In Wisconsin, the perfect mixture of the busy town life and nature scenery is available wherever you go. Madison, less than an hour from Devil's Lake. Milwaukee, if you travel less than half an hour out from it in any direction, you're almost guaranteed to be in a country part of town. You get the best of both worlds and also an actual four seasons compared with other states which don't even get snow. There's so much to see and do, yet when you want to get away from it all, just go to your friend's cabin up north.

The town of Grafton is a very safe place to live. The law enforcement has an efficient procedure in protecting Grafton's citizens and most families have good faith their lives are in good hands. Additionally, the education system is very good and is planning to grow in the next few years. My only problem is the small size and the lack of diversity. The majority of Grafton's residents are white and it often makes the town seem very small.
I wouldn't dare go on a walk in the middle of the night by myself in Milwaukee, but in Grafton I feel safe to do so in any part of town. The cops are always near by, and no one ever gives you a reason to be concerned for your safety.
