There’s no better time to trek out to a cozy oasis than in the still of winter — especially with Valentine’s Day right around the corner. Not only are Wisconsin’s bed and breakfasts less crowded this time of year, but there’s no better place to watch the snow fall as you sip on a steaming mug of hot cocoa or coffee and leave the rest of the world behind.

Wisconsinites and fish go way back. About 136 million years, give or take. Alright, Wisconsin wasn’t “Wisconsin” back then, but the prehistoric lake sturgeon was around during the time of the dinosaurs. Once considered a nuisance, this living relic is renowned for its caviar. The fish itself is delicious smoked and their skins can be tanned for leather.
