Home of Visionaries

In 2014, our community came together in the creation of 22 vision boards that focused on workforce, housing, Main Street, walk/bike path, arts, and more. More than 100 residents have participated in turning these ideas into reality. 

  • Early on, we celebrated three new speculative houses, a flourishing boutique scene, and the renovation of the Izaak Walton League Clubhouse.
  • In 2017, we celebrated the opening of a new Career & Technical Education Center where Day County students take hands-on construction and manufacturing classes. 
  • In 2020, we are celebrating a new walk/bike path connecting the healthcare complex to Main Street, new mural, and  new local recycling program.

Quality Health Care & Education

  • Our hospital is finishing up a $5 million renovation. It is part of the extended network of Sanford Health and includes a hospital, clinic, physical therapy, vision center, dentist, visiting specialists, long-term care, and independent living all under one roof.
  • Our commitment to education is evidenced by the quality of our facilities and measured by the successes of our students. Enrollment has surpassed 500 students K-12.
  • Seven higher education institutions are just 45 minutes away. Watertown's Lake Area Technical College was awarded the "Aspen Prize for Community College Excellence" in 2017.

Second to None in Recreation

  • Abundant wildlife has made Day County renowned for great hunting and fishing year-round. The area hosts several fishing tournaments and attracts thousands of avid hunters and outdoor enthusiasts annually. 
  • Golf, bowling, basketball, volleyball, and baseball teams provide recreational and social opportunities for youth and adults. We have several soccer fields, new swimming pool and baseball/softball complex featuring three diamonds. During the winter, a regional trail system offers 85 miles of snowmobile trails.
