Hayward has perhaps the greatest word association a community could have - FUN. Throughout the year, people visit our area to experience the splendor of being 'Up North.' Whether it is enjoying our beautiful lakes for water sports and fishing, golfing a variety of courses in the Golf Capital of Wisconsin, exploring miles upon miles of trails for riding snowmobiles, ATVs, cross-country skiing, hiking or biking, this area is buzzing with activity. For those that simply want to relax, there is no better place to soak in the serene settings of nature that soothe the soul. When it comes to events, visitors and locals alike attend and enjoy events year 'round including the Honor the Earth Pow Wow, Musky Festival, the world-renowned American Birkebeiner cross country ski race, the Chequamegon Fat Tire Festival and the Annual Lumberjack World Championships, to name just a few. To complement these wonderful attractions, Hayward's Main Street has and will continue to be a central hub for those enjoying the Northwoods. Hayward will continually look to evolve and thrive, including the formation of a downtown business council. Winning the America's Main Streets contest could do incredible things for our businesses and residents, and we ask for your vote to prove how good we can be!
