Weekly Plan for the Northwoods

When we go on vacation, we do A LOT of prepping to make sure we don’t missing something really fun and unique at our destination. There is nothing worse than coming home from a vacation and seeing on instagram or facebook that you missed an epic adventure spot.

This post is going to focus on a weekly schedule for your visit to the Wisconsin Northwoods. We wrote it as if you are staying at our Resort in Eagle River Wisconsin. This will give you an idea of things to do in Eagle River Wisconsin.

We wanted to give you a weekly plan – which can be adjusted for weather. This is a lot of the must dos according to us – we know that not everyone is into the same things that we are.
