Into 2017 across Wisconsin

Welcome to 2017! The Packers are in the playoffs, the Badgers are in the Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic and the whole state is ready for what’s ahead.

New Year's 2017 Polar Bear Milwaukee

If you need to chill in January, this is one (extreme) way.

On a not-too-cold New Year’s Day, people jumped in water all over the state. Milwaukee’s annual Polar Bear Plunge at Bradford Beach wasn’t exactly a cakewalk, but better than some of those below-zero days people have experienced in the past!
