Road trip: what should we check out in Wisconsin and Minnesota?

My friends and I are taking a leisurely road trip from Chicago to a cabin near the Ontario-Manitoba border in late August. On the way, we'd like to check out Milwaukee, Madison, Duluth, and (on the way back) the Twin Cities. What are some unmissable things to do en route? We like:
- small towns in between, and their unique attributes
- thrift stores, used book stores
- bars, drinking holes
- live music, dance nights (indie, disco, whatever)
- notable cheap motels
- also, nature
