I love living in Cambridge. I believe that Cambridge is one of the best towns in WI. The town is located near a cute beach with a warm main-street. There are many nice mountain biking trails nearby, as well as walking trails, a river, and parks. I would definitely move here again.

There is almost no crime in Cambridge. I have only heard of a couple incidents in the last couple of months. Occasionally, you will see a cop-car. The town is a very safe place. I have never felt unsafe in downtown Cambridge.
Cambridge is a small town, with many people who care about their community. I definitely choose to live here again and possibly raise a family here. Cambridge has never failed to impress, and has continued to grow over the years.
