I love this town! It’s very nice and beautiful scenery. It has a lot of shop that are small business. Friendly people. Great school district.
Pewaukee is an amazing city. When I first moved to Pewaukee, I was nervous. I knew absolutely no one. But within a month of being at the Pewaukee School District, I knew everyone in my grade. Everyone was kind, but the fact that pencils would randomly go missing was annoying. The teachers are so focused on helping the students who need extra help, enriching the community. Pewaukee lake is the gathering space for both Pewaukee City and the Village of Pewaukee. We are also home to one of the best restaurants ever, Asiana. The police are very active and kind, and as a result there is very little crime.
