Hello! We are planning our move for June 2008. I was born in WI, but we've been in CA for 15 years now and my husband is a CA native. We have 3 kids, 6, 4,and 2, and one on the way I am worried that WI may be quite a shock to them (we do visit 1-2 times a year). Right now my older 2 kids play AYSO soccer, gymnastics, horseback riding, and dance. Are there activities like that in the Wausau area?

Yes there are activities like that in Wausau. A new gymnastic studio just opened and there are a number of dance studios. Our friends use Heidi's. There are also soccer leagues, baseball, hockey etc.

Default kids in Wausau

We just moved here and I am pleasantly surprised by the amount of activities for kids year round. If your kids ski... or would like to try... there is a perfect little ski hill in town with very nice bunny trails. There is also a tubing hill which we LOVED called Sylvan Hill.
My daughter also likes to horse-back ride... and we have had some trouble finding a place that is close enough to pull it off (someone told me to check out Merrill)... but are working on it. Dance is pretty big here, as I understand it. There's the new place someone mentioned (that I am definitely going to check out, by the way) and there is also a place called Busy Bodies (or something like that) that I have heard is great for the kids. As soon as mine get completely over the nasty bugs that have been going around... I'm on it!

There is also a little studio downtown where the kids can paint pottery that is nice. We have been there several times.

I moved to Wausau 11 years ago from Cleveland, Ohio, and I've grown to really love it. We have 2 young children, and it's a great place for kids. Family friendly activities abound all year, no matter what your interests. We live right across the street from Memorial Park on the Southeast Side, and we make good use of it! There are a number of dance studios in the area, the Y offers all kinds of gymnastics classes, and there are several soccer clubs in the area. The schools are excellent. We're really happy here!

Shoveling is a great winter activity in the Wausau area. By each child a shovel and some gloves and a hat and they will be busy most of the time, Do not forget to shovel the roof or you will get ice damming.

Cheers and enjoy the weather. It is similiar to California, just about 80 to 120 degrees colder in the winter

Too funny!

"Right now my older 2 kids play AYSO soccer, gymnastics, horseback riding, and dance. Are there activities like that in the Wausau area?"

There's all those activities and more. Your kids and you will love all the variety of stuff to do here. Very family orientated. If you like skiing, sledding, hiking, fishing, canoeing, camping, water parks etc it's all here. I would say there is just about something for everyone.

Maybe this link can help
