New Berlin Reviews
New Berlin is a small community, with that being said there are well over 50,000 residents, but everyone stays connected. the police come immediately when needed, but they can also pests from 10pm-5am, they do a great job when needed but are too focused on small crimes. They will arrest and book you for city ordinance tickets, excessive if you ask me. But all In all if you have a family with children this is the place to be! No criminal activity has a chance.
Before I moved to New Berlin I lived in Milwaukee. Although the two cities are a mere 10-15 mins away from each other, they are distinctively different areas. Milwaukee is obviously much more upbeat, with the hustle and bustle of a larger city, while New Berlin is a more quiet, suburban area. There are still several things to do in this city; we have a large variety of restaurants, a movie theatre, a trampoline park, many playgrounds, and much more. This is an excellent area to raise children, as it is very safe with a low crime rate. It is the best of both worlds, as it is still a suburban area, but a quick 10-minute drive is all it takes to get to the city to enjoy the many perks of Milwaukee.
I live in the town of Elkhorn (about 45 minutes from New Berlin) and am a student at New Berlin West High school. Living in Elkhorn, I am close to East Troy, Burlington, and Lake Geneva, however, New Berlin is by far my favorite city of the four. New Berlin is a great place to go out with friends! Whether eating at one of the many restaurants including Qdoba, Buffalo Wild Wings, Panera Bread, McDonald's, Noodles and Company, Starbucks, Texas Roadhouse, Mods Pizza and more, to simply going on a date to the Marcus Ridge Movie Theater, Minigolfing or Stone Fire Pizza!
