Experience Ripon—this isn’t just a message for nature enthusiasts wanting to surround themselves with acres of parks, trails, rivers, and lakes. Ripon has long been a friendly destination energized by community celebrations, eclectic shops, tasty cuisine, and historic character. All who visit feel welcome by the city’s charm and natural beauty.

For the epicurean, we have hip restaurants, dog-friendly businesses, a local winery, and a brewery featuring handcrafted artisan beers. The outdoors person will find what they’re looking for in one of our many parks, on our one-mile-loop mountain bike trail, and along the renowned Mascoutin Valley State Trail. And if you’re a golfer, you’re in for a treat on some of the state’s top-rated courses.

Community is at the heart of Ripon. Those living here know the great educational opportunities offered to students and families and the robust business economy that delivers wonderful work places. Ripon is a place people not only gather, but come together—a friendly small town that offers the vibrancy and amenities of a much larger city.

“An adventure awaits you in Ripon, and we can’t wait to greet you.”
