Visit Oshkosh WI for an amazing vacation where you can explore the wilderness and the historical city as well. Oshkosh is a very pretty green area and it sits between two large lakes, because Fox River flows right through the city, and enters Lake Butte des Morts and Lake Winnebago as well. This area of Wisconsin was beloved and occupied by native tribes, however, it was settled by europeans in the early 1800s. It was a major economical and trade hub, because of the fur trade and lumber industries. The great geographical features allowed the city to export lots of lumber, and soon enough Oshkosh was called the ‘Sawdust Capital’. Sadly a large fire destroyed much of the original buildings in late 1870s, however, the rebuilt buildings now make up the historical downtown districts. Oshkosh is a superb place to visit, because it features great restaurants, shops, museums and outdoor activities too.
Visit downtown Oshkosh and meander around the city's historic 19th-century buildings, many of which have been well-preserved. The most popular landmarks include the St Raphael the Archangel Catholic Church, which is a small, historic church with ornate architectural detailing. Moreover, the Morgan House is an original building from 1884, and it features original woodwork, wallpapers, and 19th-century decoration.
If you would like to combine history and art, visit the Paine Art Center and Gardens which is a historical mansion and an art gallery combined. You can go on a guided tour of the mansion to find out more about its history.
Meanwhile, for a further history fix, the best museum in the area is the EAA Aviation Museum, which offers insight into aviation and the people who made a difference to the industry.
And when it's time to relax in nature, go for a hike on the Wiowash Trail which is a 25-mile long hiking trail. Plus, as the city is set between two beautiful lakes, there are lots of water activities you can do, such as fishing, kayaking, and swimming.
