Shawano County Reviews
Great, mostly blue-collar county. In the county seat, they make their own soda, Sun Drop, and even have a local festival to celebrate it. There is a farmers' market every week when it is warm, where you can buy fresh produce and canned goods.
Shawano, is a small town that is surrounded by farms, lakes, streams and forests. With a four season climate, you can camp, hunt, fish, boat, sail, canoe, golf, ski, hike, and snowmobile. Cost of living is very affordable, below state national average. Shawano is about 30-45 minutes away from bigger cities like Green Bay and Appleton. Also Shawano has Theda Care Medical Center with a clinic attached. Crime rate is below the national average and Shawano is the type of community that looks after one another, were still small enough to watch out for one another.
Shawano is great community to raise a family in. We have an incredible family oriented public safety crew. The men and women that service our community are the same men and women taking their children to school on a daily basis and protecting and serving our little ones. Shawano has a variety of opportunities for family fun activities such as: Lakeshore Lanes bowling alley, Shawano Cinema indoor and outdoor theater, Shawano Lake, the Recreation center, and many outdoor playgrounds and RV and camping parks. One thing Shawano could use is an outdoor pool or splash pad. Overall, I have enjoyed raising my family in the city of Shawano and plan to stay here for many years to come.
