I have lived in Delafield my entire life and I couldn't imagine living anywhere else! I attended Lake Country School and they are one of the top public schools in Wisconsin. I made childhood friends that I am still friends with to this day, and probably will be for the rest of my life. The downtown area is so cute and there are great restaurants to go to. Nagawicka Lake is in Delafield as well as Lapham Peak so there are things to do outdoors if you would like!

It's a beautiful town, a friendly neighborhood, a lot of local small restaurants and places! Very happy to be a resident. My son is a student at a Cushing elementary school and loves all the teachers and kids. This school is graded 9 out of 10. Our house is within a walking distance from the forest preserve with bicycle trails and beautiful nature. Delafield is surrounded by lakes where you can fish.
Delafield is a fantastic area filled with incredible people. During the summertime, there are local beaches with tons of fun activities to keep the whole family entertained. Downtown there are several small shops that are great to stop in to buy something and support the local economy. During the holidays, there are always community events to help everyone celebrate together. No matter what time of year, Delafield is a wonderful place to explore!
