Most people have some time off over the next couple of weeks, so if you're not already busy traveling to see family and friends, (and panic shopping), I highly encourage you to do some fun Christmas exploring!

Illinois is FULL of fun things to do and see during the holiday season, but if you think your family has already done all the Christmasy things Illinois has to offer, why not set your sights North of the border this year?

The Ten Best Christmas Towns in Wisconsin

Full disclosure, my family fully intended on spending the week after Christmas into the New Year at our new cabin in Wisconsin, but sadly, it's not finished yet. (Damn you, supply chain issues!) I bring that up only because we also fully intended on enjoying a true Wisconsin Christmas experience, which led me to do some research about places we need to see during the holiday season. My research led me to an article on about the best holiday towns in Wisconsin.

After looking up most of the places on this list, I will tell you this much; there are a TON of fun Christmasy things to do in each of them. In fact, there are so many cool things to see and experience, I really can't list them all and do them justice. So, how about I give you the locations, and then your family can decide what to see when you go there? Happy discovering!
