Adams County: a recreational wonder with tremendous business potential

Adams County, Wisconsin, home to over 20,000 people, is at the southernmost edge of the Centergy Region, but most people in the Midwest think of it as part of the Dells area. That’s because its communities are just minutes from the popular Wisconsin Dells, an area of unique natural beauty that has been a major tourist destination for generations.

The beauty that draws tourists from Chicago, the Twin Cities, and other areas only increases as you move north into Adams County. The Wisconsin River forms the western boundary of the county, and includes two of the state’s most popular recreational bodies of water, Castle Rock and Petenwell Lakes. So, it’s no surprise that the area is a paradise for boating and fishing, boasting strong populations of walleye, bass, muskies, and northern pike. The county’s wooded areas are a magnet for hunters, while hikers, campers, cyclers, and off-roaders find plenty of places to have fun. And when the snow falls, the trails are taken over by snowmobilers and cross-country skiers. That’s why so many outdoor enthusiasts have chosen to live here -- they get to use more of their free time doing what they love, and the low cost of living helps them keep more of what they earn.

While there’s a lot of fun to be had in Adams County, it’s also a place where companies can get down to serious business. With plenty of available sites and buildings and excellent highway and rail connections, there’s no shortage of opportunities. The already-strong workforce is supported by local education providers who work cooperatively with employers to serve their needs. And the county boasts its own airport (63C), with nearly 3,400 feet of runway and an instrument approach. If you appreciate the outdoors, great connections to the outside world, and an environment that supports growth, your company belongs in Adams County!
