I Finally Learned Where Appleton Came From

The exhibit “Progressive Appleton” was super interesting and really interactive. You don’t just shuffle through reading useless material. All of ‘stations’ have concise yet interesting information, with some using QR Codes for the Smartphone users. (Good reception, too!)

Being a native Appletonian, I finally learned where this awesome city came from. Appleton was pretty snazzy back then and made huge advances, technologically and socially. Whether one is new to the area or lived here their whole life, there’s something you probably didn’t know in this exhibit.

The festive design related the past Appleton to now. It wasn’t dreary or monotone. Thank goodness! The exhibit was completely designed locally, too – props to the curator!

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!
