The small city of Wausau stands on the Wisconsin River in the state of Wisconsin in the United States' Great Lakes area, just south of the Canadian border. The city is served by two local airports - Central Wisconsin Airport in nearby Mosinee, and Wausau Downtown Airport, only a mile south of the city centre. If you've hired a car in Wausau you're only a short drive away from the beauty of nearby Rib Mountain - with its scenic trails and a very popular ski slope complex - as well as plenty of green space and many galleries and museums to enjoy.
If you pick up a hire car you'll be able to explore Wausau and its surroundings. Wausau itself is a native Indian word meaning 'faraway place' and the city itself spreads across both sides of the river. You'll be able to drive to a selection of parks, forests and nature reserves on the outskirts or learn more about the area's agricultural heritage at rural attractions, like the modern Van Der Geest dairy farm that's open to the public or the Antique Farm Machinery Museum. Look out too for the Yawkey House Museum, a fine example of a wealthy timber trader's house from 100 years ago.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
