Part of it is on beautiful Lake Minnetonka. Very close to Excelsior with good restaurants, fun bars and interesting stores. A long walking/ biking path takes you through forested areas to the east and west. Close to the city but closer to the great outdoors. Lots of parks and lakeside areas to enjoy it, weather permitting!

Good location to schools. High property taxes. Could use better businesses to boost the tax base. The parks and recreation programs are great.
I have lived in Shorewood for 22 years and I love it. It is a very friendly city. It is around a half hour to get to the cities. Shorewood is a beautiful city. It is becoming more developed. I grew up with most families in my neighborhood. Shorewood is definitely a family friendly city.
