This pleasant Fox River community located a few miles north of Appleton encompasses several interesting stops. The river’s natural beauty is a soothing backdrop for all of them. The 1000 Island Environmental Center is a 240-acre preserve whose miles of boardwalk trails provide access for all. The facility harbors a herd of Whitetail deer, with a large indoor display of North American, Asian and African mounted animals. Nearby, the Wisconsin International Raceway’s oval track and quarter-mile drag strip have challenged the region’s top racers, including the legendary Dick Trickle.
