Holiday Fun in Wisconsin

My family LOVES the holiday season so we try to cram in as much Christmas fun as we can every December. Baking cookies, visits with Santa, and Christmas light rides are just a few of the things on our holiday to-do list, and each year we try to add something new.

My family has done a few of the Chicago Christmas things in the past, so this year I'm setting my sights on Wisconsin...particularly, Lake Geneva. Here's why...
