As a resident of Delavan Wisconsin, there is a lot of history behind it all. There is different places you could walk to and make memories with friends and family. You can walk or bike any day or night without having to think of the possible dangers. Delavan is a very diverse community in which everyone comes together. Overall it's been a wonderful growing up and living in a family friendly place.
The school are good, my daughter has autism and they are awesome and very well educated. They are expanding a lot by adding a fleet farm and a Myers. It’s small town living but probably one of the bigger cities in the county. There are lots of different cultures here and it’s very diverse. The restaurants are awesome especially the Mexican restaurants. Could definitely use a few more options, we have chili’s and Panera but could use a couple other nice sit down restaurants. Adlai and piggly wiggly are the biggest grocery store options besides Walmart
