Here in West Milwaukee is very lively. Everything seems to move in a blur. I love it though! It doesn't feel like you live in an empty space. I wouldn't change a thing!

I liked West Milwaukee because the schools were right next to each other. My kids went to the school system and so we went to a lot of different football games with my boys. I really liked at the school they had an PTA where parents could get involved with organizing certain events.
I like how the community comes together to help others. It is a safe community. Everyone is friendly and gets along well.
