It’s Time to Shift Your Gears

We’re all friends here – or will be soon, right? – so let’s agree on one thing: 2012 has the potential to be a pretty crummy year.

Bitter partisanship in our political process. A topsy-turvy economy that’s up one minute, down the next. A do-it-now, plugged-in, share-everything culture that says a smart phone is more important than a good book and a comfortable deck chair. And, if we believe the Mayans (maybe we shouldn’t: I bet they didn’t even have smart phones), the world’s going to end in December. BEFORE you get any of your Christmas presents.

It’s time to change things up, time to get away from all that negativity. It’s time to Shift Your Gears.

We’re here to help you do just that. Set aside a weekend, fill up the tank, grab the kids and head down the highway to one of Wisconsin Travel Best Bets’ 12 great destinations (or better yet, set aside a dozen weekends and visit all of them).

And we’re not sending you out there without any resources, either. What you’ll find on this blog: tips and tricks to make the most out of your travels; regular features like “Three to See”, which highlights (guess how many) things that should be on your to-do list for each of our destinations; updates on our super-cool Shift Your Gears Contest, where you can win a weekend getaway for two to the destination of your choosing; and photos, videos and more that show off everything our locales have to offer.

Check back here often, as we’ll be posting frequent updates. Safe travels!
