By the way, my husband grew up in Appleton, so we have a knowledge of what we want and if the city can actually provide that. Like I said, we are small town people. I mean small. Really, really small (we are super excited at the possibility of a job in a town of 700).
I see what you are saying, it is not a small town, but it is very safe and friendly for its size. Trust me, we had to move from there to outside of Reading, Pa. due to my husband's job change. Appelton and Reading are approximately the same size population wise. Believe me it is night and day. You could leave your door unlocked in Appleton, I will not go into downtown Reading. The crime here is unbelievable. And there is a feeling of being "rushed" here that you do not encounter in that area. We would jump at the chance to return to Appleton. Good luck with your job prospect!

I grew up in Neenah, and being a youngster I had to venture out in the world. I wound up in Sf Bay area...what place.

Yet hard times arrived. So I went home to the town of neenah. My mom lives on Lake Winnebago. It was the middle of winter, a snow storm had just powdered the landscape, there was a full moon. There was a crunch as I walked in the subzero weather.

There was no wind, just a huge moon and a sky full of stars.

Wisconsin will surprise you. You will love it.

Go to the kettle moraine state forest....

Move to the town of neenah.

sounds like your kind of place.

Appleton has its good and bad places. I grew up on Linwood Ave north of Wisconsin Ave., and all around that area was safe, alot of kids in the neighborhood who I grew up with. I can only speak for that part of town. It's also centrally located between highlands elementary and wilson middle school and west highschool. Now I live on the outskirts of Grand Chute.
