The Portage center is about the area of Portage Amtrak Station and 3 miles northeast of Cascade Mountain Ski Area.

It's a significant responsibility, being the spot “where the North begins,” which is Portage's motto. The Wisconsin town gets its name from the portage that runs between the Fox and Wisconsin Rivers, which explorers Louis Joliet and Jacques Marquette discovered in 1673 during their quest for a route to the Mississippi River. Because the area was essential to travelers, traders, and explorers, it was a natural spot to form the community that became the town. More from this guide...

Bar Chart: Upcoming 20 Days of Portage Hotel Rates

Rates shown are nightly rates before taxes and do not necessarily reflect all Portage, WI discounts available. The chart reflects the cheapest Portage hotel for each day and each star rating category.

The region was once home to Native Americans, fur traders, and teams leading expeditions throughout the Midwest. Today, its thriving population remains as diverse as its origins. Its history includes not just the uncharted years, but also the building of Fort Winnebago, an economic and strategic endeavor. It's impossible to take a step without treading on the past.

Exploring is a must. This area of Wisconsin consists of grasslands and prairies, with Portage City right in the middle of it all. From the historic downtown district to the Portage Canal, this is a slice of Midwest heaven you won't want to leave.

Seasonality of Portage, WI

Visiting Portage at the perfect time — for you — is one of the keys to an idyllic holiday. The humid continental climate of the city ensures a robust representation of all four seasons, but wintertime is what you expect from Wisconsin. Zero-degree nights aren't terribly common, but it's frigid in December, January, and February. Still, freezing temperatures lend themselves to ice fishing, snowmobiling, and other outdoor activities. Another perk of visiting during the coldest season is the ability to save on your room rates.

You can also save in spring and fall, which are the embodiment of transitional seasons in Portage. The spring air is just a little humid. It distinctly warms up in April. In contrast, the fall air turns crisp. By the end of September and the beginning of October, ghost stories make their way around playgrounds in whispers, and every breath has a bite to it. Late in the spring and early autumn, you can still mess around in the rivers, as well.

Thanks to 70-80-degree temperatures and high humidity, Portage summers are a dream. It's a bit rainier throughout the summer, but there are worse things to do than watching a thunderstorm rain down over the prairie. Besides, a dozen times a year, the temperatures crack 90 degrees on the thermometer.

Save on summer rates by booking early. Compare which hotels offer the most value. Check to see if any accommodations in the area offer discounts. Are you willing to bed down outside of Portage? That presents even more options. Nearby Wisconsin Dells is the most popular pick due to its abundance of water parks. You can buy tickets to Noah's Ark Water Park, Mt. Olympus Water and Theme Park, and Kalahari Water Park, all when you book your room.

In the evenings, slip down to the lounge in the lobby and sit before the crackling fire.

At the Hilton Garden Inn Wisconsin Dells, adventure awaits at nearby Timbavati Wildlife Park. Chilling out happens in your room, where you can have a Jacuzzi tub right in the corner. Enjoy the state-of-the-art gym equipment in the fitness center, go swimming after you soak in the tub, and grab breakfast every morning for a small fee.
