Appleton Travel Guide

Appleton, along Lake Winnebago in eastern Wisconsin, is a hidden gem of the Midwest. Home to Lawrence University, Appleton is buzzing with young college-aged students, and of course, all the events hosted on the campus. There is still plenty to do in the rest of the town, if you don’t visit the college.

Wisconsinites tend to be polite and welcoming. People in Appleton tend to be reserved, but kind and friendly nonetheless.

Things to Do in Appleton

Head to the Butterfly Gardens of Wisconsin, the largest butterfly house in Wisconsin, or the History Museum at the Castle to learn about the history of the Fox River Valley Region. For the best trails and natural beauty, head to Fox Trot Trail or Gordon Bubolz Nature Preserve. Downtown Appleton Farmer’s Market, happening every summer, is the place to shop for all of your handmade snacks and souvenirs. Other top attractions in the city are the Performing Arts Center, Trout Museum of Art, Paper Discovery Center, The Building for Kids, and Hearthstone Historic House Museum.

Best Time to Visit Appleton

The city’s temperatures can drop well below zero in the winter, so try to plan a visit in the spring when the flowers are abloom and the city is warming up.
