Clearly Mount Pleasant and Caledonia residents like to sleep in their respective communities and play in Racine and Milwaukee. But are our quiet little corners of the earth really that boring?

After Movoto.com named our two communities in the top two spots of the most boring places in Wisconsin, our readers had a few things to say about the designation. Check out the conversation on our Facebook feed.

  • Casey Rouse Because they’re all working.
  • Annie Nicole Schroeder I love caledonia its peaceful
  • Brian Sweeny The reason you dont see a lot of towns from up north and such is because they only included places with over 20,000 people.
  •  Jeri L Scott I can finally say Mount Pleasant is number one in something.
  • Tamara Lynn Dunn They clearly don’t know about our gorgeous trails and vibrant equine culture in Caledonia.. Poor souls.
  • Brian Sweeny Correct me if im wrong but i only see 2 from Racine county
  • Richard Inboff I’d rather be bored than traumatized.
  • Dave Lui Its true!! Add Caledonia to the top of that list though. Caledonia is soooo boring. Trees n horses oh n a busted up kmart. Lol. Jus sayin hope to not offend anyone with TRUTH.
