FOX CITIES CHAMBER OF COMMERCE: Fox Cities CVB Awards $175,000 in Grants to Enhance the Visitor Experience


Fox Cities Chamber of Commerce issued the following announcement on  June 18.

The Fox Cities Convention & Visitors Bureau recently awarded two separate Tourism Development Grants totaling $175,000. The first, in the amount of $75,000, went to the History Museum at the Castle for their Guitar: The Instrument that Rocked the World exhibition. The second, in the amount of $100,000, was awarded to the City of Menasha for their Province Terrace Trail.

“Both of these grant recipients offer an amenity that will benefit visitors and locals alike,” commented Chris Haese, chair of the CVB’s Tourism Development Grants Committee. Haese continued by saying, “With each grant we award, the CVB continues to play a role in developing and supporting activities and trails that enhance the visitor experience.”

The Guitar exhibition will make its only Wisconsin appearance at the History Museum at the Castle. It will have visitors enjoying over 70 guitars and artifacts as well as offering 18 hands-on interactives. There will be many events occurring throughout the summer and fall to tie into the exhibit until it closes in January 2020.

The Province Terrace Trail, located in the City of Menasha, will offer pedestrians safe access to the south Appleton trail network as well as connect them to the Fox Cities Friendship Trail and the Loop the Little Lake trail systems. The trail consists of a 1,300 ft long, 12 ft wide boardwalk that meanders you through nature, where you can spot birds, frogs, turtles, deer and more. It is bike-friendly and gives walkers, runners and bikers alike the opportunity to enjoy a unique wooded, wetland environment in the heart of an urbanized community.
