Just curious to see what are some unique cool little cities under 1,000 population wise. Alma looks kinda cool for a small town. What are some small towns that are unique, quirky or just neat places to go or a place one could retire if you were looking for small town life like Mayberry.

Alma WI Alma, Wisconsin - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I always liked Green Lake (the city itself). The population is 1100 at the 2000 census and Green Lake is in Green Lake County. I also like Boulder Junction with a population of 958, Boulder Junction is in Vilas County.

I'm partial to Cambridge (pop around 1100) as I have family there, and Lake Ripley is very pretty. And I agree on Boulder Junction, very nice town.

Wisconsin is loaded with some nice small towns and if you don't mind a little extra cold and snow, Josh B hit mine and the wife's favorite, Boulder Junction. Go there the Friday after Thanksgiving about 5pm for the annual Christmas Walk and you won't want to leave.

My dad used to work for a courier service and he had a route in Western Wisconsin. He would leave Madison then head up towards Sauk City, then off to Richland Center. Then he would head up towards Elroy, Wilton, Kendall and Viroqua. He had a few stops in little towns along highway 35 (the same highway Alma is on) and he said it was great going through all those towns. Most of the towns were pretty small except Viroqua and La Crosse.

My uncle and aunt live in Boulder Junction. Not sure what sort of businesses they have up in that area, or even if they have a local grocery store.

They might have to do things in Rhinelander, that's the largest town of any appreciable size that I can see.
