Neenah...a small town? That's similar to looking at a 30,000 person Chicago suburb (of which there are many in Chicagoland) and labeling that suburb a small town. Neenah is directly contiguous with Menasha which is directly contiguous with Appleton and so on down the stream of Fox Cities.

I truly think when looking at just one of the fox cities in isolation is not fair to the area. Living in neenah would feel a lot different if it were just Neenah and nothing for 50 miles. Living in the fox cities is nothing like that at all.

The fox cities population is 360,000 people...certainly a lot bigger than Neenah itself (24k), but also a lot smaller than cities like Milwaukee and Chicago. The Fox Cities are just slightly less populous than Madison.

Everything in the suburbs exists in the Fox Cities, except the traffic. Obviously, proximity to a big city is not there in the Fox Cities (well, Milwaukee is 90 miles away), but then again many people who live in the suburbs rarely go into the city and do so only when they have to.

Particularly if you like cold weather, you will enjoy living in the fox cities. The people are very warm and very friendly as a whole (compared to other areas I've lived). It is relatively homogenous and mostly white, but then again, so are many suburbs of big cities. We do have a few blacks, some asians and some latinos...the fox cities are actually more diverse than many suburbs of big cities.

Default Re:"...do I take my job offer in Neenah,WI?"

Take it from someone who worked for Kimberly-Clark, you couldn't pay me enough money to work for them. Their "tactics" of the last few years,has really tarnished their reputation. The only thing that K.C. values, is the almighty dollar.Think long and hard, before you accept ANY job offer from them.
