I moved here 1.5 years ago right before the COVID shelter in place order went into effect. The thing I like most about Mequon is that I can walk every where. People are neighborly but courteous enough to mind their own business. Yet, If you're in trouble, you can bet, your neighbors know you and will help you out. I walk my dog every day from Mequon through Thiensville and we are greeted along the way by shop owners, officers, fire personnel, children, etc. It's a wonderful community. I love living in a place that feels safe enough to venture out every day even in these uncertain times.

A great place to that is surrounded by small towns! Mequon is a large community that has many opportunities for community involvement, social events, and food options.
Recently my family made the choice to move to Mequon. My grandparents live out in the Mequon-Thiensville neighborhoods. It is a very calming area to live in. There are always people out walking with their dogs, or just taking a jog. The food life is also up and coming, with more higher end food places, for example they recently just finished the Mequon public Market. I do wish there were more family type restaurants such as Olive Garden, or Chili’s. This area is one of the best districts in the state. This also makes it more expensive to live in this area..
