I have lived in Fort Atkinson for almost 20 years and really like the community. During the spring to fall they have a nice Farmers Market. I enjoy the baseball fest in the summer, and they have parades for holidays throughout the year.
This is a very friendly town. You can walk around and anytime someone passes you they always say Hello with a smile. Love that about this town!
