Quick Facts
- Wisconsin visitors and residents enjoy the state's 7,446 streams and rivers. End-to-end they'd stretch 26,767 miles. That is more than enough to circle the globe at the equator.

- Wisconsin's Door County has five state parks and 250 miles of shoreline along Lake Michigan. These figures represent more than any other county in the country.

- In 1878-1879 the Wisconsin legislature approved the creation of a state park in Vilas County. The proposal was not successful and the state ended up selling two-thirds of area land to lumber interest for $8 an acre in 1897.

- In 1900 land acquisition for Wisconsin's first state park began. The park became Interstate State Park located in St. Croix Falls.

- Devil's Lake was established in 1911. The facility has become one of Wisconsin's oldest and most famous state parks. It leads the state parks in attendance.

Quick Facts
- The town of Rugby is the geographical center of North America. A rock obelisk about 15 feet tall, flanked by poles flying the United States and Canadian flags marks the location.

- North Dakota passed a bill in 1987 making English the official state language. Because North Dakota is just flooded with foreigners you know. ;-7

- Geologically speaking Hillsboro is located in a large, flat, and ancient dried lake bottom surrounded by some of the most fertile farmland in the world.

- Milk is the official state beverage. Moooooo!

- In 1991 a study by Yale University researched and analyzed life in all 50 states. When the two-year study concluded, it was widely accepted that North Dakota is by far the most boring state in the union.

I see this as a battle between what each state is famous for....

Wisconsin is famous for cheese.
North Dakota is famous for "being cold."

Yeah, Wisconsin wins.

Wisconsin sucks. The people there that I had to interact with were disgusting and all had the stupid annoying accent. I've never been to ND but anything is better than Wisconsin.
