The Village of Amherst

Located along the picturesque Tomorrow River, Amherst, Wisconsin is a progressive Village striving to preserve its small town flavor while taking advantage of those opportunities for change and improvement that are present today. This is a unique community reflecting a commitment to nurture the arts and the outdoors. The wide variety of activities and events chronicled in Amherst's  monthly newspaper, Our Community Spirit, underscore the efforts of the Village's Jensen Library, numerous church and youth organizations, the Lettie Jensen Community Center, the Amherst Fair Board, the Amherst Fire District, and the Tomorrow River Lions & Lionesses, as well as highlight the academic and athletic achievements of our children attending the Tomorrow River School District's K - 12 campus within the Village. From the numerous parks and the scenic Mill Pond shoreline to the vibrant Main Street and Christy Street businesses on out to the development in the Village's Business Park, Amherst is an invitation waiting to be accepted.

Stevens Point Area Convention & Visitors Bureau

Conveniently located in the center of the state, the Stevens Point area is a recreationalist playground in the heart of central Wisconsin. Fish the diverse rivers of the Wisconsin River and the backwaters, including the 6,830–acre Lake DuBay, a hotbed for walleyes, northern pike, muskies, and bass. Paddle the backwaters and sloughs, trout streams, and smaller lakes for more variety. On land, leisurely follow one of many great trails. Explore 26 miles of the Green Circle Trail, hike at Standing Rocks County Park, bike the limestone-covered Tomorrow River State Trail or discover hidden trails within Schmeeckle Reserve. The Stevens Point Area has no shortage of great recreational trails but what makes these trails even better is the ability to connect from one trail system to the next with ease.
