Okay, to be real, pretty much everyone from Wisconsin is awesome. But there is something really special about people from small towns in Wisconsin. Here are twelve things that make them really special.
1. They're trusting.
A lot of people don't even lock their doors.
2. They know the value of hard work.
Many work or their families worked on farms, and they understand the labor that goes into that.
3. They can appreciate solitude.
Let's face it--there isn't too much to do in small towns. But they appreciate the little things, like a country road.
4. They support local business.
They might not have a choice, with many big box stores not having locations in small towns. But they are fiercely loyal, and tend to visit the same stores for decades.
5. They know how to have a good time.
The best times are had in little bars like these in a small town with the locals.
6. They have an affinity for nature.
Deer and other wildlife abound, and they smile when they see them frolicking about.
7. They have strong family ties.
Often, many generations live in the same town. No matter what, someone has your back!
8. They have strong values.
Religious or not, small town people have principles that they live by.
9. They are community oriented.
Living in a small town, you can't delegate responsibility to other people. You have to take care of things. And people in small towns rise to the challenge.
10. They're good friends.
They understand that good people are hard to come by and they tend to hang onto the good ones.
11. They are loyal.
People are loyal and long-term, not always onto the bigger, better deal.
12. They really appreciate the outdoors.
They know all the trails and all of the cool places off-trail.
