A small, close-knit town with a passion for its growing cultural arts base, Three Lakes is dedicated to keeping its resources and values alive and growing. Within its 2009 Economic and Development Plan 2030, the town is moving from an economy based on tourism revenue “into a diversified infrastructure founded on the four cornerstones of technology, tourism, agriculture, and the cultural arts.” From its inherent agricultural base in potatoes and cranberries, to its ideal location on Wisconsin’s largest fresh water chain of lakes and being situated in the Nicolet/Chequamegon National Forest, natural resources are highly diversified and lushly abundant.
The town boasts a wide variety of broadband services allowing for both commerce and residential vast Internet access. This global opportunity is available while existing in a small community environment rich in the benefits such as a virtually crime-free environment, a high quality of living, pure resources and much more.
Winter also affords events that welcome everyone to enjoy the camaraderie of fellow enthusiasts and community members.
