Fond Du Lac, Wisconsin, USA

I figured it was time for a thread on this city, so I drove up there with my bicycle and camera (Fujifilm Finepix Z20) on this beautiful day.

Some info first: Fond Du Lac is a city of 42,2xx people (+metro 57,479), located at the South end of Lake Winnebago (Fond Du Lac is supposedly French for "Bottom of the Lake"), the largest lake in Wisconsin (~50km x 16km) after Michigan and Superior. It is also at the Southern portion of the Fox Valley region of the state. The city is home to three colleges; University of Wisconsin-Fond Du Lac, Marian College, and Moraine Park Technical College.



The photos I've taken are mostly of the lake, near the lakefront, in Lakeshore park, and near the downtown area. There are also a few on the East end of the city. In that order.


A boat leaving the harbor.






Seagulls enjoying the sun.













A city just isn't a city unless it has some billboards placed randomly in it.

Only in America.

This would be considered "cheap" right now.

I think it's supposed to be a tornado.






Those last three were of an old firestation, if you couldn't figure that out.

Fond Du Lac's finest in action. The car is a Chevrolet Impala, for anyone that cares.

It came from here.

They just started making this stuff again (by "just started" I seriously mean ~ a week ago).

Showing our (Wisconsin's) German heritage.













More shots of the hotel to come.



More in next post.

Old Volvo wagons rock.





New for this year Chevrolet Malibu. Lot's of them around today.




















I've never eaten there or anything, just took the pic anyway. If you're the owner of this establishment and would like to use my pic for advertisement or something, feel free. Just don't hotlink please.




Boat launching equipment. There's a special launch for this machine, that has a track on each side for the wheels. It then drops the boat into the water below.


This belonged to a ship that sunk or something.




I need a rooftop carrier.

Hills to the East of the city. That section of Highway 151 is new.

There are other grocery and big box stores in the city (as well as a mall). I didn't go to those today. Btw, Festival Foods rocks.

I hope you enjoyed the pics. Fond Du Lac is a really nice city.

If you'd like to use any of the pics, go right ahead. Don't however; credit anyone but myself for them, or hotlink any of them.

It seems pleasant and a nice sized downtown for its size
