Welcome to Shorewood, Wisconsin, a charming urban village in the European tradition with the spirit and flair of the future. Tucked into just the right geographic spot for comfortable living, we’re the first suburb north of the city of Milwaukee – bordered by Lake Michigan on the east and the Milwaukee River on the west. We’re close to everything, yet a unique community all our own. With a nationally recognized school district, fascinating people, eclectic shops, award-winning restaurants and unique architecture, Shorewood is more than a convenient suburb of Milwaukee. Take a closer look and you’ll discover that when we say we’re just two feet from everything, it’s more than a promise – it’s our way of life!
