Fox Cities is the perfect place to explore with children, girlfriends or on-your-own; from indoor museums to outdoor recreational spaces and everything in between, Fox Cities has something for everyone.
Start your trip with a visit to The Bergstrom Mahler Museum of Glass which houses one of the world’s largest collections of glass paperweights. Since its opening in 1959, the museum has expanded its collection to include antique glassware and captivating exhibitions focusing on historical and modern-day glass sculpture. Then head over to Zuppas (Italian for “soup,”) for lunch. The cozy cafeteria style market and café offers everything from dishes like twice-backed mac ‘n’ cheese and curried chicken salad to shredded BBQ pork Wisconsin style and a bevy of desserts. Finally, catch a baseball game at Fox Cities Stadium, home of the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers.
While you’re in town, why not see a show? In 2019, Fox Cities Performing Arts Center welcomes a lineup of award-winning Broadway musical performances. Swap out the Big Apple for Appleton, WI and head to this theatre to experience Anastasia or The Lion King on the big stage for the first time. Afterwards, treat yourself to Vince Lombardi’s Steakhouse a restaurant that’s just as much a museum as it is a world class steakhouse. There, one can enjoy an authentic steakhouse experience surrounded by over 400 personal photos, artifacts and trophies of the football icon.
These are just a sampling of experiences you can expect to enjoy in Fox Cities. For more information, or to learn how you can set up an individual press trip, please contact Jillian.firstname.lastname@example.org
