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.
I grew up here - it’s an idyllic little suburb right on the lake with good schools, and quaint little parks, and a fun-sized shopping district on Silver Spring.
