While you are staying with us during your Wisconsin vacation, there are plenty of things to do and see. Throughout the year, our area is host to a number of special events such as the Iola Car Show, Midwest Renewable Energy Association (MREA), Waupaca’s Strawberry Fest, and the EAA Fly-In at Oshkosh.

A night out on the town might include a casual dinner in a local pub or a romantic table for 2 with a lakeside view. Whatever you are craving, see what our local restaurants have to offer.

Waupaca has something to offer everyone, no matter what your hobby: ice fishing, shopping, biking, hiking, dining, antiquing, or just relaxing. Just outside The Apple Tree Lane’s front door is the Crystal River that flows from the Chain 'o Lakes. Take a canoe trip down the river, fish in the lakes, or take a part in any number of water sports from boating to swimming. Enjoy winter skiing at Hartman Creek State Park, Iola Winter Sports Club, Nordic Mountain or the Granite Peak Ski Area, or visit during any season to experience the Ice Age Trail. This national scenic trail provides a number of activities throughout the year.

The local Waupaca Area Chamber of Commerce has many listings for upcoming activities.
