March In(doors) to Eagle River

Spring weather can be a bit unpredictable in our neck of the woods. While outdoor winter activities are melting away with any remaining snow and summer fun is still a few months away, the great indoors of the Eagle River area can appeal to anyone.

Much like flowers and foliage blossom each spring, the Eagle River downtown is bursting with new life. There are Northwoods gift shops nestled among unique clothing and jewelry stores. Museums and indoor attractions can help make your Up North experience unforgettable. And restaurants serve as the perfect place to share those experiences for the first time—of many times—with your travel companions as they become fabled memories.

Sure, we’re known for lakes and outdoor activities. But there is a whole indoor world of fun waiting for you in the Eagle River area. Let’s browse through some of the inventory.

A Little Shop Therapy

Sometimes a day downtown to enjoy some shopping is just what the doctor ordered. No matter what you’re looking for, chances are an Eagle River area shop has it. Premier clothing and apparel for yourself or a loved one can be found at Frederick’s Corner Shoppe and Glik’s, among others. Let The Hiker Box inspire your next time on the trails or that camping trip you’re planning later this year. Do-it-yourselfers need look no further than Eagle Craft & Hobby. Need a fun game the whole family can enjoy during your trip and later at home? Check out Grandma’s Toy Box. If you know someone who cherishes vintage décor, Lyn’s Antiques is just one of the reputable places to stop in town.

Cultural Cornerstones

The history and culture of Eagle River run as deep as its lakes. And thanks to some special people and organizations in the area, there are places to learn about it and explore it tangibly.

The Northwoods Children’s Museum is perfect for families who are looking for a place that offers learning and interaction. This is no ordinary museum; this facility offers hands on experiences that you’ll talk about for years. For the art-curious crowd, The Warehouse Art Center provides free and low-cost classes so you can try your hand at a masterpiece. Fans of the theater can take in a show thanks to the Headwaters Council for the Performing Arts and Three Lakes Center for the Arts. History buffs will love the Eagle River Historical Society Museum. But be sure to make an appointment between Labor Day and Memorial Day.

Some Indoor Adrenaline

Need an activity to bridge the gap between snowmobiling and ATVing? They might not be trails or routes, but there are plenty of indoor options to get your heart pumping in the Eagle River area. Test your marksmanship skills while throwing axes at Kickin’ Axe Up North. If you’re bringing along smaller travelers, step right next door to see if you can solve the puzzle in an hour at Northwoods Escape Room. And for the 21+ adventurer, Lake of the Torches Resort Casino can provide a thrill.

Indoor Fun for Anyone

When it’s that season after winter, but still not quite spring, we’ve got you covered—literally. From downtown shopping to immersive indoor activities, the Eagle River area has an experience you’ll want to see for yourself. Who knows, it just might become part of your Up North tradition.
