Baraboo is also home to the most visited state park in Wisconsin, beautiful Devil's Lake. The town offers a wide diversity of outdoor activities, shopping opportunities, historic tours as well as well-rated restaurants and bars. Entertainment is not hard to come by, as Baraboo is home to the AL Ringling Circus Museum and is just a 10 minute drive to attractions in the Wisconsin Dells.
I came over from Vietnam to Baraboo, WI when I was ten-years-old. It was an entirely different experience for me. At that time, I wasn't able to speak any English; therefore, I was very scared of everything. I thought that I wouldn't be able to live in America, let alone Baraboo, WI. But I was very lucky to have met many people, and they all have helped me to become the person that I am today. The people in Baraboo have welcomed me with open arms and have made me fallen in love with the city and the people. It's so great that I now called Baraboo is my second home and America is my second homeland to Vietnam. I love that fact that I have two homes and two countries. Baraboo is a small town, and it's a great place to live and grow up for anyone.
Baraboo is a beautiful small town with tons of natural beauty. I definitely recommend to visit or raise a family in!
