Why do we love the Rhinelander Area?
Posted on Tuesday, May 7, 2013
It’s National Tourism Week, the perfect time to tell you the reasons why we think the Rhinelander Area is one of Wisconsin’s best tourism destinations.
We’ve got the Hodag! No other community in Wisconsin and the world can call itself home to the toothy, green phenom known as the Hodag.
We’ve got the muskies! Rhinelander’s lakes are home to some of Wisconsin’s biggest muskies.
We’ve got the Kovac Planetarium! – This wooden globe-style planetarium is one of the only of its kind on the planet.
We’ve got trails! – Some of the best biking and hiking trails in the Northwoods are in the Rhinelander Area.
We’ve got great events! – Throughout the year, the Rhinelander Area hosts festivals, fairs and more. Don’t miss all the fun this summer!
Can you tell that we’re pretty enthusiastic about all that the Rhinelander Area has to offer? Come on up to Hodag Country this summer and see what we’re talking about.
