Grafton, WI is a Charming Village a Short Drive from Milwaukee with German Roots

Grafton, WI is a wonderfully slow paced and quiet village to live in that's only about 20 miles from Milwaukee. While Grafton, WI itself is a quiet and slow paced town, finding something to do is not a far drive. There's hardly any crime at all, the schools are thriving, and it's not too difficult to make a living whether you stay in town, work at home, or drive to the outskirts of Wisconsin for work.

The summers are fairly cold and the winters are typically drenched in piles of snow, but if you like winter weather and have thick blood you'll fit right in. There's so many beautiful homes that scatter Grafton and theres a giant river that runs right through the center of town.

Everything there is to do in Grafton either includes a park, time at the river, or visiting a business down near the river front. There's many places to catch a bite to eat, a gym, and beautiful scenery all around. Going to school in Grafton is great too; everyone is seeking to graduate and improve upon the foundation given to us by our community. Grafton is a wonderful home!
