Fox Cities

Fox Cities Defines Fun

The Fox Cities are Wisconsin's shopping place. Central to the Fox Cities’ experience is the Fox River Mall. Beyond the mall, the galleries and specialty retailers in downtown Appleton and historic Neenah feature unique items and personalized service sure to please even the most discerning shopper. Downtown Appleton is the cultural heart of the Fox Cities where, after a day of shopping, visitors enjoy a variety of dining, nightlife and entertainment options. We invite you to enjoy our 19 communities all here along the Fox River and Lake Winnebago in the greater Appleton area.
