Located northwest of downtown Milwaukee, Germantown, Wisconsin is a small community bursting with pride of its German heritage. With the abundance of amenities available to residents and visitors, it is no surprise this area was named as one of the “Best Places to Live” by Money Magazine in 2009. It was also named one of the “Ten Best Towns for Families” by Family Circle magazine in 2011. Germantown has retained its small town feel while still maintaining residential and commercial growth as the largest village by square miles in Wisconsin.
There are plenty of opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors in Germantown. The village’s Parks and Recreation Department maintains 1o public parks as well as access to community programs and special events. The parks offer baseball diamonds, soccer fields, tennis courts and playgrounds. Being close to Kettle Moraine offers village residents many trails for hiking and biking. Also nearby is Pike Lake State Park, a great place for camping, fishing and boating all summer with cross-country skiing trails throughout winter. Six golf courses are located in Germantown, providing ample opportunities for golfers of all skill levels.
Germantown’s Chamber of Commerce offers many activities year-round, with a fantastic series of events highlighting the holiday season this December.
