It is a sweet Midwestern town. There is a great community of farmers, and small local businesses, a wonderful food coop and farmers market, so easy access to good food. The people are friendly and excited about all the recent changes and new additions to this small city

Viroqua is one of Wisconsin’s top “foodie” destinations, with many great local cafes and restaurants serving locally sourced, organic food, but the art, culture, music and education in this small rural community is also exceptional.
Viroqua has a lot going on - live music often at multiple venues, thriving farmers market, and a vibrant downtown.
