This neighborhood is 20 miles north of the city in a rural area, and a just few miles away from Lake Michigan. It is accessible by I-94 and near to the Town of Cedarburg and the Town of Grafton. You will find the old gristmill as the center of the community, which now is the Cedar Creek Brewing Company.

There are two historic districts, Washington Avenue and Columbia Road. There are many summer festivals to attend, and a covered bridge to see, the last in Wisconsin.
This community became the Village of Whitefish Bay in 1982. This neighborhood is by Lake Michigan and hosts Big Foot Beach State Park, a 272 acre green space. The schools in this area are considered to be excellent. There is lots of diversity in Whitefish Bay including the types of housing available.

Inside the neighborhood is South Shore Park, a place for recreation and fun. The Beulah Brinton Community Center gives residents a place to come together throughout the year.
