ABOUT THE NORTH SHORE
Moving to The North Shore?
Shorewood is an attractive, progressive, established community, and is a great option for those planning on moving to the North Shore. Shorewood is the first suburb north of Milwaukee. Shorewood residents enjoy a wonderful blend of quaint, quiet living and all the modern conveniences of the big city. There exists a high quality of life, while preserving diversity amongst different age groups, races, tastes, and backgrounds. Shorewood’s award-winning schools believe in maintaining a low student-teacher ratio to ensure that all children will succeed. Enjoy the beauty of Shorewood’s stately lakeside homes, the Village’s unique commercial strip with trendy shops and cafes, and the gorgeous beach and park. New condominiums that provide beautiful, carefree living in the village center and the diverse architectural styles of the historic homes give Shorewood the reputation of being truly unique.
Come and experience this charming, exquisite, lakeside community that is rich in history! This Village of roughly 14,000 residents is filled with beautiful, architecturally diverse homes, stretched along the western bluffs of Lake Michigan in Milwaukee’s North Shore. The living is easy, with corner coffee shops, park-like streets, day spas, frequent block parties, and fabulous award-winning schools! There is no industry in Whitefish Bay so the quality of life is quiet and peaceful. School children are usually within blocks of their schools and many residents utilize the sidewalks to jog, run errands, or greet neighbors. Festivals and small-town special events bring neighbors together often- the Pumpkin Carving and Lighting Festival, and 4th of July Festival. The main streets are closed off for special events like: the Professional Bicycle Race, Christmas Parade, 4th of July, and Homecoming Parade, and for bands to play in front of Sendiks, where you will see children and parents dancing together in the street. The Village of Whitefish Bay is waiting for you!
Glendale is an exciting, progressive city bordering the Milwaukee Metro area and the North Shore. Glendale has been experiencing a reawakening in recent years, with beautiful new brick-paved boulevards, new street lamps, and a new attitude! Business opportunities abound in Glendale, as North Shore residents await new store openings at the upscale Bayshore Mall. New corporations, hospitals, and other enterprises with beautiful new and rehabilitated buildings are springing up to join the established ones already there. Glendale residents enjoy lower taxes due to the commercial tax base footing the bulk of the tax bill. There are many lovely neighborhoods in Glendale to choose from, with grand sized lots, and tree lined streets. Glendale also prides itself on a few newer condo developments for easy living, an amazing four county parks within its city limits, and award-winning schools!
Nestled in a pocket of land along Lake Michigan’s valuable shoreline, the Village of Fox Point boasts excellent schools; beautiful homes of varying sizes, styles, and price ranges; and seasonal activities, like winter ice skating at Stormonth school, and 4th of July Festivities.

This tranquil North ShoreVillage of gently curving streets lined with trees and quiet neighborhoods is home to approximately 9,000 residents. The Village houses the prestigious Cardinal Stritch University and the Indian Creek Woods. There is a place for everyone in Fox Point!
Just North of Fox Point along the lovely shores of Lake Michigan is the Village of Bayside. Bayside is a community of approximately 4200 residents who enjoy being just far enough away from the downtown area to enjoy serene peacefulness, but close enough to drive there in 15 minutes via the interstate or via beautiful Lake Drive. Stunning ravines and the natural conservancy center, the Schlitz Audubon, are available for wonderful walks for the nature lover. There is no industrial use of land in Bayside, with 81% of the land used for residential, 15% for natural conservancy, and 4% is for commercial/recreational/transportation. Seasonal festivities in Bayside include the annual Fourth of July parade, annual picnic in September, and the spooky Halloween “Fright Night” party.
