Hurley, Wisconsin truly is a vacationer's paradise, and offers a great variety of year round entertainment. In the Winter, the snowmobiler can enjoy 450 miles of beautifully groomed scenic trails. Hurley was designated one of the "Top 25" snowmobiling vacation areas in North America, and a five-time winner of Snowgoer Magazine's "#1 Nightlife" award. Top all this off with a fifteen minute drive to any one of five major ski hills, or miles of groomed cross-country ski trails, and the visitor can have the ultimate winter sport experience.

For history buffs, a visit to Iron County Historical Museum is a must. Here the visitor will gain insight into Hurley's colorful past and see what made Hurley one of the most famous mining and logging towns of all time and earned the area one of Wisconsin's most recent designations as a state "Heritage Tourism" area. Visitors also have the opportunity to take part in Hurley's "Living History Walking Tour", offered periodically throughout the spring and summer months, featuring a costumed cast of characters performing a variety of skits depicting logging, mining, and railroad history, as well as some of the more colorful aspects of Hurley's heritage, concluding with a fun-filled burlesque show.

Summer visitors can enjoy great deep sea fishing aboard one of the many charter boats operating out of nearby Saxon Harbor on Lake Superior, or fish a smaller "pond", the popular Gile Flowage, famous for great walleye fishing. Great hiking trails lead to more than a dozen spectacular waterfalls throughout Iron County, and ATV and mountain biking enthusiasts can enjoy over 100 miles of wilderness trails. The golfer can enjoy 18 holes of championship golf on the panoramic Eagle Bluff Golf Course.
