Neenah is a town filled with diversity which usually could cause rifts to form in the community; however, the community feels more bound together because of our differences. While some may look at Neenah and see a boring, dull town, I see Neenah as a hidden gem with limitless possibilities for adventure. Whether it is meeting your friends downtown to go to a restaurant or cafe, going to the library to look for a new world hidden in the extensive library, or simply wandering around the beautiful parks in Neenah, there is always something to do even if you want to or have to do it alone. Neenah is also a great place to make new friends as everyone is always friendly and welcoming to new people and experiences, no matter how out of place one may feel the first tie they come here.

Neenah is a great town located in Wi. It is a relatively small town and is very local. Neenah is great for families and people looking to expand. We have lakes almost everywhere along with well developed, older architecture that will expand the mind and eyes of most individuals. You can find almost anything here, ice cream shops, small venues and great nature to look at. The crime rate is relatively low. Most people know each other. Neenah high school is a very large school with newer built areas and some of the best technology. Along with the vast number of career paths you could learn about it has just as many clubs and extra curricular's so almost everyone will fit in.
I moved to Neenah a few years ago after becoming a Registered Nurse. I moved from Milwaukee WI. I felt so welcomed to the city within my first few weeks by complete strangers. People are so nice and freindly here. I love that I am in the perfect location, I am a quick drive to Milwaukee, and also a quick drive up north. There are many local hiking trails and lakes and rivers for boating and kayaking.
