What Bert Has To Say About Appleton Metro Area

Lake Winnebago is the primary source for the Fox River, which ultimately reaches Lake Michigan at Green Bay. The so-called “Fox Cities” – Appleton, Neenah, Oshkosh, and Fond du Lac – surround the lake, and the area, known as the Fox River Valley, is a prosperous forest products, papermaking and manufacturing region. Appleton is the largest of and most diverse of the Fox Cities. Downtown Appleton- clean, attractive, active and livable- sits right at the lake, with livable city neighborhoods spreading east and northeast until reaching farmland outside the city.
