Rhinelander is a typical "big" northwoods town. The town was settled around the river and is more industrial in nature than the other towns on this site. Rhinelander is the Oneida County seat and is "Home of the Hodag", where the HODAG music festival, Oneida County Fair, and Potato Fest is held every year. There are a lot of fast food places and other chain stores in town including a Menards and a Home Depot. There are some nice lakes outside of town and the Boom and Moen Lake Chains are part of the town.

Eagle River - Thirty minutes north of Rhinelander is Eagle River. Eagle River is the original vacation destination of the northwoods. It is most famous for it's 28 lake chain of lakes which is the biggest freshwater chain in the world. The town has all the modern conveniences but retains a small town mom and pop feel.

Three Lakes - Thirty minutes northeast of town lies Three Lakes. Three Lakes is a quaint laid back little northwoods town that was voted the best town in America a few years back.

Minocqua - Minocqua is a thirty minute drive up Hwy 47 (yes, Rhinelander is 30 minutes from everywhere it seems). Minocqua has the most going on of all the northwoods towns. Tons of places to eat, tons of outdoor activities, tons of people to watch doing people things if people-watching is entertaining for you.

Times are approximate. I just took the time from the center of town.
