The Wausau area is a thriving metropolitan area ideally located in the center of the state. The community offers a full complement of arts and culture, an exceptional educational system complete with a two-year UW-extension, two private 4 year institutions and a regional technical college, an assortment of unique restaurants, a variety of popular national chain stores as well as unique boutique shopping experiences, a host of four-season recreational opportunities and an easily accessible regional airport with daily flights to Minneapolis and Detroit.
During the warmer months residents enjoy numerous fairs and festivals, the local farmers market, concerts in the park, a day-trip to the aquatic center, catching a Wausau Woodchucks game or just relaxing with friends and family at one of the numerous lakes and parks.
When the weather turns colder, we turn to the slopes of Granite Peak, a premier Midwestern downhill ski resort, hit the trails on cross-country skis or snowshoes, take the family to a local sledding hill, catch a broadway show at the Grand Theater, visit one of the local micro-breweries or spend the day at our indoor water park. There's always something new to explore.
Beautiful, safe and affordable neighborhoods with friendly people make Central Wisconsin a GREAT place to live and work.
