Welcome to the Wisconsin Rapids Area!
The Wisconsin Rapids Area is known as cranberry country and proud of it! Join in celebrating our blossoming community and where the berries begin at the annual Cranberry Blossom Festival!
Centrally located a short drive from Chicago Minneapolis and all Wisconsin communities, our lakes and the Wisconsin River add to the beauty of our wooded area. We have abundant outdoor recreation: miles of trails to bike or hike, stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, canoeing, skiing, or just relaxing on the water, great golf, Central Wisconsin BMX, and the Wisconsin Rapids Rafters, a Northwoods League baseball team. Be sure to spend enough time to check out the new Wisconsin Rapids Recreation Complex and Aquatics Center! Float in the lazy river, enjoy the kids in the tot area, or experience more action on the slides and climbing wall! If you prefer to be indoors, we have creativity everywhere: museums celebrating our heritage, exceptional art, and theater, a vibrant music scene, and an award winning library with programs for any age! Don’t miss local flavor – from freshly brewed coffee and market egg rolls to some of the best farm to table meals and supper clubs!
