Wisconsin is divided into 72 counties that vary in size, population, geography, and local culture. Here's an overview of the counties that make up America's Dairyland:

The most populous county is Milwaukee County, home to the city of Milwaukee and its surrounding suburbs. Other large counties include Dane County (Madison), Waukesha County (Waukesha), Brown County (Green Bay), Racine County (Racine), and Kenosha County (Kenosha). These counties comprise the major metropolitan areas of Wisconsin.

Some of the more rural counties with small populations include Florence, Menominee, Forest, Iron, Pepin, and Rusk counties, primarily located in northern Wisconsin. These forested and lake-dotted counties rely on timber, mining, agriculture, and outdoor tourism.

Along Lake Michigan, counties like Door, Kewaunee, Manitowoc, Sheboygan, and Ozaukee comprise the lakeshore region known for its waterfront cities and villages. Washington, Dodge, Jefferson, and Walworth counties make up the suburbanizing counties outside Milwaukee.

Central Wisconsin is known for its farmland and rolling hills. Major counties in this region include Portage, Wood, Marathon, Clark, and Adams counties. Common crops include corn, soybeans, hay, and cranberries.

The western side of the state along the Mississippi River is rugged and forested. Major counties like La Crosse, Trempealeau, Buffalo, and Pierce counties have a mix of farming, timber, recreation, and industrial economies.

So Wisconsin's 72 counties run the gamut from densely populated urban centers to remote wilderness areas, all contributing to the state's rich agricultural and cultural heritage. The counties serve to provide government services tailored to their distinct communities.
