Oshkosh Reviews

Wonderful city! Great opportunities and schools with plenty to do! During the summer, enjoy Rock USA, Country USA, and EAA. Spend some time enjoying the beach and the zoo at Menominee Park, or visit the historic Paine Art Museum. There is always something to do in Oshkosh!
Review Oshkosh
When I attended the University of Oshkosh for my Bachelor's degree I immediately fell in love with the city. It reminded me of home; which was Whitefish Bay. The draw bridges and quaint downtown area with many boutiques quickly drew me in. Over the years I have enjoyed the many festivities including Country USA, Rockfest, Lifest and EAA. Now, I am excited about the the new basketball stadium going in on South Main street. Oshkosh has a big city approach with a small town appeal. It has been the perfect place to raise my family and I am happy I stayed.
I love the events in Oshkosh that put us on the map! EAA, Country USA, and Rock USA are the biggest events here. For the residents, events like these can be difficult to work around for the week, but I wouldn't trade those events for anything!
