I love Lake Country and in particular the Oconomowoc Area. It is beautiful country, friendly, welcoming, and full of local businesses.

Oconomowoc has beautiful old homes and lots of new construction, however housing is incredibly expensive and many people cannot afford to live in town and chose to live in surrounding towns instead
Very friendly community, people will talk to you in stores, always smiling, very welcoming
