Safer than the city.

Germantown, Wisconsin is one of Milwaukee's far northwest suburbs. Germantown is a safe community with an excellent police presence that cares about the community and keeps locals informed. The housing market is fair with reasonably priced homes and decent property taxes. The public school system is great, with a low student to teacher ratio meaning more attention is given to the individual student.

Shopping and dining are average, and the nightlife is virtually nonexistent. This is more of a family community so the lack of nightlife doesn't bother most residents. Most of the restaurants in town are franchises so for more unique dining and nightlife options residents will travel to inner Milwaukee or one of Milwaukee's other more vibrant suburbs.

Overall, Germantown is considered by locals to be an excellent place to raise a family. With homes being reasonably priced and with an excellent public school system, this lovely community is sure to meet every family's needs. Germantown is a great place for anyone looking to live in a safer community.
