Experience the river that made the region.
The Fox Cities developed and continues in its vibrancy along the ever-flowing Fox River. History, natural beauty, and new developments continue to dot the landscape, creating opportunities to explore and experience it. Fox River Tours boat tours take you on a casual boat tour past historic sites, greenspaces, and abundant wildlife like eagles, hawks, deer, and foxes. Afterwards, enjoy a refreshing meal at River Tyme Bistro along the water. Check out the Neenah Lighthouse at Kimberly Point Park at the mouth of the river where it meets Lake Winnebago. Put in your kayak or canoe at parks along the river, like Telulah Park and Lutz Park, for an afternoon of paddling.
Looking for a waterfront place to stay? Courtyard by Marriott Appleton Riverfront, one of the area’s newest hotels, features balconies overlooking the river; restaurants, entertainment, and live music just a block away; and a walking trail that follows the river and connects to nearby neighborhoods and downtown.
