Getting To Know The Fox Cities, WI

Posted on by Gail Popp

A Refreshing Change of Pace

Nineteen communities along the Fox River make up the Fox Cities, one of Wisconsin’s fastest growing areas with more than 236,000 residents. A unique mixture of urban style and small town warmth make the Fox Cities a great place to meet, play, shop and stay.

Rejuvenated downtowns, thriving industry, and quaint neighborhoods lace the Fox Cities with historic character.

More than 150 years ago water served as a source of power and transportation, and the Fox River had an abundance of both. As Wisconsin achieved statehood in 1848 the Fox River was a catalyst for attracting new settlers to the Fox Cities. Dutch, German, French and Irish immigrants were starting new lives in the Fox Cities.

Today the historic Fox River remains the heart of the Fox Cities linking the history and culture of 19 vibrant communities. Home to the world’s largest concentration of paper mills, the Fox Cities boast thriving downtown districts, first-rate attractions and breathtaking scenic beauty.
