Oshkosh is a great place to live, especially with children as Oshkosh has a lot of great playgrounds and museums for kids. There is also a lot of great places to shop like the Outlet Mall. The only thing that sucks is all the construction that seems to be everywhere you turn, but that comes with pretty much anywhere you live!

It’s an extremely nice environment! Everyone is friendly, for the most part. It’s peaceful and quiet. It’s just a soothing atmosphere to live in.
Oshkosh Is a wonderful place that is very connected through the means of family and friends. Oshkosh is very close to several cities, small towns, and attractions, which provides an array of engaging activities suited for all. There are many job and career opportunities located within a close range. I am currently enrolled in the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh which has a wonderful diverse community and very educated professors that are devoted to helping student succeed in more than just classes. There is honestly nothing I would like to change about Oshkosh and overall I would rate Oshkosh as a 5/5.
