We moved here about 7 years ago and we love it. It has just enough people that you feel that you have others to talk to, but small enough that you feel comfortable. I am very happy that we chose to move here and make it a home for us!

I was born and raised in Waupun. It is a great little town in rural Wisconsin. Waupun is home to both public and private education, restaurants, stores, and churches. There is easy access to major roadways and rural highways that you can get lost. Nearby Waupun, there is the scenic Horican March where cars can drive or people can bike, walk, or run through this beautiful nature and animal haven.
Like any small town in Wisconsin, there is a certain level of charm that Waupun has. There is not a whole lot of options for shopping for clothing and food. I have to travel to Beaver Dam (15ish minutes) or Fond du lac (25ish minutes) to do any rigorous shopping.
