I am relocating to the Milwaukee area in Fall 2012. Can anyone provide information on areas that have diversity AND good schools? Public is my preference, but a good private school that is diverse is not out of the question. A neighborhood that is walkable with parks and shops would be nice. Areas of the country that have similar neighborhoods would be Germantown (Memphis,TN) Broad Ripple (Indianapolis, IN), Oak Park and Hyde Park (Chicago, IL). Any information can provide would be greatly appreciated. Please don't say all the burbs are great, as all burbs are not created equal and diversity is an issue.

I'm guessing Wauatosa would be your best fit in terms of diversity. Brown Deer can also fit your diversity requirement but is not walkable at all.

Default Northwest side of Milwaukee great area

I have lived in Milwaukee since 1986, with the exception of a couple of years.The Northwest side of Milwaukee is a great place. I love that I can get pretty much drive to Downtown Milwaukee within 15 to 20 minutes. When I lived in Chicago, the commute was always too crowded and maddening.

I live in a very diverse area on the Northwest side. My favorite sections include anywhere from 68th Street going west, and anywhere from Capitol Drive going North. Milwaukee has beautiful homes and great parks for walking.

I am considering relocating to Indiana this Fall due to a business contract, and will miss my current Milwaukee neighborhood due to its beauty.
