East Troy. Village Square Park

A small village in southern Wisconsin with a population of just over 4,000 people is surrounded by several lakes, the most famous of which are Booth and Boyle. Among the attractions that might be of interest to tourists, there’s the Electric Railroad Museum in East Troy, the Alpine Valley Music Theatre, the eponymous ski slope, and also the East Troy Bluegrass Festival that is held here.

Perhaps the railway museum is more interesting that other places; not only can you look at locomotives and cars from different eras, but you can also ride them on the museum tracks, the length of which is about 7 miles (~ 11 kilometers).

In front of us, there is a ring road on the central street, which is called Main Street. In the center, we can see the Village Square Park. This is real, non-touristic America. Around the park are the main institutions and companies of East Troy — a real estate agency, a store of theater costumes, saloons with cafes, and even a gas station.
