Covering the state’s destinations…

Writer Shelby Deering reports, “The Fox Cities were once considered a quiet corner of Wisconsin, with nearby Green Bay often catching people’s eyes with its gridiron glory. But recently, the Fox Cities have truly flourished into a hot Midwest destination. With cities that include Appleton, Kaukauna, Menasha and Neenah, among others, the region is a meeting planner’s dream—3,500 hotel rooms, exciting activities and world-class convention centers.” Find out why this destination is deservedly capturing attention.
