Discover Wisconsin Shines a Light on the Best of Waupaca: From the Chain to Main

Discover Wisconsin, the state’s leading media brand and tourism TV show, features Waupaca!  Waupaca is a city with a rich history, surrounded by natural beauty, and brimming with four seasons of fun. Waupaca is small-town pride with big opportunities all the way from the Chain of Lakes to vibrant Main Street.

In this episode of Discover Wisconsin, host Alex Wehrley begins her adventure with a tour around the crystal-clear Chain O’Lakes on the Chief Waupaca sternwheeler. She then takes an opportunity to learn about the historic Danes Hall, before wandering down the newly renovated Main Street to explore some of the unique shops, and hear from local business owners about what makes Waupaca a thriving, vibrant community. This small town has no shortage of activities and a plethora of national and global companies based in the area that provide unique offerings in making Waupaca home. Later, this episode highlights the Waupaca Area Triathlon, Arts on the Square, and one of the most popular music venues in the county. Don’t miss out on Alex trying a few things for the very first time, like snowshoeing at Hartman Creek State Park, and curling with one of America’s oldest curling clubs.
