There are a shockingly good number of things to do in Appleton WI for adults only in the very family-friendly Fox Cities region of Wisconsin.
Ironically, Appleton, Wisconsin is both the Big City or the Outdoor Gateway depending on who you ask.

And, according to 24/7 Wall St., Appleton is also one of the drunkest cities in America.
Folks from more rural communities in Central Wisconsin and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula drive in for the upscale shopping, world-class entertainment, and lively nightlife. In contrast, residents from major metropolitan areas such as Milwaukee and Madison appreciate safe, walkable downtown and outdoor recreation opportunities.
For those of us accustomed to the anonymity of New York City streets, it’s surprising just how friendly people are in the Fox Cities. Here, people don’t just smile a greeting in passing, they actually stop to offer assistance to confused pedestrians.
