Plan Your Trip

Welcome to Central Wisconsin! Discover the beauty of the Midwest as you explore the area. When you arrive for your stay in Wausau/Central Wisconsin you will be greeted with the amenities of a big city but with the charm and hospitality of a small town. 

Places to Stay
The Wausau area offers a multitude of options for your overnight stays.  For a more intimate setting, try one of our Bed & Breakfasts.  B&B's offer a unique experience allowing you to have a much more authentic experience - at the Stewart Inn in Wausau you can stay in the 1906 Prairie style mansion designed by George Maher which features original chandeliers, sconces, fireplaces, and stained glass windows.  The history of these buildings allow you to stay in comfort while exploring the roots of Wausau.  For a more traditional stay try one of the area's many hotels.  From budget hotels to the newly opened Hilton Garden Inn there are a variety of options. The newest Hilton located in Rib Mountain offers a beautiful interior with indoor and outdoor common areas and a breathtaking view of Granite Peak Ski Area. Finally, if you are in the market for fun head over to the Grand Lodge resort and waterpark and spend hours splashing through their indoor waterpark. 

Outdoor Activities
Wausau and central Wisconsin offer the best of both worlds, with big-city amenities and some of the best four-season outdoor recreation in the Midwest. No matter which season your visit is in the area offers outdoor recreation year long. In spring and summer check out some scenic hiking and biking and then in the winter try ripping down the slopes on skis or powering through the trails on your snowmobile. For those who want a less athletic visit take a tour of a large dairy farm or ginseng field to immerse yourself in Wisconsin's rich agriculture or head to one of the local parks or forests to sight see - truth be told Wisconsin has some fabulous areas for bird watching! No matter what your adventure - big or small - Central Wisconsin has it all!

Take in an exhibit at one of the Wausau area's art museums or sit back and enjoy a theatrical performance. If you are into history you can visit one of our many historical attractions, or learn more about Wausau's haunted past.
