Muskego is one of the safest communities in Wisconsin and it makes residents feel comfortable to live their life as they please! Muskego has been continuously growing as I have lived here and more opportunities for jobs and entertainment are being created! I would like to see a lot more diversity and celebration of diversity in Muskego. I think that exposure to different ways of life would be beneficial for all residents.

Muskego is a nice-safe family friendly place to live. I have lived here on and off my whole life and it is someplace I would call my home. I plan to live in Muskego my whole life. Even though there are limitations for activities during the cold months, it is booming in the summer. I would suggest this historic city to anyone!
The location is wonderful. It is not too far from the city, and has areas of rural and suburban. There are many options for recreation in the city of Muskego, as well as shopping centers and restaurants. The school system also has strong academics.
