"In the Center of it All"
The name St. Germain comes
from a French soldier, Jean François St. Germain, who came to this
region in the late 1600s. The area holds many great memories for me.
When I was 14, my best friend moved there at the end of the school
year. Over the summer, I went to see him… and it seemed as if
he had moved to the other side of the planet – it took that long to
drive there. But once there, I really didn’t want to leave.
It was sooooooo beautiful. Many years later I returned when
some close friends performed in the 4th of July parade
and I had a chance to see just how hospitable the town of St.
Germain could be… I had a ball! And then in the fall of 2003,
I went back for a Musky fishing tournament, and I fell in love with
St. Germain all over again.
The St. Germain Chamber of Commerce website sums it
up pretty well: “St. Germain Wisconsin is in the heart of
Wisconsin's Northwoods, surrounded by 1,300 lakes, the Chequamegon
National Forest, the Nicolet National Forest, the Northern Highland
- American Legion State Forest, the Oneida County and Vilas County
Forests.” Now I ask you – what more could you want?!
With excellent fishing, golfing and biking in the warm months,
fishing, snowmobiling and cross country skiing in the cold months,
and great lodging, shopping and dining all year ‘round… have you got
the best of all possible worlds or what?
Check out St. Germain and make your northern
Wisconsin vacation one to remember!
