Guide to Wausau

Wausau Apartments For Rent

In the heart of Wisconsin, a lake sparkles with scattered sunlight beneath a canopy of green leaves, providing a quiet oasis for residents and visitors lucky enough to discover the tiny city of Wausau. The Wisconsin River meanders through the city while Rib Mountain provides a scenic backdrop.

Lake Wausau is the star of the Wisconsin River Valley, providing swimming beaches, boating, fishing, canoeing, kayaking, and three large parks: Barker Stewart Island and Big Bull Fall Park, Bluegill Bay Park, and Big Eau Pleine Park.

When you find your new Wausau apartment to rent, be sure to take a moment and breathe in the fresh, crisp air. Then, take a long look at your lush, green surroundings. Just this will make you fall in love with your new hometown, but this central Wisconsin city has even more to offer – outdoor adventures, a charming downtown, and a strong economy, just for starters.

Things to Do in Wausau:

Wausau takes full advantage of its beautiful landscape, providing residents with 37 city parks. White Water Park hosts whitewater kayaking and canoeing events, while Sylvan Hills is most popular in winter due to its tubing hills. Marathon Park hosts the Wisconsin Valley Fair and it contains campgrounds, a curling barn, hockey rinks, an amphitheater, playgrounds, concessions, exhibition buildings, and a bandstand.

Rib Mountain State Park and the Granite Peak Ski Area are both located on Rib Mountain. Although not technically a mountain, it is one of the oldest geologic formations on earth and the fourth highest point in Wisconsin. The park contains about 1,500 acres and features an observation tower, camping, and concerts. Granite Peak Ski Area is the third tallest ski area in the Midwest. It features 74 snow runs and six terrain parks. It opened in 1937 and was one of the first ski areas in the country.

With so many parks to choose from, Wausau is the ideal location for outdoor adventures, including swimming, boating, whitewater rafting, fishing, ice fishing, tennis, golf, ice skating, cross-country skiing, mountain biking, hiking, downhill skiing, sledding, camping, mountain biking, and snowmobiling.

With such a beautiful landscape, Wausau inspires local artists. Enjoy the city’s budding art scene or head to Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum – an art museum that’s almost as beautiful outside as what it houses inside. The museum is located in a 1931 English Tudor estate stretched across four acres. The museum is famous for its annual “Birds in Art” exhibition.

The Marathon County Historical Museum is housed in the historic Cyrus Carpenter Yawkey House, a beautiful Classic Revival home that was built in 1900. The house museum features the furnishings of the early 20th century and includes stain-glass windows, servants’ rooms, a ballroom, a sun porch, and the ladies’ parlor. The grounds include formal gardens and a carriage house.

Historic Downtown Wausau features brick-lined streets and gorgeous architecture that wraps around a charming town square. Downtown is a terrific area filled with shops, art galleries, museums, theaters, locally-owned businesses, restaurants, pubs, bakeries, and cafes. For those who enjoy large malls, Wausau Center is also located downtown and features several major stores and specialty boutiques.

With a strong agricultural base, farms and orchards dot the Wausau landscape. The area produces apples, potatoes, corn, strawberries, and even ginseng. Summertime brings trips to local farms to pick your own produce, or to the Farmer’s Market, which runs from May to November.

Wausau offers vibrant nightlife, complete with live music in the various pubs and lounges you’ll find downtown. First, unpack your boxes and settle in. Then, leave your new Wausau apartment to explore the excitement that is nighttime in Downtown! During the summer, you can enjoy the Concerts on the Square concert series. The Grand Theater offers plays, concerts, ballets, and more. Other great locations include the Glass Hat, Polack Inn, Malarky’s Pub, and the Limericks Public House.

What to Consider When Moving to Wausau:

Wausau is the county seat of Marathon County and was first settled in the mid-1800s. The Andrew Warren Historic District features 62 homes and historic buildings, two of which were designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.

This fast-growing city was once referred to as the “Chicago of the north” because of its downtown development – including one of Wisconsin’s tallest buildings, the award-winning Dudley Tower, which stands 241 feet along the shore of the Wisconsin River. Industries in Wausau include manufacturing, insurance, and tourism. Wausau enjoys a low unemployment rate and steady economic growth.

Wausau is home to the University of Wisconsin-Marathon County, a two-year campus with about 1,400 students, and Northcentral Technical College, a two-year technical college. Younger students will attend the Wausau School District, which includes two high schools, an alternative high school, two middle schools, and 14 elementary schools.
