It is a beautiful city, where businesses are popping up like crazy, beautiful walking paths and parks!
Although Oak Creek is a facade of a place where judgement is real and people aren't neighborly. In Oak creek it is far less likely to socialize with those in the neighborhood. If you enjoy friendly neighbors and local pride this is not the place to move. Kids are isolated to their homes and driven to school blocks from home.
Very very clicky in all aspects throughout all ages.
I feel community is an important aspect of where you choose to live with your family. I'm ready to move but will do some research first.

Oak Creek, Wis is a suburb of Milwaukee. The city is close to downtown Milwaukee and the Lake Michigan beachfront. The city of Oak Creek is expanding and updating many of its shopping centers!
Whether you're at the game repping the Knights, checking out Wisco's only Ikea, chilling at your neighborhood park, eating at Drexel town square, or taking a sip of the world's best tasting water, it's always a good time in The Creek. I'm two miles away from the city in Milwaukee and four miles away from the farmlands of Caledonia, and Oak Creek is a great mix of both of those places with buildings and houses filling up every street, and nice green parks in your backyard.
