A lot of different things come to mind when you think of Wisconsin. The Packers, cheddar, the Brewers, Colby, the Badgers, Gouda, the Dells, havarti, Whistling Straits, Asiago, the House on the Rock, Parmesan. For some reason, unlike our fellow Americans on the East and West coasts, not many cheeseheads identify our ports or the fact that we are surrounded on three sides by water as one of our state’s distinguishing traits.
