We’ve all dreamed of moving to our favorite vacation spots. Who hasn’t dreamed of moving to Hawaii and being able to lounge on a beach after work? Or taking off to Alberta and getting the experience of both the exciting ski hills in the winter and the breathtaking hiking trails in the summer? But what would it be like to live in a tourist destination? There are actually a lot of reasons that living in a vacation spot is favorable. For one, you learn about all of the secret spots and hidden gems in the area. You also have easy access to the best restaurants, shops and parks 24/7. Plus, you never run out of things to do. So, without further ado, here are the 7 best homes in Wisconsin vacation spots:
