I have lived in Oshkosh, Wisconsin my entire adult life and a portion of my childhood. Raising a family in Oshkosh, Wisconsin has provided so many great opportunities for my children through the wonderful attractions and kid-friendly activities. We hardly get bored, since there is always something to do.
