Wisconsin Bucket List ~ Northeast Region

Today we head into the Northeast Region of Wisconsin which is another popular tourist area with the famed Door County area! I’m a day behind this week since yesterday we were asked to use appliances minimally to help our southern neighbors get power restored faster! My laptop is getting old and always needs to be plugged in when using it, so I made the sacrifice and it means you’ll get a special Saturday post you don’t normally get!
