Fun. Funky. Friendly -- What's Not to Like?

There's so much to like about Downtown Appleton. Thanks to its 60+ distinctive shops ... 50+ casual, fine dining and ethnic restaurants... nearly 30 pubs, clubs and live music hot spots ... a leading performing arts center and world-class visual arts gallery ... family-friendly activities and attractions ... a variety of coffee shops and gathering places ... PLUS Northeast Wisconsin's best events, Downtown Appleton is a favorite destination for many -- and it just keeps getting better and better!

Here's your chance to tell us what you like about one of Wisconsin's folksiest, funkiest and friendliest downtowns. Tell us what you like best or like to do most.
