City GuideShorewood

"This maple-studded town [of Shorewood] on Lake Michigan dotes on its reputation as Milwaukee's most liberal suburb." - Howell Raines, New York Times, 1979

Shorewood is a rather small village located in Milwaukee County, Wisconsin, and is home to more than 13,162 people. This place is the perfect answer for those who are looking for the neighborliness of a small community, while still enjoying the amenities of a big city. In fact, the best way to describe Shorewood is by calling it an "urban village." The village is situated between the Milwaukee River and Lake Michigan, with a rich history behind it. The area originally belonged to the Sioux and Algonquin Indians until 1832 when the land was purchased from the Menominees by the U.S. government. The area was given its present name in 1917. The water in the area was a huge draw for early settlers who helped establish the community. Are you looking for an apartment in Shorewood? Then you will find information to help you make the best selection here. We have information on places to live in Shorewood, including premier apartments, 3-bedroom houses for rent and other types of rental housing.

Moving to Shorewood

Are you concerned about the prospective cost of living in Shorewood? This is only natural and is one of the considerations for making a move to a new city. While Shorewood is not the cheapest area in Wisconsin, it is still slightly cheaper than the national average. Other things to consider include the crime statistics in the area. The good news is that the crime rate index here is lower than both the Wisconsin and national average. The amenities here are also more than adequate with several libraries, nine parks, 20 nearby schools, more than 20 nearby restaurants and eateries, as well as several shopping centers.

Transportation

There are two Amtrak stations within 30 miles of the village center, and there are various local public bus transportation options and taxi services.

Interact with the Neighbors

One of the quickest ways of getting a feel for a new neighborhood is to interact with the people who already live there. They have a first-hand knowledge of how things work and will most likely tell you about life in that area.

Do not feel you have to sign a lease the moment it is presented to you. Take your time and go over the fine print to ensure there are no hidden clauses in there that might rear their ugly heads in the future.

Those in the market for apartments to rent will especially find it useful to talk to the tenants who have lived in the building for some time to get their side of the story regarding living there. You can rest assured that most tenants with a grudge or grievance will not hesitate to unload the whole tale on you. At least, you will learn about the mice in the pantry and the cockroaches in the cupboards that the landlord forgot to mention.

Neighborhoods in Shorewood

Shorewood may be on the smaller side, but it still boasts two distinct neighborhoods.

Village Center: Well, this is America, and every village has a village center, which is usually the main hub of activities in that village. Shorewood is no different, and the Village Center neighborhood is actually quite affordable, with surprisingly numerous housing options. Most villages tend to keep the buildings in the center in the single-home and small apartment variety, but Shorewood has apartment complexes, high-rise apartment buildings and small studio apartments, in addition to the other options. Let's not forget this is an "urban village," so it is not so surprising that it has the feel of the big city. The demand for housing here is high and available housing is limited, so you have to get your game on in order to find the place you want in this neighborhood. Most of the houses here were built between the late 1930 and 1990s. The commute from here to work is quite short, lasting an average of 15 minutes. The Outpost Pub & Provisions is a favorite restaurant among locals.

E. Glendale Avenue / N. Wilson Drive: This is a pricier part of town, with housing options that are limited to small apartment buildings and single-family homes. There is not much "village" in this neighborhood because it is very much urban in all aspects. Most of the homes here are quite old, with a lot of them dating back to the 1940s or before. The demand for housing here is not as strong as that of the Village Center, meaning you can easily find something in this neighborhood. The commute from here is a bit longer than that of the Village Center, lasting between 15 to 30 minutes, depending on your destination. This is a shorter commute than some people in the country face in their neighborhoods, with some averaging one hour or more either way. If you're a cyclist, head over to Rainbow Jersey Bicycles to get your gear.

Living in Shorewood

The Shorewood community usually has a roster of events lined up throughout the year, and you could participate in any of those. Other options include visiting places of interest, such as the Discovery World Museum of Science, Economics & Technology, a museum that is dedicated to all things science and technology.

You could also visit any of the several parks within and near the village, including the Big Foot Beach State Park on Geneva Lake.
