With great places like Fox River Park to enjoy the great outdoors, Brookfield consistently ranks high as a great place to live. There are tons of bustling restaurants and bars along West Bluemound Road, so residents have their pick for dining. What's more, there are also great shopping destinations.

Oak Creek

Just minutes from Milwaukee, Oak Creek is another great area to rent in. You'll find gorgeous hiking trails and Lake Vista Park which overlooks Lake Michigan. Enjoy a true downtown feel at Drexel Town Square. It has retail shops, restaurants, and a brand new city hall and library.

New Berlin

With its own share of beautiful nature destinations, New Berlin also has several golf courses like the New Berlin Hills. Residents can also go horseback riding at local stables or visit nearby breweries like Eagle Park Brewing & Distilling. Don't forget to check out the apple orchards and pumpkin farms when in season.


You'll find lots to do in Pewaukee. The expansive Pewaukee Lake is host to great fishing, boating, and outdoor activities. If you fly or want to learn how, the Waukesha County Airport is just steps away. Enjoy beachfront dining spots on the lake, or have your pick of restaurants around town.


Greenfield is a cozy-sized suburb not lacking in amenities. Visit Konkel Park for a slew of recreation activities like biking or playing sports. Best of all, throughout the year, the Konkel Park Amphitheater has fun events to enjoy, such as Live at The AMP and the Brews and Bites Trivia Night.
