, I’m going to be honest. I did that again. To counteract it, I’ve made a list of some things to do in Wisconsin over the summer and I wanted to share it with all of you! If you’re not from the Wisconsin area, I’m sure most of these can be tailored for your location.
Go to a drum corps show
See a show at one of the several outdoor Wisconsin theatres (American Players Theatre, Peninsula Players, etc.)
Go to the beach and soak up some sun (on the days when it’s not pouring rain)
Get employed and earn some extra cash
Enjoy the natural Wisconsin scenery at places like Copper Falls or Devil’s Lake
Spend a day being a tourist in your own state by going to Door County
Take an adventure to a bigger city and go to a museum (I’m a personal fan of the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago)
Floating down the River in Eau Claire

And a bonus one that people normally think of when they’re in Wisconsin:
Head to Wisconsin Dells: the water park capital of the world
Until Next Time,
