Oshkosh was chosen as the best place in Wisconsin to raise children according to a Business Week study. Eau Claire and West Allis, Wi were runners up.
Municipalities with populations of 45,000 residents minimum were considered. These are some of the factors used to determine the winners: School, crime, air quality, diverstity and more. The entire article listing each state can be found here.
There are lots of great places in live in Wisconsin and a ton of great Wisconsin communities too small to be considered in this study. I live in Waukesha and revitalization of the downtown area to include an artist community is one thing I really like. They have Art Crawls to draw people downtown to the art galleries and shops. There is an Art Crawl this Saturday, December 5th. I’ll be there…What do you like about your Wisconsin community?
