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.
Rapidly changing, the city is growing bigger everyday. Used to take only a few minutes to drive places, however with all the new businesses takes longer. There's always construction!!! I think Oak Creek has a wide variety of restaurants, actives, and shopping. Very family oriented. Close to Downtown.
