If you’ve never been to the Stevens Point Area (Portage County, Wisconsin), you’ll be amazed by what you find. It might appear an unassuming blend of rural and urban. But, dig a little deeper, and meet the local makers behind the scenes. Check out the world’s longest-running renewable energy fair, test your knowledge with the world’s largest trivia contest, learn more about the nation’s first conservation education major, or grab a plate and hit the first refrigerated salad bar (in a classic Wisconsin supper club, of course!).
Venture into the communities within Portage County and you’ll find the natural resources mixed with arts and culture, from expansive murals (150 feet wide!) to the Stevens Point Sculpture Park that connects to the Green Circle Trail. The Green Circle Trail is a popular 27-mile trail that connects to more than 45 miles of additional trails to explore.
Come hungry, and explore local flavor, where farm to fork is not a passing fad. Order up Eggs Benedict crepes and single-origin coffee at Ruby voted the best coffeehouse in the state by Food & Wine. Eat your way around the state’s oldest farmers market in downtown Stevens Point. Don’t skip the fresh-made smoked gouda pretzels from Main Grain Bakery to bring along as a snack to tour the iconic Stevens Point Brewery – or venture to the barrel-aging giant Central Waters Brewing Company. Or, head to the mixology bar at Great Northern Distilling for a hand-crafted cocktail. Plan a weekend exploring the craft beer, wine, and spirits of the Central Wisconsin Craft Collective here.
