the good life

This is it. Beautiful homes. Top-notch schools. Friendly neighbors. Trees. Rivers. Lakes. Bike paths.

www.greenlaketownsquare.com

In the Green Lake area, people care about you. Crime is practically nonexistent. The cost of living is low. And you can get outdoors and enjoy life.

4

A visit to Green Lake gets people thinking what they really want out of life. Come to play? See page 16 Want to stay? See pages 6 and 13

Whether you’re here for the first time or you’re one of our regulars, make sure to visit Town Square, our fabulous community center located in the historic former Green Lake County Courthouse in downtown Green Lake. Opened in 2012, Town Square is a project created entirely by the people of the Green Lake area. Here, you’ll find artists and scientists, athletes and scholars, thinkers and doers … all working and playing together.


Livin’ the Green Lake Dream

cost of living

Groceries. Housing. Utilities. It all adds up. But in the Green Lake area, it doesn’t add up quite so fast. With our low cost of living, you have more money to spend on the things you enjoy. Give yourself a raise…. If you make $50,000 per year, and move here from Dane County, Wisconsin, that same salary gives you an extra $3,510 in disposable income. Moving from DuPage County, Illinois raises that figure to $7,306, and moving from Cook County, Illinois ups it to $7,734 per year.1 What will you do with that extra money?

d

If there is one thing that the Green Lake area lacks, it’s crime. Green Lake County is one of the top five safest places to live in Wisconsin. Kids play outside. Strangers approach you on the street just to say “hi.” And you can take a moonlight stroll without a care in the world.
