Cedarburg is a wonderful place to raise a family, however, it severely lacks diversity, as a result, our town is known by many as the CedarBubble. Residents seem to lack a sense of adventure and remain content never leaving the 'nest'.

Since I lean quite left politically, it has been hard to integrate within the larger community since this area leans hard right and they quite vocal about it - making for sometimes very awkward situations with friends and neighbors.

This city is wonderful! The downtown is amazing with cute little shops, wonderful festivals, and nice people. There is always something to do, places to go, people to see. Parks are clean and nice. The river runs through the town which makes it a beautiful place to visit, take pictures, gather.
Cedarburg is a super fun town!! It is historic, emphasizes the arts, bustling with activity -- seeing the town, walking on the cobblestone, visiting the coffee shops. It emphasizes schooling, to which the community largely supports. I enjoy living here and always feel safe! Sometimes the community can be exclusive, which is unfortunate, but truly it is a nice place to live and one good for raising children.
