About Shorewood

Welcome to Shorewood, Wisconsin -- Milwaukee's unique "urban suburb" that blends the best of everything!

The Village of Shorewood was established in 1900, along the shores of beautiful Lake Michigan just north of the city of Milwaukee. Approximately 1.5 square miles with about 14,000 residents, Shorewood is the most densely populated Village in Wisconsin.

Shorewood's density, walkability and location give it a distinct urban feel, yet it also boasts suburban advantages, such as a nationally recognized school district and excellent Village services. With its location on the lake and close to downtown, its excellent schools, its fascinating and forward-thinking people, and its eclectic shops and unique architecture, Shorewood is one of the Milwaukee area's most desirable communities.

The Shorewood business district is experiencing continued growth and momentum, with an influx of unique new businesses as well as mixed-use projects from top area developers such as Mandel Group and Wired Properties.
