Labor Day weekend often represents the last unofficial summer weekend of the year. Make the most of it with a trip to Greater Wausau and create memories to last a lifetime. 


Things to Do:

Rent Kayaks

DC Everest Park Boat Launch

The new self-serving station at DC Everest Park makes it easy to get out and paddle calm waters. Download the app, scan to unlock the kayak storage locker, and grab the kayak, paddle, and life jacket. You can be on the water in a matter of minutes!


Go on a Mural Tour
Welcome Wausau Mural

Wausau has a variety of murals, mainly located around downtown. Mosey streets on the search for showstopping art pieces strategically place on building sides and alleyways. Get your camera ready to remember these remarkable pieces of art later. 


Catch a Ski Show
Water Walkers Pyramid on Lake Wausau

The Water Walkers perform their last season show on Labor Day at 5:30 p.m. on Lake Wausau. You can expect to hear entertaining announcing and toe-tapping music, all while skiers of all ages perform tricks on the water in dazzling costumes. 


Challenge Yourself in the Bull Falls Grand Fondo
Grand Fondo Racers

This event offers a unique opportunity to enjoy a road ride through the peaceful, rural landscapes of central Wisconsin while also supporting a great cause. A portion of all registration fees will go towards Wisconsin cancer charities, so you can feel good about making a difference while doing something you love.


Places to Eat:

The Velvateen Plum Rooftop

Soak in the last bits of summer on a patio. The Velveteen Plum recently opened and offers Wausau's First rooftop bar and restaurant featuring Latin flair. 

The lively patio at Sconni's Ale House & Eatery makes for the perfect outdoor dining atmosphere. Lounge seating, covered bar stools, or sunny hightops can accommodate whatever you feel. 


WOW is the perfect patio for waterfront dining downtown. Surrounded by the Riverlife trail and park, it's ideal for the whole family. 


Get creamy soft serve from Briq's along the river. Enjoy a cold treat as you walk along the river, or let the kids climb the playground equipment. 


Soak in a piece of history at the old iconic Milwaukee Road Train Station while sipping a perfectly crafted cocktail or ice cream drink at Timekeeper Distillery.
