Moving to a new area isn’t a decision you make by throwing a dart at a dart board. It’s something that takes careful consideration and planning. Does it have a school for the kids? How long will it take me to get to work? Are there opportunities for good jobs in that community? Is the downtown full with a variety of shops and restaurants?
For Evansville, Wisconsin, all of the answers to those questions are quite positive. Let’s dive a little deeper into six reasons why choosing Evansville is a great decision.
The school system in Evansville is ranked very positively overall. The Evansville Community School District received 4 out of 5 stars for the 2018-19 school year. More details on that report can be found here.
As someone who commuted to Madison for the majority of my time living in Evansville, I am aware that Hwy 14 can get a little hectic in the morning and evenings. HOWEVER! Evansville is a great middle ground between Madison and Janesville. Make a trip to Stoughton or head south to the Brodhead/Orfordville area. There are lots of cities to explore within a short distance.
Yes, absolutely. Along the beautiful brick Main Street, you’ll find Evansville offers many options for retail stores, including clothing, pharmacy, coffee shops and ceramics. There are delicious restaurants and bars ready for your patronage.
Parks & outdoor activities.
Lake Leota Park, Magnolia Bluff, Brooklyn Wildlife Reserve or Gibbs Lake Park are just a few of the options for walking, hiking, horseback riding, fishing and more within city limits or a short car ride outside of town.
Small town charm.
You know your neighbors. You know the names of the dog next door, down the street and around the block. Many of the events held in town bring out all the locals and you’re likely to see friends and friends of friends.
Evansville is home to a variety of healthcare providers, gyms & fitness centers, massage, physical therapy and chiropractors. For a community of more than 5,500 people, that is quite the offering of services and providers.
