Appleton, a “Yappening” place!

by Nathan Litt

Recently the 2011 Fox Cities LIFE Study results were released.  There were some good data points suggesting Appleton is a happening place for young professionals. One figure in particular was especially supportive of Appleton being “YAP friendly”:  Nearly 70% of community members feel that the Fox Cities are a good or excellent place for young professionals (Figure 1, pg. 27, Community Perceptions).

Appleton and the Fox Cities could be the THE “Young Professionals” destination in northeast Wisconsin or perhaps even the entire state…

What do you think; do you agree?  What makes Appleton a good place for YAPs to live, work, and play?

I am a YAP and I wouldn’t have it any other way,

There's so much to like about Downtown Appleton. Thanks to its 60+ distinctive shops ... 50+ casual, fine dining and ethnic restaurants... nearly 30 pubs, clubs and live music hot spots ... a leading performing arts center and world-class visual arts gallery ... family-friendly activities and attractions ... a variety of coffee shops and gathering places ... PLUS Northeast Wisconsin's best events, Downtown Appleton is a favorite destination for many -- and it just keeps getting better and better!
