Your New Home In Fond Du Lac
The beautiful Kettle Moraine State Forest is on the way East from this modest Wisconsin city; right before you hit the Great Lake Michigan. Fond Du Lac (French for 'bottom of the lake', actually) itself is nestled right at the foot of the slightly smaller but just as beautiful Lake Winnebago. With a population of 42,203, its own County Airport, several parks not to mention the beautiful harbor, as well as the two colleges: University of Wisconsin Center Fond Du Lac and Marian University, it may be modest but it has alot to offer the new resident. Apartments are plentiful. Start your apartment search right by using our Apartment Guide. You can even find out extra information, not only about rentals and apartments but just what it's like day-to-day in the town, by talking to some of the people who already live there: use our LocalTalk!
Rental Trends For Apartments In Fond Du Lac
You'll find most of the rates for new homes: apartments in houses or larger building complexes, planned communities, suburban-looking homes, houses out in the wilderness, etcetera, are generally very affordable. However there is a great variety when it comes to types of properties and prices. Your location may end up being all the way at the top the lake, actually, somewhat away from the city center; or even on the other side of the Kettle Moraine State Forest in and around the nearby small town of Sheboygan, which is right on the shore of Lake Michigan.
What Is There To Know About Fond Du Lac?
Hmm...first, a random fact to encourage you: as of 2006, the combined Fond Du Lac metropolitan area, also known as Fond Du Lac county, was named by Quinto Press as the safest anywhere in the United States. A very low rating for city crime, given that it is really a city, despite the small-town feel. They are a proud and resilient, friendly community in Fond Du Lac, and feel free to browse the town's official website to find out all the useful information you'll need to know once you move-in to your new apartment. Old Locomotives, fire trucks, lighthouses, covered wooden bridges, seagulls, ducks, ya know. They'll even help you look for work (no guarantees...) and all the town departments are listed with contact information, with all the local public town resources and calendar of all kinds of events in town. They claim they'll even help you 'hold a special event or block party'.
So What Is There To Do In Fond Du Lac?
The town is littered with parks, filled with various public gardens, and then there's the Lakeside Park Marina, complete with old lighthouse for your viewing pleasure. It's a place for boating, cook-outs, you can even rent the Lakeside Park Pavilion for special events. They maintain a boat launch as well. Nearby are all the hiking and biking trails. 50 miles of them. You can find out more about them all here. You can walk, ski, walk your pet, snowmobile or what-have-you. Boating, camping, fishing, golfing and swimming of course are also permitted throughout the county's elaborate network of these trails and recreational areas. Also don't miss-out on the Horicon National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center. It's over 32,00 acres, with a crazy variety of birds that call it their home, and if you're there at the right time of the year you'll get to catch a glimpse of the huge flocks of Canadian Geese in the middle of their migration.
Hitting The Town: Attractions, Culture, Entertainment
When it comes to culture and heritage stuff, your first and second stop(s) should be the Blakely Museum and then the CCC Barracks Museum. Blakely is all about America 'way back in the day of the early Native Americans and hosts exhibitions of artifacts and their stories. The CCC (stands for Civilian Conservation Corps) has to do with the Roosevelt 'New Deal' era when jobless young fellas all over during the Depression got some work rebuilding our roads, construction, that kinda thing...history can be fun! Go on the tour! Perhaps when you first arrive, perhaps with your spouse, or children...or fiancé (French again...) you'll want to postpone the living in a new empty apartment feeling by staying at one of Fond Du Lac's luxurious and romantic bed and breakfasts. Look-up the Dobranoc Inn, or the mysterious Moondance Bed & Breakfast.
