The most populous of the seven local communities at 39,213 people, the City of Wausau has more to offer than other communities several times its size. Watch a kayak competition at Whitewater Park — a course cut from the Wisconsin River. Take a walk through the Andrew Warren Historic District. Visit the Woodson Art Museum, one of the top art museums in the state. Take in a show at the historic Grand Theater, one of the hardest working theaters in the Midwest.

Wausau's motto is 'Welcome Home' and has events and festivals throughout the year that draw a loyal following. Pencil in Wisconsin Woodchucks baseball games, the Wisconsin Valley Fair, Big Bull Falls Blues Festival presented by Wausau Area Events, one of the concerts or other regular events at The 400 Block downtown, and the celebrated Artrageous Weekend.

Wausau's most noted shopping district is located in its charming and thriving downtown. The Wausau Center Mall anchors one end of downtown Wausau's River District — lined with specialty stores, restaurants, events and attractions.
