Get Your Snow Tubing Fix In At These 7 Awesome Hills in Wisconsin
I know many people are not going to like what I'm about to say, but I'm going to say it anyway...I really want to see some snow right now.
I've given up wishing for a white Christmas, but it's officially winter, it's cold, and it would be nice if we finally had some pretty snow to look at and play in. My husband and I bought a really cool, double snow tube to give our girls for Christmas, and now I feel like it will be a complete letdown because they can't use it...yet.
We might not know when Mother Nature is finally going to dump some major snow on us, but I do know a lot of places in Wisconsin are covered with it, so that is where we must go.

I have some time off next week, so this morning I decided we need to take our girls somewhere they will be able to embark on the maiden voyage of their new snow tube, and onlyinyourstate.com says these are the 7 best hills to slide down in Wisconsin. So now I just need to decide, which one will we try first?
