Merrill straddles the scenic Wisconsin River. Enjoy a walking tour of the city’s historic home district. The Lincoln County Courthouse, the T.B. Scott Library and the city’s three stone-arch bridges are also of interest to historians. West of town, Council Grounds State Park is a favorite with water enthusiasts. To the northeast, the Underdown Recreation Area trails please mountain bikers and cross-country skiers.
