    Boscobel Reviews

    3 reviews
    Boscobel is a small Southwestern town located next to the Wisconsin river. There is not much to do in this little town, but there is a great coffee shop and a few small town pubs with great food. If you love the outdoors there are many walk paths next to the little creek and it follows it all the way down to the protected marsh and Wisconsin River. I would recommend mosquito spray in the summer months and a great snow shovel in the winter.
    Review Boscobel
    We have a prison in town and I am a correctional sergeant so hard to rate for me as I deal with this issue on a daily basis.
    It is beautiful here and I am close to my family.
