There is more to do in Minocqua than any other town in the Northwoods. It's a very popular tourist destination and thus there are a lot of local businesses that cater to the tourist crowd. The Minocqua Chain of Lakes is a really nice, clean chain. If you're the type who wants it really quiet, it is probably the wrong chain for you as there is always some level of activity. There are many great spots to eat in and around town and a lot of the non chain lakes in the area are really nice and a lot more quiet than the chain. Minocqua has a lot of national chain stores and fast food places that you don't find in the other towns in Northern Wisconsin.
