Hudson is a great place to live. People are nice and friendly here. I go to hudson high school. It is a good place to go to school. Overall, it is highschool and teenagers are teenagers. The academics are good. There are a lot of class options as well as alternative class options for those who would rather not take certain classes. The school is very clean and we love our custodial staff. there are lots of things to do in hudson as well. Downtown is a historical place with lots of restaurants and shops. Overall, I would say that Hudson Wisconsin is a very nice place to live, We are also in the Saint Croix River, so we have a big boating community and during the summer the river is very lively. If this is what you're looking for, then Hudson is the place for you. I hope my review helps you learn more about hudson and make a decision about whether this is the place for you or not.

I have lived in Hudson Wisconsin my entire life and I do not think there could have been a better town to grow up in. The town is unbelievably family oriented there is a large selection of parks and recreational activities for all ages strategically placed all over town. There are also five elementary schools conveniently placed around town so no matter where you live in town you are never far from school. The town of Hudson just invested millions of dollars into a new high school for the kids. I was sadly not able to attend the new school since I had graduated the year before it was finished. But I was able to go to school in the middle of the construction zone while they made the million dollar new school, and I can surely say it is a wonderful and safe place to go to school. overall Hudson Wisconsin is a wonderful place to raise a family.
Hudson is a beautiful, small city on the west-central border of Wisconsin, just across the river from beautiful Lakeland, Minnesota. This city brags a gorgeous dyke on the St. Croix River, a bandshell at a small park behind the Phipps Center for the Arts, and several unique restaurants in downtown on 2nd Street. If you're looking for a olace to stop and shop without a load of stop-lights and several lanes of traffic for miles on end, Hudson is a wonderful city to check out!
