What Renters Like and Dislike About Appleton

The park is very close and gas good walking and playground equipment for kids and also tennis courts and a ball diamond. It is a good place to go

people watch out for others, local red ox downtown for music entertainment in the summer outside weekly

I love that my apartment is so close to restaurants and shopping. When my grandsons visit we can quickly go to dinner, shopping, or a movie within 5 minutes.

I like that everything is so close together so my kid can walk anywhere she wants to. Also, I like the abundance of different stores close by in case we need to walk anywhere.

It is close to many grocery stores. It is also close to shopping and food places. The apartment complexes are newer.
