Appleton is getting some love from the Chicago entertainment website Urban Matter. In a travel piece published this week by independent journalist Pamela Dittmer McKuen, Appleton is described as blending “big-city lifestyle with the ambiance of a small town.”
Sounds about right.
“Cultural and dining attractions are top-flight, and waterfront options can be active or leisurely,” she writes, and goes on to say “it’s just the right distance for a weekend (or longer) getaway!”
Among the aspects highlighted, as you might expect, are the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center, the Fox River, downtown shops, brewpubs like Stone Arch Brewpub and Appleton Beer Factory, and the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers.
For locals, it’s a light reminder of some of the pleasantries around us on a daily basis. It also likely brought a smile to the faces of the folks at the Fox Cities Convention and Visitors Bureau, Appleton Downtown Inc. and other organizations helping spread the word of what Appleton and the surrounding communities have to offer.
