Wisconsin Topography

Wisconsin is derived from the Chippewa word "Ouisconsin", which means "gathering of the waters" or "grassy place".  Much of Wisconsin's terrain consists of rolling plains, dotted with many glacial lakes.  In the north, the scenic Gogebic range straddles the Wisconsin-Michigan border region.  The Wisconsin, Saint Croix, and Chippewa are the state's chief rivers.  Tourists are drawn to the natural beauty of the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore and the Saint Croix National Scenic Riverway, as well as historic landmarks such as the National Railroad Museum and the Wisconsin Maritime Museum.  For additional Wisconsin travel and tourism information, visit the official Wisconsin tourism site and Wisconsin Atlas.
