Crime & Safety
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!
Appleton has so many great features for all types of people. The downtown area is well-kept and people take pride in owning store frontages there. Many different local shops to peruse. If you're looking for adventure, there's tons of trails to explore and even a nature preserve. There are many different cuisines to try from Japanese, Italian, Southern, Thai, Vietnamese, and many cafés. It is a constantly growing city with lots of uncovered potential. Currently, they are building a new venue for more musicians to attend. Each year, during the month of August, the "Mile of Music" is put on from various local sponsors to bring bands in from around the globe. For 3 or 4 days you can walk a mile and hear over fifty artists playing and choose to stay and leave as you please. Appleton is a great city to visit or to stay. It has much to offer if you're willing to look for it.
