I love this community. Small town living, but close enough to Madison and Wisconsin Dells for entertainment and shopping needs.

Sauk City is a little town on the Wisconsin River. It is a great place to start a family because it is very safe. Also they are expanding and starting to develop more things for people to do. This town is on the rise!
Fantastic time spent in a nice little city. Nice people, nice bar and pubs, the only thingh Iwouldlike to have next time I get there it's to find more activities on the river during summer
