This area of Wisconsin is bursting with things to do. If you’re an advocate of fast-moving motorsports, we have a speedway close by. If you’re more into quiet sports, you can be a spectator or participant in a variety of the more back-to-nature activities for which many people are drawn to our area. You’ll find an unexpected variety of entertainment, too, from theatre, to lumberjack competition to live music. Sometimes we think we just have it all… except for traffic jams. Not many of those here.
