Northwest Wisconsin is the region that is often looked at as one of the state's premier four season vacation lands. Bordered on the north by the rugged shoreline of beautiful Lake Superior, this is a land of hundreds of lakes and streams, the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest, The St. Croix National Scenic Waterway, and the Apostle Islands National Seashore.
Year round activities include sightseeing, wildlife viewing/bird watching, hiking, biking, and everything the Northwoods of Wisconsin has to offer.

Summer is a time to relax and enjoy the pleasant weather and slow pace on uncrowded trails and lakes. Fishing for musky, northern pike, and trout is extremely popular and productive as well. Wildlife enthusiasts and photographers will enjoy the scenic beauty Northwest Wisconsin offers.
Chippewa Falls certainly has no shortage of things to do. While visiting, it would be worthwhile to visit Lake Wissota State Park, just north of the city.

Willow River State Park, with breathtaking waterfalls and hiking, biking and ski trails, is just outside of the city as are four challenging golf courses.
Located on the shore of Lake Superior and gateway to the 22 Apostle Islands, Bayfield is the place to be for visitors who want to explore the natural beauty of the region, experience arts and culture, and indulge in the bounty of local fruits and berries. Lake Superior offers world-class freshwater sailing, fishing, scuba diving and swimming.
