Appleton, WI is the Center of North-East Wisconsin

I've lived in Appleton my entire life and have no desire to leave. Appleton offers the activities and events of a big city but maintains a close community feel. For example, if I spent an evening seeing a play at the massive Fox Cities Performing Arts Center I would surely see many familiar faces in the crowd. Then I could cross College Avenue and find myself on the infamous bar thoroughfare that is traveled to from all over the state, making it the most bustling nightlife spot in north-east Wisconsin. As the night turns to day, bar patrons clear the way for the weekly farmers market that runs every Saturday from June through October. Only blocks away from the busy social center of Appleton, one can get lost in one of the many natural parks that line the Fox River. To get a better view of the river, climb up the hill and have a picnic on the grass on the Laurence University campus, renowned for being one of the nation's top music schools. Appleton hosts the area's largest mall, bar street, and number of performance centers so I have no reason motivation to leave my hometown.
