Surrounding Towns:
Manitowish Waters - A nineteen minute drive up County Road H and then north on Hwy 51 takes you to Manitowish Waters. Manitowish Waters is a neat little Northern Wisconsin town. It has a very artsy feel to it with multiple artist studios in town. It is a very non-commercialized place. The Manitowish Waters Chain of Lakes is a clean chain that is quieter than some of the other chains. There are numerous trail systems in the Manitowish Waters area to explore and some great little places to grab a bite to eat. The population of the town is 565 people. Be sure to check out the Skiing Skeeters during the summer time. They put on free shows two nights a week all summer long.

Minocqua - If you drive nineteen minutes to the east on Hwy 47 you will be in Minocqua. The "island city" is probably the most "modern" of the towns in Northern Wisconsin. There are still plenty of the older mom and pop type of businesses, but they are sprinkled in with fast food restaurants and other national box store outlets. There is a wide variety of things to do and places to visit around Minocqua and the chain of lakes that surround the town is one of the most popular ones around. Being popular, it is also the busiest chain around. The town is considered a tourist hot spot and many summer weekends you will feel like you're back in the city with all the people...well, you will if you're coming from the Lac Du Flambeau area at least!
