Fox Cities Performing Arts Center

Reviewed By ReadRibbet

The Fox City PAC is an amazing facility in the heart of downtown Appleton. For a town of its size, it rivals almost all other similar venues in the state. We have been there multiple times for plays, musicals, concerts and speakers. There is virtually no bad seat in the house and the staff is always friendly. Parking can be a bit tricky near the PAC but it's easy to park on a side street and walk over. Centrally located near restaurants and bars for a stop before or after. The offerings are better than almost all other state venues often getting national tours before other locations in the state. It is a great place to catch a show or a concert.

Special Memories Zoo

It's right outside of Appleton, so I would consider it in attractions near there. The list it on their city tourism site, as well. This was surprisingly big and a great value.

Reviewed By HawaiiAloha777 - Green Bay Wisconsin

We look forward to going to this zoo at least yearly. They have a wide variety of animals, from sloths, camels, big cats, Coatimundis, monkeys and more.
The zoo also has a train that explores others areas of the zoo, and the person driving the train stops at numerous locations to point out and let people experience these animals, from badgers, porcupines, deer and other animals.
We took our 11 year old grandson and he enjoyed it as much as we did. Thanks, Special Memories!

Mosquito Hill Nature Center

Reviewed By woodboatchick - Winneconne, Wisconsin

We first became acquainted with Mosquito Hill when they still had their Butterfly House. Unfortunately, the BH was closed Fall of 2014, but there are PLENTY of other things to do there. Then I got involved with their "Serious Snow Shoe Hikes". Described as NOT being a leisurely stroll, these hikes were great exercise. While there for one of the hikes, I saw that MH was hosting a Snow Shoe Race. I'm a runner and a snowshoer, so I figured it couldn't be that hard to do. I picked out my lightest pair of snowshoes and practiced several times before taking on the race. I chose to start with the 1 miler and won my division. I was planning to compete again in 2015, but the races were cancelled for lack of snow. Later in February, MH did offer a torchlight snow shoe walk and it was wonderful! The staff prepared hot cider and chocolate, and had snacks laid out. Really a great group of people!!!
Mosquito Hill also has cross country ski trails separated from the hiking/snowshoeing trails. They rent equipment, so if you want to try out snow shoeing before you buy, it's a great option.
We don't visit as much in the summer as we have other options to explore.

Union Star Cheese Factory

Reviewed By Alex G - Centennial

We presented ourselves as two people seeking knowledge and were introduced a short time later to Dave. He patiently explained how Union Star made the different cheeses and answered all our questions. Only later did we learn that Dave is a fourth generation owner. He spent a good thirty minutes with just us before we joined a continuous stream of customers making purchases. In the age of impersonal, profit-first businesses, it warmed our hearts to find an old-school company competing with the big boys. Dave, today you won us over with your willingness to impart your knowledge while gently nudging us toward business values that really matter. For that, and your marvelous cheeses, we thank you.

Tom (vineyard master and winemaker) and Holly Boettcher (master gardener) have created a charming vineyard in Hortonville, WI, that is already attracting crowds--even before the first vintage has been offered for sale. While the vines are maturing to their productive stage, Whistler's Knoll is hosting a variety of events that will undoubtedly serve to promote wine culture in Central Wisconsin.

We attended a Mediterranean food and wine pairing comprising 5 courses and 5 wine selections, each of which were truly delicious and well-matched. The food was provided by a local restaurant (Carmella's) and the wines were chosen and introduced by wine expert Holly Weisman. If I lived nearby, I would try to attend all of their events! I am certainly looking forward to trying their own vintage, once it is available. Tom said the grape production this year (2015) should yield a small quantity, and I am confident that Tom will be able to make an admirable wine (I did get to try some wine he made with grapes sourced from elsewhere, and it was excellent).

Wolf River Trips and Campground

Reviewed By Michelle R - Chicago

Occasion: Annual adult camping weekend for couples and singles (12-15 people, age range 25-50)

Campground: Crowded, but facilities (bathroom/shower... and sites) probably one of the cleanest I've ever seen for a campground. Pleasantly surprised considering the amount of partying that goes on here. Kudos to the staff.

Atmosphere: The weekends are packed with families (young children) and young singles... all age groups. I'm not a parent, but if I was I don't think I would bring my young children on the weekend, maybe during the week. Had a great time with the group of adults we were with.

River/Float: Water shallow (1.5-3 ft.) a little dirty. Initial entrance area smelled of horse urine, but expected when surrounded by farm land. Bus ride only 5 minutes but float time about 1.5-2 hrs., especially if you pull over to the side and hangout in the water a bit.

Clubhouse: The onsite bar is convenient for nighttime entertainment away from your campsite. The food isn't great... frozen packaged items. Slow food/beverage service... order from bar even if sitting on patio. Bar staff not overly friendly. I realize it's annoying to serve rowdy people day in/out... but it's your job. Need better customer service. Dancing on Saturday night.

Overall: You get what you pay for. This is a fun adult camping weekend trip. Once a year is fine for me. I'm not sure I would frequent more than once annually.

Reviewed By Stormie K

Our favorite storybook character visited the museum. They had coloring activities after the book reading. He loved every minute of it. He also loved playing in the 3 year old and under area. It's gated off so you don't have to worry about your little one running away from you. Great place for my almost 2 year old.

Damn Yankee's Watering Hole

Reviewed By Dick_WinneconneWI - Winneconne, Wi

Four of us ate there last week. I had sirloin tips served with grilled onions and gravy. Flavor, tenderness was to die for! My wife had a Philly steak sandwich which she shared with me (light eater). That, too was as good as could be. Our friends had a hot beef sandwich and a hamburger, which they both enjoyed very much. Drinks were very good, waiter was friendly, witty, pretty, and efficient.

Hearthstone Historic House Museum

Reviewed By Maggie L - Appleton, Wisconsin

Don't keep passing this place by! Take the time, hear the stories, and appreciate your history Appleton! It's amazing for us to re-visit Wisconsin in the late 1800s, and even better for our children to see. Amazing craftsmanship, great tour guides, beautiful views - relive an era gone by and then, the next time you pass this building by the bridge you will look at it with an entirely different perspective.
