I've lived in Spring Green for 15 years, and I think it's a nice place. The countryside is beautiful out here in the Driftless area of Wisconsin, and the people are usually friendly. There are a lot of small events that happen in town throughout the year, and a couple of big ones: the Art Fair and the Car Show being the bigger events. The economy is limited but things are moving well and there is a decent amount of money in the village and the area. I and a lot of others do the 35- to 45-minute commute to work in Middleton or Madison, depending of course on the location of the workplace. The closest cheap grocery shopping is at the Super Walmart in Dodgeville, about a 20-minute drive away (17 miles).

It can get pretty quiet with not much going on, especially in winter, so I wouldn't recommend living here for people who are looking for a faster paced or more stimulating kind of lifestyle. You need to have your own things going that interest you in your life, and then you'll be fine.

Spring Green is a great place to visit, but I would not recommend living here all year round. The school districts are poor and have a very small budget. Sports are a big deal at the school, but there isn't much interest in other activities such as music or academics.

There is almost nothing to do for fun in the area unless you are here for the summer to go to APT, visit Taliesin, or canoe on the Wisconsin River. During the off -season, you would have to drive 30-45 minutes to find anything interesting to do.

Considering the relatively low quality of living in Spring Green, the property taxes are rather high, and quite frankly not worth the extra cost. There are also very high nitrate levels in the area, which has proven to be hazardous to the health of people in the area.
Spring Green is a small, eclectic artistic community in south central Wisconsin on the Wisconsin River. Like most northern towns, things are pretty quiet in the winter, but there are many outdoor and river-related activities in the summer. The American Players Theater, House on the Rock, and Taliesin are also popular local attractions.
