As the home of the Hodag, Rhinelander has many Hodag statues around town at local businesses and public places.  Visit ExploreRhinelander.com to view the Hodag Finder Map and see how many you can find!  Don’t forget to make a stop to see the “World’s Largest” Hodag Statue located at the Chamber of Commerce and Visitor’s Center.

In addition to hodag statues, you can see a variety of beautiful murals on several buildings in town. Or, check out the lively arts scene.  View the latest art gallery display at ArtStart or watch a live musical performance or play at Nicolet College.  In the summer months, you can watch live music performances at the amphitheater at Hodag Park, or check out Hodag Country Festival to see performances by well-known country artists every July.

In the downtown area, marvel at the tiffany-inspired glass dome at the Oneida County Courthouse.  Drive by to see the dome lit up at night, or make a stop to see the beautiful details from the inside of the historic building.  View historic artifacts, items and more while learning about local history at the Rhinelander Historical Society or Pioneer Park Historical Complex.

Wherever your Northwoods adventure takes you, there’s lots to see. Make a plan to see these one-of-a-kind legendary sights for yourself!
