Relocating to Milwaukee? Consider Shorewood, Wisconsin

The Shorewood Community

As the “urban forest” of the North Shore, Shorewood is known for its beautiful architecture, excellent schools, and commitment to sustainability. The village is the Bird City of Wisconsin, top tree city, and one of the first communities in Wisconsin to have LED traffic signals and a curbside recycling program, thanks to the Sustainable Shorewood Action Plan.

As a vibrant community of families and lifelong residents, it was named one of the United States’ four “Best Intergenerational Communities” by the MetLife Foundation - and just like nearby Whitefish Bay, Shorewood’s residents feel a strong community bond and pride in their home. Shorewood is the trendy hotspot of the North Shore! The village has five parks - if it’s hot out, you’re sure to find people on the many beaches and playgrounds.

Atwater Park

Gorgeous Atwater Park is Shorewood’s premier green space.

Located on the shores of Lake Michigan, Atwater Park has served as a gathering place, recreational destination, and festival grounds for nearly 100 years. The park offers something for everyone including a refreshing respite from the summer heat at the beach below.

Got an athlete? Shorewood’s recreation department offers programs for everyone from dodgeball to snowboarding. Cyclists will enjoy a bike-friendly atmosphere anywhere they go, whether riding on the road or enjoying a trip down the Oak Leaf Trail; competitive bikers can try their luck in the Shorewood Criterium Cycling Classic. If you forget your bike at home, have no fear! Shorewood has plenty of Bubbler bike stations for when it’s just too nice to drive.

Discover all the things to do in Shorewood

Every foodie can find a favorite restaurant in Shorewood - from the Instagram able Three Lion’s Pub to luxurious Lake Park Bistro, classic Benji’s Deli and our new favorite Buttermint, there truly is something for every palate. Need a quick pick-me-up before work? Stop in at Collectivo for a fair-trade cappuccino and a pastry, or pop by Starbucks to grab the latest Frappuccino flavor. Any passionate coffee connoisseur who’s looking for more of an experience, however, will appreciate the hipster vibe and artisanal drinks of Fiddleheads.

If the attractions and activities of Shorewood itself aren’t enough, the businesses, museums, and festivals of metropolitan Milwaukee are just a short 4 miles south by way of Interstate 43 or scenic Lake Drive, making a fun night out a few minutes away!
