Arena Reviews

Arena is a small town, it's completely normal for everyone to talk to everyone because most if not all people in Arena grew up knowing each other or knowing of each other. Mostly everyone gets along, a park in the center of town where every weekend before the 4th of July arena has a parade and a huge gathering all day, with baseball, kickball and a ton of other fun for family and kids, Arena has really does have that country small town feel and is honestly a great place to grow up.

Arena is probably one of the last places I would want to live in Sauk County. The town itself is extremely bleak and falling apart. The residents are mostly elderly or retired folks and there is little opportunity for younger families or working people.

It is located very close to the Wisconsin River, so the mosquitos are TERRIBLE in the summer, to the point where you can't go outside without being eaten alive.

The local elementary school is also being closed within the next few years, so children have to be bussed 10 minutes away to the school in the next town over.
