A Neighborhood Real Estate Guide to Franklin

Welcome to Franklin

About the Community


Franklin is a beautiful, family-friendly suburb of Milwaukee. Its comfortable location and easy access to the city make it an ideal location for commuters with families. Small parks dot the mostly-residential city, providing pockets of nature and great spaces for families to play. In fact, Franklin is ranked 9th in the state in the category of best places to raise a family in Milwaukee county. Another benefit is that Franklin is affordable—it offers homes from just $100,000 to over $1,000,000, so wherever your family is on the economic scale, Franklin has a home for you, as well as many rental properties.


There are many different parks to choose from in Franklin. Whitnall Park and Wehr Nature center offer a more traditional park experience with lots of trails and trees to enjoy. “The Rock” ski hill, previously known as Crystal Ridge, was recently revamped and is highly praised for its many terrain parks and the many hills that are friendly to skiers and snowboarders of all proficiencies. Kayla’s Playground is mostly a normal park--nice to trails to walk, beautiful scenery--but features an important and special difference to other parks: the playground is wheelchair accessible and lots of fun!

As far as restaurants go, there is just as much variety! Mimosa is a popular brunch joint that offers, of course, mimosas, as well as other traditional brunch foods with a personal twist. Asian Garden, India Palace, and Stummy’s Burger and Deli are just a few of the other awesome options that Franklin offers.
