Our breathtaking Lake Michigan shoreline is nearby for walks or bike rides and activities for adults and families. The Milwaukee area is also home to a world-famous art museum, great restaurants, two established Waldorf schools, beautiful state parks for camping and exploring, and a wonderful array of farmers’ markets and natural food stores.
