Benefits of Living in Wisconsin

So you've decided to move west from New York and are headed to Wisconsin. Most people don't know that the state did not get its nickname of Badger State from the animal. It actually refers to miners in the 1920s who dug tunnels to create a warm spot to sleep, the same way badgers do. The state is also home of the ice cream sundae and the jump rope. So now you know the most important things, but there is more to learn before you can truly call Wisconsin "home."

Wisconsin has a Favorable

Cost of Living

The cost of living index in the Badger State is 97, compared to the national average of 100 and New York’s 120.5. Housing costs in Wisconsin sit almost 15% below the national average with a median home cost of $188,100. If you’re not ready to buy right away, you’re in luck: rents are $200-$500 less than those in comparable cities across the country. The central and northern parts of the state are more affordable than the big cities of Milwaukee and Madison.

Wisconsin does have

Higher Taxes

Wisconsin made the list of least tax-friendly states for middle-class families, putting the state right on par with New York. Property taxes in the state are the eighth highest in the nation, and income taxes are also above average. The saving grace is that sales taxes are among the lowest in the country, so if you like to shop you’re moving to the right spot.

Prepare Yourself for

Extreme Winter Weather

An old Wisconsin joke says there are only two seasons: winter and construction. The roads pay the price for the brutal cold climate, with temperatures that rarely top freezing and snow that can total over140 inches. The peak of summer season occurs between June and August, where few parts of the state see temperatures rise above 80 degrees. Thunderstorms are common during warmer months, and humidity tends to be high.

Year-round Outdoor Recreation

Wisconsin boasts 1,100 miles of Lake Michigan coastline, plus Lake Superior, 15,000 inland lakes and 8,400 river miles. Boating, fishing, kayaking, and other water sports are huge in the warmer months. Be sure to visit the sharp cliff faces of the Niagara Escarpment on the eastern side of the state. The Ice Age National Scenic Trail traverses over 1,200 miles, highlighting unique geographic features formed by ancient glaciers. Be sure to pack your swimsuit and put on your brave face: the Wisconsin Dells area boasts over two hundred water slides!

Explore Wisconsin's Many

State Parks

The 66 state parks, forests, fisheries, trails, and wildlife areas in Wisconsin offer more than 156,000 acres of recreation and attract over 20 million visitors each year. Devil’s Lake State Park is both the largest and the most visited park in Wisconsin, offering hiking with breathtaking views and a huge lake with canoeing, kayaking and stand-up paddling. Situated on limestone cliffs, High Cliff State Park overlooks Lake Winnebago, the state’s largest inland lake. Be sure to visit the twelve-foot statue of Indian Chief Red Bird for a great photo opp. For truly magnificent photography, don’t miss Copper Falls State Park, where the natural beauty of the gorges and waterfalls will leave you awestruck.

You'll Love the

Numerous Festivals

Known as the City of Festivals, Milwaukee hosts such events as Summerfest, the world’s largest music festival held on a 75-acre event space on the shore of Lake Michigan. That popular party location is the home to a variety of other ethnic festivals throughout the summer. Other places in Wisconsin know how to party, too. Be sure to check out events like Eaux Claire’s Music Festival, Bayfield’s Apple Fest, and La Crosse’s Oktoberfest.

Get Your Fill of

Beer, Cheese & Brats

The only state with a licensed Master Cheesemaker program, Wisconsin produces over three million pounds and 600 different varieties of cheese. That’s more than 25% of the nation’s cheese production, and it’s internationally award-winning good, too. Of course, you can’t talk about Wisconsin specialties without thinking beer. Milwaukee is home to four major, historic American breweries: Schlitz, Pabst, Blatz, and Miller. And, of course, you can’t talk about Wisconsin beer without a nod to the other result of the area’s German heritage: the beer brat, which is simmered in a pilsner mixed with butter and onions before grilling over charcoal. Try just one, and you’ll understand the hype.


Farm-to-Table Eating

Wisconsin’s devotion to agriculture means availability of fresh food across the state and throughout the year. Locally sourced restaurants have been popping up all over, showcasing the state’s produce, dairy, fish, and other meats. Be sure to try out award-winning restaurants such as The Driftless Cafe in Viroqua, Ardent in Milwaukee, or L’Etoile in Madison.

There's an Abundance of

Sports in Wisconsin

In Wisconsin, Sundays are for watching Green Bay football. If you can’t let go of your New York teams, at least keep it quiet because Packers fans are rabid. While football is king, it’s not the only professional sport. Milwaukee is home to the NBA team the Bucks as well as the MLB’s Brewers. The state also supports the Admirals, an affiliate hockey club for the Nashville Predators. The University of Wisconsin keeps residents excited year-round with competitive football, basketball, ice hockey and cross-country teams.

Wisconsin has a

Freshwater Focus

With the Great Lakes containing 21% of the global freshwater supply, Wisconsin is on the forefront of the world’s water industry. The region houses more than 150-water related companies and encourages a slew of water-related startup businesses. The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee offers the nation’s only graduate program in freshwater studies. With its location on the shores of Lake Michigan and at the confluence of three rivers, Milwaukee is one of only two North American and thirteen worldwide cities listed as a United Nations Global Compact Innovating City.
