Cross Country Ski Northwest Wisconsin
Northwest Wisconsin is a region rich in Nordic skiing tradition and history and blessed with some of the best cross country ski trails in the country. Not only are there literally hundreds of kilometers of groomed trails, but they represent a wide range of family-oriented to athletically challenging experiences in a setting of incredible natural beauty. With the region’s strong Scandinavian heritage, it was only natural that Nordic skiing took root in northwest Wisconsin. Farmers, loggers and settlers of Norwegian, Finnish and Swedish extraction used cross country skis for work and recreation dating back to the early part of the twentieth century. Whether you are a casual, occasional skier, an active enthusiast, or an avid racer, Northwest Wisconsin has something for you. From easy going and intimate classically groomed trails suitable for the whole family to the most significant Nordic superhighway in the nation, the American Birkebeiner Trail, the depth of choice is almost overwhelming.

LakePlace.com
Choosing a resort or a lodge for a getaway is about more than just convenience. Many lodges have a close connection to the history and importance of a place, and offer these treasures in a way that would be otherwise unknown to the casual researcher. Natural wonders and an incredible vision are hallmarks of memorable getaways, and should be taken into consideration when choosing a destination. Though the internet can be a great resource, consider calling the resort to discuss the finer points with someone who knows the area.Whether you plan to purchase a lake home, cabin, or lake lot, or you just want to get away for a weekend - LakePlace.com is a great place to start!

National Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame & Museum
Our museum collects, preserves and displays the artifacts of the sport of fresh water angling. The highlight of the museum complex is a landmark "Shrine to Anglers" which is a structure one-half city block long and four and one-half stories tall, of concrete, steel and fiberglass, hand-sculpted into the likeness of a leaping fish (Muskie). Its innards are a museum and its gaping open jaw accommodates about 20 persons or more as an observation platform. The landmark is surrounded by a quarter-acre nature pond.
