This week’s Community Highlight puts the spotlight on the Country Crossing community of Appleton, WI. The city of Appleton has been named one of the “best places to live in America” and offers a fun and vibrant atmosphere for all who live there. It holds both a downtown, with shops and entertainment galore, as well as a more rural side that is more fit for recreational activities. Its prime location between Green Bay and the Fox River Valley leaves residents with easy access to top tourist locations with just a short car ride. For those who are interested in theater and the performing arts, the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center is nearby. The center brings in dozens of shows each year, sometimes even touring Broadway productions. It is a perfect spot for people of all ages. For sports fans, the Timber Rattlers minor-league baseball team plays games out of Appleton and promise entertainment for any baseball-lover. The games feature a small stadium for great views and of course, all of your favorite ballpark treats. Appleton’s recreational possibilities are endless, as the town features four community parks that host summer and winter sports alike each year. The Country Crossing community allows residents to enjoy all of the hustle and bustle the town of Appleton has to offer, but with the peace and quiet that many residents still enjoy. Since it is tucked away from the immediate city, the community is perfect for all ages. It is pet friendly and features a community clubhouse right on site. If a lively but peaceful country community sounds perfect to you, we would love to help you find your dream home in Country Crossing.
