Fall brings with it a few rainy days, but it that won’t spoil a visit to Eagle River.
One of my family favorites is the Northwood’s Children’s Museum. It offers interactive exhibits with a hands-on environment where children can play, explore and learn while having fun. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself engaged in some of this play and exploration too!
Just a short drive outside of Eagle River is the Three Lakes Winery. They produce fruit wines and are best known for their Cranberry wine. Visitors can see wine being made during a winery tour, sip a sample and shop the gourmet gift shop. This is also a kid friendly tour.
Eagle River has a lot of interesting history behind it. Stop in the Eagle River Historical Museum to find artifacts from the railroads, logging camps, and Native Americans that used to be in this area.
Along with this history you may be surprised to find that the Wisconsin Hockey Hall of Fame is in Eagle River. The first high school hockey team was formed in 1926 in order to promote winter tourism in Eagle River. Shortly after, in 1933, a wood dome stadium was built and still stands and operates today. This is the home of the Wisconsin Hockey Hall of Fame, which honors outstanding individuals responsible for the development, growth and success of amateur ice hockey in the state of Wisconsin.
Try one of these indoor attractions in the area on you next visit to Wild Eagle Lodge.
