To look out over the gleaming waters of the Fox and Wisconsin Rivers is to survey the history— and future—of Wisconsin itself. Here, native peoples raised their families on its banks. Explorers canoed its snaking path toward the Mississippi paving the way for European settlement. And generations have flocked to its shores to earn their living, picnic with loved ones and seek their next big catch. These rivers beckon all around to delight in their beauty and bounty. The Fox River is an industrial powerhouse and is one of the few rivers to flow north. It’s counterpart, the Wisconsin River, is a wild and scenic, sand bar-spotted beauty. Together these rivers, and their contributing waterways connect us all with our history, culture—and each other— in ways few other natural treasures can.
