Town to Town Tour

WHBL Town to Town Tour

WHBL is going town to town to pay tribute to the great cities in our community. Each week we'll focus on a different city culminating with a live high school football broadcast.

Featured City of The Week is Random Lake

The Random Lake Area Chamber of Commerce website states at that the area was "established by hard-working, industrious people, and these communities reflect those same values today. We manage to live without stop lights, parking meters, billboards or strip-malls. No "fast-food" here, but this area is well known for "good-food", prepared with tender loving care and always served with a smile. There are many recreational oportunities - boating, swimming, water-skiing and fishing for trophy sized musky. We're an easy drive form Lake Michigan, The Kettle-Moraine State Forest, Harrington Beach State Park, a dozen challenging golf courses, and features like Road America and Wade House Historic Site."
