i lived in baraboo for awhile and my parents are still there. i loved it. we moved there from chicago so it was a huge change but once the shock of living in such a small town wore off, it was great. i did spend most of my time in the dells, people around my age at the time (high school) were a bit friendlier i thought. all and all, we'll be moving back to the state in the next few years because i do miss it.

I grew up around Hartford (well, that school district). I loved it. The school was great - it is in the Kettle Moraine, close enough to commute to Milwaukee for work if needed. Slinger is nice also.

Madison area, transient, blue collar to professional, lots to do, not great for singles looking make a connection however. Liberal, pricey, high taxes, so so public transnt but getting better. Hard to get around until you learn all the one ways because it has three lakes it is buildt around.
Out lying towns are nice. Lots of charater.
Portage, I love all the great houses there too, but has a lot of sex offenders living there so some reason. Baraboo is neat, Mineral Point, very historic.
Wow lots to check out. Love traveling the state yet and have lived here all my life.

Having lived in Baraboo, visiting Portage and Reedsburg, they seemed like they were from different planets. Not much to offer in Portage/Reedsburg. Baraboo seemed very alive and vital. Can't put my finger on why. Schools used to be excellent in Baraboo.........I've moved from there so can't speak of the current situation

Adams Friendship is a scary area. The principal of high school moved out a few years ago due to too many death threats from parents, not students - nice!!

I own some land in the area. Hunting is good but the people are unbelieveably backwoods, rude and intellectually, not very stimulating.

Hell I think most of them only have half their teeth.

Seems like a good place to open a tobacco shop though - probably make good $ as the demand is strong.

Looks like a very nice area driving through there about half a dozen times. The terrain is interesting, many lakes and recreation opportunities, houses look to be well-kept and businesses seem to be holding their heads above water.

Another really cute, well-kept town is Bloomer.
