Worth visiting for more than just Marshfield Winterfest, Marshfield is a fun city regardless of the season. Hit U.S. 10 or Highways 13, 80, or 97 to access what they call “Hub City,” named for both its historic hub for railroads and its location very close to the geographic center of Wisconsin.
Home to Marshfield Clinic, this city of 20,000 also hosts the Central Wisconsin State Fair (which includes the World’s Largest Round Barn) and features the Wildwood Zoo, the Blue Heron Brewpub, and a hopping main street in the form of Central Avenue. Marshfield is also along the Yellowstone Trail, part of the “Plymouth Rock to Puget Sound” highway that was among the first designated cross-country highways in the United States.
