Wisconsin is the state directly above Illinois. The state capital is Madison and I always remember that because they kind of rhyme in a way. They also have the same endings. Wisconsin was the 30th state to join the United States. It was admitted on May 29, 1848. Some of Wisconsin's major industries include farming, machinery, beer, tourism, and dairy products. The most popular dairy products would be milk, butter, and cheese. Wisconsin is probably most known as the dairy state. This state has a continental climate. Summers are warm and winters are very cold. I went on vacation three years ago to Wisconsin. We visited as far north as you can go. It was a small town called St. Germain. I was there over the fourth of July weekend and every morning it was freezing outside and in the afternoons if the sun was out then it was hot but if it wasn't then it was pretty cold. I had a lot of fun and I would probably go back.
