A young girl is all smiles as she crawls through the mud.

Fond du Lac

The first light of dawn hits the water’s surface, and welcomes optimistic fishermen to Lake Winnebago. A cup of coffee among friendly strangers turns into a recommendation for the just-perfect lakeside dinner later that night. A bike ride through picturesque rural country, past idyllic barns and over rolling hills, ends with a story-filled lunch at an outdoor café. An afternoon on the water is made even better with a must-stop ice cream treat. An evening stroll through a resurgent downtown reveals art galleries, shops and boutiques to reward the cultured eye, culminating in satiating that well-earned appetite at a classic Wisconsin supper club.

With its convenient, easy-to-reach location at the base of Lake Winnebago and surrounded by Kettle Moraine State Forest and the Horicon Marsh, Fond du Lac welcomes outdoor enthusiasts of all ages, any time of the year. And, "welcome" is not taken lightly here, by the way. You'll be hard pressed to find a more welcoming community in Wisconsin.
