MENOMONIE AREA ATTRACTIONS
Motel 6 - Menomonie, Wisconsin
Menomonie is nestled along the beautiful shores of Lake Menomonie and the banks of the scenic Red Cedar River in northwest Wisconsin. Steeped in logging history, and once dubbed "Queen of the Pinery," Menomonie today offers its residents livelihoods as diverse as agriculture, education, manufacturing, service businesses, recreation, and tourism.
The Mabel Tainter Memorial Theater is a fully functional Victorian era theater with a year round performing arts season featuring nationally recognized artists.
Experience Victorian elegance with a visit to the Wilson Place Museum. Wilson Place was constructed in 1859 by Captain William Wilson, founder of the city of Menomonie and Knapp, Stout & Co. A guided tour of the home provides visitors with a more detailed history of the home and its three generations of Wilsons. "Taste of Menomonie," a celebration of area restaurant specialties, fall produce, and the apple harvest festival is held on the grounds each autumn. Victorian Christmas is celebrated every year from mid-November until the end of December.
A gift shop carries quality Victorian reproductions and a unique variety of unusual gifts from around the world and hand-crafted items by local artists.
Menomonie also offers a 14.5-mile biking and hiking trail follows the banks of the river from Menomonie through the historic lumber town of Downsville, to the great Chippewa River Valley where it connects with the Chippewa River State Trail in the Dunnville Wildlife Area. The trail passes through a panorama of woodlands, prairies and soaring sandstone cliffs. In winter, the trail is groomed for cross-country skiing. Fishing and canoeing are enjoyed on the river as bald eagles soar overhead.
Hikers, cross-country skiers, bicyclists, joggers and snowshoers are invited to experience the four seasons of scenic river beauty and rural Wisconsin farmland. Bring along a picnic and a camera any time of the year, as there will always be time to relax and capture the beauty of the Red Cedar State Park Trail.
