Madeline Island – How to Get Here
I have lots of real estate friends all over the United States (and a few overseas) who periodically write me and say “love your photos of Madeline Island. Where exactly is this place?”
So I figured the best way to explain where our northwest Wisconsin office is located would be to blog about it.
The location of Madeline Island is pinpointed by a red arrow on the map below, which includes most of the continental U.S. Our Island is located on the south shore of Lake Superior in the Apostle Islands, close to the northernmost point in Wisconsin. Within a range of approximately five hundred miles of Madeline Island are several major urban areas, including Minneapolis and Saint Paul, Madison (WI), Milwaukee, Chicago and Winnipeg. Also nearby are Omaha NE, Des Moines IA, Duluth MN, Fargo ND and Thunder Bay, Ontario. Within a reasonable day’s driving distance of Madeline Island are Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa, Illinois, Michigan, Indiana, Northern Missouri, Northeastern Kansas and the rest of Wisconsin, plus the Canadian provinces of Ontario and Manitoba. Ontario is a mere 100 miles or so to the north of us.
A larger, more magnified map of the upper Midwestern United States (below) gives a clearer picture of our location.
