I loved the fact that Mequon is a very close-knit community that has strong family values, a great public school system, and is very safe. Mequon is also quite health-conscious and has many community events focused on events that unify families and encourage them to get active and have fun while doing it. Being in a suburban area, it doesn't have much of a nightlife (which is a good thing) or very much diversity (which could be improved). All in all, Mequon is a phenomenal suburb that I would encourage anyone in the Milwaukee area seeking a community to strongly consider.

I was born in Israel and moved to Mequon WI Between the ages 2-6. Overall, I remember my experience living there as amazing. I made friends that I am still in touch with today, and I started my golf career there at the age of 3. If I haven’t have lived in WI I would probably not be playing golf today because in Israel, there is only one golf course in the whole country. The weather in Mequon is very different from Israel’s weather. I enjoyed skiing in the winter, and the beautiful colors of the fall. I conclusion, I am very happy that I had the opportunity to live six years of my life in Mequon.
Mequon is an extremely nice area and it is very safe. There are lots of places to eat in the area and one large hospital. Mequon also is the home of Concordia University Wisconsin, a lutheran higher education university. There is not much of a nightlife in Mequon, you would most likely have to go to downtown Milwaukee for that.
