In this year’s travel trends forecast from TripAdvisor.com, one of the top trips being planned by respondents for 2012 is a cultural trip, meaning a getaway built around a visit to a museum or historic site. They even gave this category of travelers a catchy name – “culture vultures.” This is a trend that Wisconsin B&Bs can really get behind. After all, 26 of our member inns are National Historic Register properties, so a visit to one of them is already a cultural trip in and of itself. If you’re interested in Wisconsin Historic Sites, there are 10 of them, from the Madeline Island Museum in the northernmost tip of the state to the First Capitol in Belmont in the southwest corner of Wisconsin. The Wisconsin Historical Museum is located on the Capitol Square in Madison and it’s full of wonderful information about the state’s rich history. We recommend the exhibit “Wisconsin innovations: From the Iconic to the Unexpected” which runs through August.
