I loved growing up in Whitefish Bay! I went to Holy Family (a Catholic school in WFB) for grades K-8, and then attended Whitefish Bay High School. I had amazing experiences at both. The sense of community here is fantastic, and I also love the many beaches and parks that this suburb offers. WFB has beautiful homes and is overall a great place for families to live!

Quaint Milwaukee suburb. Great views of Lake Michigan, 20 minute ride from Milwaukee. Cute shopping drag on Silver Spring.
Great place to live near the lake! Small community focus with quick access to more Urban areas like Milwaukee and Shorewood
