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.
