When ever you visit a new city I encourage you to see it from above. Go up a skyscraper, observation tower, rooftop view - or my personal favorite - a good old fashion hike!

This was perhaps one of the dreamiest days of my life. I’m not kidding when I say I’ll remember it perfectly in 50 years! Mt.

It was surely not what I expected, I mean it didn’t even show up in my things to do in Wisconsin search! But thank goodness our local friend Jon saved the day.
Growing up I feel truly blessed getting to travel as much as I did. My family loved going on trips together, I got to travel a bunch for swimming, and tagged along every now and then when my Dad had out of state meetings. When I was young I may not have taken each destination into appreciation like I should have or really had the opportunity to explore, so I officially added it to my bucket list to see all fifty states by the time I am fifty!

The Tower is 1,092 feet tall, which is just a couple hundred feet shorter than the Empire State Building! There are actually two observation decks on the tower, one at 150 meters and one at 250 meters! Both vary in hours of operation, cost, and overall experience.
