City of Wausau

You will experience that special hometown feeling when you visit the historical downtown Wausau and shop at one of the specialty stores on the Third Street pedestrian mall, listen to music in the summer or ice skate in the winter on the downtown public square, walk through the Marathon County Historical Museum, tour the Warren Historic District, shop at the Wausau Center Mall, attend a theater or music event at the Grand Theater, or visit the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum. 

There is always something going on no matter what the season is, be it a music concert, theater production, festival, parade, fair, art and craft show, or sports event. You will also enjoy the natural features of our area such as flowing rivers, lakes, maple and oak trees, Rib Mountain, and the many city parks that provide beauty and recreation throughout the four seasons.
