Nestled among large stately trees and bordering the shimmering Lake Michigan coastline are the North Shore suburbs of Shorewood, Glendale, Whitefish Bay, Fox Point and Bayside. Here you will find some of the nicest homes in Milwaukee County. There are the spacious homes of Milwaukee's founding business barons along scenic Lake Drive, the secluded multi-acre estates of River Hills and the brick and stucco homes near the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee campus. All of these communities are defined by water. Shorewood, Whitefish Bay, Fox Point and Bayside are located on Lake Michigan, while River Hills straddles the Milwaukee River.
All of the villages feature a mixture of homes - from elegant, turn-of-the-century mansions to modest, newer homes owned by young families. Residents can stroll through the quaint shops and restaurants located in the downtown areas of Shorewood and Whitefish Bay or relax in the peaceful solitude of Fox Point, Bayside and River Hills, which have large secluded lots.
