Rhinelander, Wisconsin

 
A family vacation in Rhinelander Wisconsin is all about water. Float past forest and farmland on the Upper Wisconsin River. Kayak or canoe the Tomahawk, a more challenging river to run. Waterski or boat on 232 lakes. Enjoy birding at the wetland Thunder Lake Wildlife Area. And if you fancy fishing, cast a line in rivers, lakes and streams. Even history buffs will find themselves focused on water. Together with tourism, logging and papermaking have most shaped the history of this Wisconsin Northwoods hamlet.
