Active Summer Festivals

Lumberjack World Championships
Slide 1 of 13

Dates: July 25-27

Cost: $52 for a three-day adult pass

Why Go: Called the "Olympics of the Forest," this event features competitions in pole climbing, log rolling, sawing and chopping. It attracts lumberjacks and lumberjills from across the United States, as well as from countries including Canada, Australia, the Czech Republic and New Zealand. If the event leaves you itching for the great outdoors, head to nearby Chequamegon National Forest for camping, paddling and hiking.

Where To Stay: Located in downtown Hayward, the impeccably maintained McCormick House offers great breakfast service and more luxury than nearby cabins.
