Tourism, Stephanie Klett, who talked with us about a few of Wisconsin's hidden gems.
"Southeast Wisconsin is gorgeous," she said. "And plus, in the southwest
corner of the state you can catch the Great River Road, which is a
national scenic byway. It just won prettiest drive in the United States
by the readers of the Huffington post."
