Find Out What Top 10 List Appleton, Wis. Just Made

Posted: Wed-Mar-2012

Gallup does an annual survey on the State of Well Being, looking at nearly 200 metro areas, with residents scoring their town based on a scale of ideal living conditions.  At #10 on the list this year – Appleton, Wisconsin.  The overall well-being rankings represent an average of rankings in six specific categories: life evaluation, emotional health, work environment, physical health, healthy behaviors, and access to basic necessities.  Interestingly enough, while the pollsters rely on people’s own assessments of how they feel, the self-reported scores tend to agree with objective data measuring physical and emotional health.  So, you know where this is going.  Perhaps for your own physical and emotional health you should plan a little B&B getaway to Appleton.  There’s the Roost Bed & Breakfast, Appleton’s newest inn.  It’s a nice retreat whether you’re traveling for leisure or business and we love that all five of their rooms have a fireplace, air-jet whirlpool tub and high-end bedding.  The Victorian Franklin Street Inn combines the elegance of the 19th century with amenities of the 21st century, is Travel Green Wisconsin certified, and offers a real plus in that you can enjoy an on-site massage!  [caption id="attachment_512" align="aligncenter" width="300" caption="At The Roost, if you're expecting chickens you'll quickly get over any disappointment at finding none with a relaxing soak in your in-room whirlpool tub.
