Welcome to Shorewood
Welcome to Milwaukee’s unique “urban suburb” – a blend of 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.
