SkyWest Airlines Touches Down in Rhinelander!

SkyWest Airlines has touched down in Rhinelander, Wis., home of the mythical Hodag, Rhinelander’s legendary woodland creature! With twice-daily Delta flights between Rhinelander Oneida County Airport (RHI) and Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP), Rhinelander passengers now have access to destinations world-wide, including exotic warmer climes of the Caribbean, Cancun and Miami.

Rhinelander visitors have access to a landscape rich in forest, lakes and trails. It is one of Wisconsin’s top winter destinations, offering outstanding snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and ice fishing, as well as the best shopping and lodging in the Northwoods.

All of these activities and more are available during the exciting Lions Fisheree and Winter Festival this February 9th and 10th. This annual event is packed full of fun winter activities including ice fishing, a broomball tournament, snowshoe races and much more with events sure to please everyone in the family.

Rhinelander is also home to the legendary woodland creature, the Hodag. The mythical creature was created by Rhinelander pioneer and timber cruiser Gene Shepard in 1896. Although it originated as a hoax, the Hodag became a local legend and the symbol of the city. Many local businesses, as well as the Rhinelander High School sports teams, are named for the Hodag.

For those with discriminating pallets for upscale microbrews, the Rhinelander Brewing Company offers their original Export Lager and Craft Brews as unique as the Hodag. Stop by just about anywhere locally and try the wildly popular varieties from the Chocolate Bunny Stout to the Mystical Jack Traditional Ale.
