Make the Fox Cities Your Meeting Place (Sponsored)

Downtown Appleton’s safe, walkable, clean, and vibrant environment is a one-of-a-kind place to host your next meeting or event.

Fuel up. From chef-owned scratch kitchens specializing in locally grown and freshly made dishes to authentic ethnic food experiences from the area’s diverse cultural influences to classic Midwestern favorites, the Fox Cities is home to a robust food scene. Whether looking to grab a morning coffee, an outdoor spot for a riverfront lunch, or in need of an evening fine dining spot, find them all along the blocks of downtown Appleton.

Get moving. The Fox Cities Exhibition Center is steps from easily getting in those extra steps. The center is built into a cliffside and adjacent to Jones Park. Sidewalks and paths wind through the park and connect the greenspace to other neighborhood, downtown, and riverside walking trails. The downtown corridor – clean, safe, well-lit, and a perfect mix of commercial, residential, and cultural features – is remarkably simple to navigate and enjoy, and on its eastern end, Lawrence University in Appleton – named the most beautiful college town in the state – offers attendees even more safe, convenient, and scenic routes to get moving.

Relax and rejuvenate. Whether shopping, spas, or greenspaces give solace and relaxation, find them all downtown. From cute boutiques to spa options to outdoor areas, people can find time away from the work to partake in ways that allow them to rejuvenate and reduce stress.

Learn something new. From the History Museum at the Castle to the Trout Museum of Art, expand horizons, learn a bit of local history, or take in the remarkable history of the region at a variety of cultural, historical, and educational stops along the Avenue. Prefer outdoor space? Take a self-guided mural tour or historical neighborhood walk. A world of wonder and excitement awaits.
