Horicon Reviews

3 reviews
Horicon is a quiet, safe community. The city seems to regress when it comes to bringing new business into the city. The school systems are good but the opportunities for kids to get involved in many different after school activities are limited. There are not certain extra curricular activities such as tennis, swimming, cheer squad, and many other activities. Horicon schools need to be remodeled and possibly co-open with another nearby city such as Hustisford to bring sports back to life and to get more kids involved. Overall, Horicon is a good place to raise your kids.

Horicon is a nice and small town with a sweet community feeling. Being the city on the marsh, it has great views of the sunset and nature trails to walk. Horicon has some small local businesses running. There are two elementary/middle schools offered and one public high school offered.
Pretty Boring unfortunately. There is not much to do, and we lack a grocery store. If you want any food you will need to go to Juneau. As far as schooling goes Horicon is OK, and that is about it.
