25 Years of Discovering Wisconsin | Discover Wisconsin
We've logged millions of miles over the last 25 years in the quest to capture the essence of what makes Wisconsin such a great place to live, work and play. But rather than create a retrospective look back at the TV show, we've decided to celebrate our 25th season by doing what we've always done—feature the best Wisconsin has to offer.
In both our 25th Anniversary Book - Discovering the Very Best of the Badger State - and our Discover Wisconsin 25th Anniversary episode, check out the best of Wisconsin.

The Lighthouses of Door County WI : Lake Michigan Road Trip
If you spend any amount of time traveling around the Great Lakes, you'll quickly realize the importance they once (and still do) served as a shipping and transportation hub of the central part of the United States. In the mid-late 1860's a series of lighthouses started popping up on the shores of Lake Michigan.
During a recent trip around Lake Michigan, the 50 Campfires team decided to stop by and check out these historic light houses that are sprinkled across the Door County landscape. There's definitely something mysterious - yet intriguing about these beacons of light that help ships safely pass the rugged shores of this great lake.
Thanks to the Door County Maritime Museum for the primer! If you're in Sturgeon Bay, be sure to stop by and check out their exhibit:
