Can I ask where you are moving from? Sheboygan is fairly 'hick'. It is not my favorite area. If you have money, you should look at Kohler. I know Sheboygan is always in the 'top' places to live...but, I honestly don't know why. It's cold and snowy, and not much to do. You are over an hour away from Milwaukee.

I want to go where it isn't freezing cold four months out of the year. Where 30 below windchills is not normal in December/January. I have lived in WI or MN my whole life. I would love to garden for more than 3 or 4 months out of the year. My husband and I went out to dinner last night. At 8:00 p.m. it was 22 degrees and windy. It is just the start of a long cold winter. The only reason I am still in WI is for my family. My Mother's older and I want to watch after her. You say the humidity is bad in NC? I am looking at the Asheville area. My understanding is the weather is quite temperate, with averages year around around 60 degrees and 70% humidity. Colorado is supposed to be wonderful...just not very inexpensive. Thanks for asking.

tkao. If you want metropolitan (at all) Sheboygan really isn't the place for you. There is low crime, the school system is decent. There are a few good restaurants. You are close to Lake Michigan. But, the people (for the most part) are behind the times. Can I ask why you are moving? Do you have flexibility within the state? There are some great areas in Wisconsin. I'm glad to help if I can.

Toilettown? LOL. I turned down a job with Kohler becuase they told me that opposing high school fans come to play Kohler usually bring toilet seats and wave them at the game, chanting "Toilet Town....Toilet Town...." LOL.

Seriously though, I did turn down a job with Kohler but because living in Kohler is like living in country club golf course. It's very exclusively for the rich. But if you can afford it and think you can fit it, it's a nice place.

Sheboygan is a very blue collar, old town. I was not particularly impressed. Since the Kohler job would not have paid me enough to live in Kohler and I didn't want to raise my family in Sheboygan, we didn't take that opportunity.

But that's just us. Best of luck to you!

I want to move to CO because, first and foremost, I need a BIG change. I want to be somewhere I will be totally anonymous. It is the only time in my life I will be able to do this...I feel like I am at a dead-end here. 2nd: I think the scenery there is gorgeous (mtn view). 3rd: I will not miss the (lack of) technology here and the "redneck mentality" of some people here.

Moving to Sheboygan to be closer to the wife's family. Colorado is alot different from what I remember growing up. People have changed quite a bit. Lots of people are here now. Which is fine if you like the city and traffic. I-25 from Denver to Fort Collins is packed constantly. Went for a bike ride on a bike trail through fort collins the other day and it was like a highway. This area is going to be city from Colorado Springs to Fort Collins. Lots to do with the mountain, but you will be doing it with plenty of others. Can't complain about the weather, it was 74 today. But the summers have been hot and dry with the drought that we have been in. When the inlaws come out from Wisconsin it drives them crazy because everything is brown.

WIGooFan, You are correct the scenery is gorgeous, but bring your checkbook if you want a view from your house. The better the view the more it will cost.
