Wisconsin is a beautiful state to tour, especially from the seat of a motorcycle, and Walker is especially proud of Milwaukee County and all it has to offer. Milwaukee County Parks received the 2009 National Gold Medal Award for the best park system in the country. Along with that, Milwaukee has a top rated Zoo, one of the best State Fairs in the country, world class entertainment and dining, the world's largest music festival, Summerfest, and Miller Park, home of the Milwaukee Brewer's major league baseball team. Did we mention Milwaukee is also home to Harley-Davidson?
