Great place to raise a family! Excellent downtown with music festivals, farmer's markets, and art. Highly rated schools with a private University, two year college and a Technical School all within 10 minutes.
I like the family friendly atmosphere. There are many resources within the city of Appleton. For example, the glorious Fox River Mall, the wide variety of vehicle repair shops, the variery of grocery stores as well as the Kwik Trip convenience stores!
I love Appleton because of it's community involvement in the performing arts. Lawrence University lies within Appleton and is a huge influence within the Fox Valley. As a music major, I appreciated the musical opportunities I received in Appleton because of the university's involvement with the community while I was in high school. Along with that, downtown is the perfect place to shop, grab coffee, watch live performances, and to sight-see. The farmer's market during the summertime is always a fun activity as well. Overall, I've felt safe in Appleton, except there are a lot of bad drivers out there.... but I guess you could say that about any city. Appleton is a great city to start a life, raise a family, get a job, and to just enjoy life.
