What Bert Has To Say About Oshkosh-Neenah Metro Area

Known in a larger sense as the “Fox Cities” for their location in the Fox River Valley, the cities of Appleton, Oshkosh, Neenah and Fond du Lac surround Lake Winnebago. Lumber and paper production form much the area’s economic base, led by paper products giant Kimberly-Clark. Neenah also has a substantial iron and steel foundry and commercial printing industry. While the area sounds overly dominated by industry, the industrial areas are confined to a small part of town along the lakefront, and Neenah enjoys strong endowments from its industrial legacy. It has a nice small town center with good parks and inner residential neighborhoods.
