Welcome to the Midwest's playground. Wisconsin is a place of unrivaled natural beauty and surprising sophistication. Where Frank Lloyd Wright rubs shoulders with Lambeau Field. Where the Great Lakes compete with world-famous waterparks. And 'salt of the earth' mixes well with craft beers, brats and yes, lots of cheese.
We're headquartered in a place where friendliness is a way of life. Visitors are welcome.
Nestled between Chicago, Milwaukee and Minneapolis, Dodgeville, Wisconsin is a slice of peaceful countryside. Rolling hills and meadows create a spectacular backdrop for the slower pace of small town life. Here, main streets are lined with quaint eateries, shops and art galleries. Weekends are devoted to trout streams, hiking paths, ski slopes and lazy days on the lake.
