What to do on a rainy day

Sure, we’re a pretty outdoorsy bunch, so we can tough out a rainy day or two with the best of them, but even when Mother Nature is keeping us inside, we can still find plenty to see and do around here.

Soak in Some Local Culture

Discover the history of Eagle River with a trip to the area’s Historical Society Museum. Get the kids involved with twenty four hands-on exhibits at the Northwoods Children’s Museum. Take in a performance at the Headwaters Council for the Performing Arts or an art class at The Warehouse. Or, find the perfect book to cozy up with at the Walter E. Olson Memorial Library.

Sample Local Brews

Stop by the Taphouse at Tribute Brewing Co. to try some of Eagle River’s finest and freshest taps. Catch up over a porter, an IPA or one of their more adventurous creations, like the Blueberry Train Wheat Ale.

Get Moving

Still have the itch to be active even though it’s raining? Get your blood pumping at a health and fitness center. Check for yoga classes, get your steps in on the treadmill or pump up to make reeling in that big catch a breeze.

Take Your Chances at the Casino

The Lake of the Torches Resort Casino has more than 800 slot machines, and game tables for Blackjack and Craps. It’s an even bet that all that gaming will work up an appetite, so make sure to stop by their bar and grill for a bite.

Stop by a Bar & Grill

Eat the catch of the day, catch up with some locals, or just enjoy a classic northwoods old-fashioned. There’s no shortage of good Bar & Grills up here.

Take on a Challenge

See if your group can conquer the Northwoods Escape Room or test your hand eye coordination with some axe throwing at Kickin Axe Up North.
