Eagle River Is Another Cool Town

Budget Travel continues to find “cool” towns throughout the country for senior adventurers to enjoy…and Eagle River fits in well. The Annual Eagle River Cranberry Fest kicks off the fall season each October, while the World Championship Snowmobile Derby, Annual Labatt Blue USA Adult Pond Hockey Championships and Klondike Days occur at the beginning of the new year in January and February.  For a small community, Eagle River is loaded with businesses.

What makes a Coolest Small Town?

The coolest towns must be small with a population under 10,000. They also need that indescribable something: independent shops, a sense of energy, an epic backyard, culture, delicious coffee. In other words, cool doesn’t necessarily mean quaint: Budget Travel is looking for towns with an edge and a heart.

Seniors Enjoy Eagle River: Where Great Times Come With the Territory

It’s called the Snowmobile Capital of the World and is home to “The Eagle River 500.” This “cool town” is the heart of Northwoods fishing. The lakes are known for their trophy-sized musky, but senior fisherpeople are also bound to catch walleye and bass. When the leaves begin to turn and the fall foliage is brilliant, it is an excellent time to catch musky. You can send for your Free Guidebook on Eagle River online.
