The Eastern Ridges and Lowlands is a geographical region in the eastern part of the state, between the Bay of Green Bay in the north and the state border with Illinois border in the south. Lake Michigan lies to the east of the region.
The majority of the region is covered by farmland. Many of Wisconsin's largest cities are located in the Eastern Ridges and Lowlands region, including Milwaukee, Madison, Green Bay, Kenosha, Racine, Appleton, and many more.

The largest city in the region is Wausau. Other principal cities include Merrill, Rhinelander, and Ladysmith. Despite the absence of large cities, tourism is an important part of the local economy. The region's numerous lakes and forests make it a popular destination for outdoor enthusiasts during the summer season.

Cuisine  -  Wisconsin Recipes

Known as "America's Dairyland," Wisconsin is known for cheese. Citizens of Wisconsin are referred to as Wisconsinites, although a common nickname (sometimes used pejoratively) among non-residents is "Cheeseheads," due to the prevalence and quality of cheesemaking in the state.

  The Bratwurst Pages

Why the Bratwurst Pages? Because bratwurst is the party food of Wisconsin. Because it's the world's best -tasting sausage, the memory of which causes great angst among expatriate Wisconsinites. Because the website owners have a passion for bratwurst, and want you to cook them right, for your maximum enjoyment . They hope that you'll enjoy the bratwurst pages, and remember to eat bratwurst anywhere else, but don't eat them at your computer. It's hard to clean the juices from your keyboard.

People of German ancestry are the largest ancestry group most of the state, with about half of the state's white population reporting at least partial German ancestry on the Census, and Wisconsin is widely regarded as the most "German-American" state in the Union (although North Dakota, with 43.9% German ancestry, can also make this claim). People of Scandinavian descent, especially Norwegians, are heavily concentrated in some western parts of the state. Wisconsin also has the highest percentage of residents of Polish ancestry of any state. Menominee county is the only county in the eastern United States with an American Indian majority.
