Inspired by that other Wisconsin thread.
Despite Jeffrey Dahmer, Joe McCarthy and Tommy Thompson, Wisconsin is a great place.
I literally know 20+ people here in San Francisco from Wisconsin. Three of my closest friends are from Wisconsin. I actually know more people from Wisconsin than from San Francisco, even though I live in San Francisco.
Although I was born and raised in Gary, Indiana, I've visited Wisconsin many times. It is a beautiful place. Very affordable, four seasons, lots of outdoors activities, great cheese, cute fat girls, great schools, Democratic leaning and best of all, Midwest Airlines is based there.
I've flirted with the idea of moving to Superior or Sheboygan Wisconsin.
I am not a huge sports fan but the Green Bay Packers are awesome. They play on real grass outside even when it's -20 degrees.
You have to admire them over some wimps that play inside on fake grass under a dome in Texas where it hardly snows.
ooops, did I say Cowboys.
Some of the greatest members in our government come from Wisconsin.
U.S. Senator Russ Feingold
One of the greatest voices in the United States House of Representatives, Congressman David Obey.
American Motors was based in Kenosha.
Wisconsin girls are the best America has to offer outside of California and Hawaii.

I spent a bit of time in Milwaukee with some dear friends of mine a couple of years ago. I really fell in love with the place. Because when in the US I share my time between LA and NY it was great to see some of the real american heartland.
Wisconsin has a great culture inspired quite significantly by it's German origins. The beer is great, the nightlife is great - I can't say a bad thing about the place at all.

Living in Chicago I go to Wisconsin quite a few times a year. Things I enjoy about Wisconsin:
-Buying great cheese (cheap) at one of the many dairy farms
-Shopping at the outlet mall in Kenosha
-The annual EAA Airventure in Oshkosh
-Going to Miller Park to cheer for the Cubs when they're in town. Nice park by the way, too bad the team sucks.
-Camping and skiing (believe it or not)
-Visiting the Wisconsin Dells. Always a good time.
Things I can't stand about Wisconsin:
-The Green Bay Packers. I mean props to them for playing outdoors on natural grass, but I get that here in Chicago with the Bears with the exception of Favre, ugly green and gold uniforms, and fans with blocks of cheese on their heads.
-The ridiculous speeding fines..
The jury is still out the women. There are plenty of fat girls, but not too many of them are cute.

Too true. Miller Park is awesome, but in all of the 6 or 7 Brewers games I've been to over the years, they only won one of them. Oh well, at least we have the Packers (who everyone seems to hate)!

Wisconsin is a great place...down-to-earth people who know how to have fun. The Wisconsin girls you posted look pretty accurate...I have 3 aunts living in Wisconsin and they are all "curvy" to say the least. One of them used to wrestle, but now she's a firefighter.
Milwaukee is a very underrated city in my opinion. Apart from Minneapolis it is my 2nd favorite Midwest city. Also Door County (on the pinky sticking into Lake Michigan) is a very scenic area. It's a vacation destination in the summer but it's still very laid back and apparently not overrun with tourists. I have relatives who just moved there, so hopefully I'll get a chance to visit soon.
