The Wisco Summer Spotlight, a web-based storytelling project around Wisconsin events, eateries and retail establishments, has officially launched.

This easy-to-use web-friendly app is packed with great stuff, things to do, recreation favorites, places to go, sports events, fairs, festivals, and more. We feature business spotlights, best-of lists, and reader picks. Click on the graphic below to take a peek.

Why advertise with us?

The trick to promoting events is to not just tell your potential attendees about your event, but show them what it’s about. Web-based stories achieve a high level of engagement with readers and we have an audience of over 60,000 people in the Milwaukee-Chicago area.
