At the heart of the Wisconsin River Valley is Stevens Point, a riverside city that blends industry, academia, historic sites and natural beauty. The University of Wisconsin- Stevens Point campus includes the Schmeeckle Reserve, 280 acres of solitude and a great place for walking, jogging, biking, fishing and wildlife watching. The reserve’s nature center houses exhibits and dioramas as well as the Wisconsin Conservation Hall of Fame. The Reserve is a trailhead for the Green Circle State Trail, 30.5 miles of hiking and biking around the city, including the Stevens Point Sculpture Park.
Downtown, more than sixty buildings comprise the Mathias Mitchell Public Square-Main Street Historic District, a delightful walking tour. The city is the home of Sentry Insurance, owner of the SentryWorld Sports Center, a world-class golf course and racquet-sports facility open to the public. Founded in 1857, the Stevens Point Brewery is a must-stop for a tour and tasting.
