A city to look into which has a good feel is Delafield/Pewaukee. Madison is a nice city and lots of job opportunities, although part of the city is a college town which is quiet during the summer months. I loved living in Milwaukee. Hope this helps!
yes it does. thank you so much.

Even if we have to drive a ways. We wouldn't be going if we couldn't support ourselves. Duh...
Good luck. I am glad to hear the jobs are in place and you have what you are looking for. In my first response I attempted to offer some insight and this was your (snarky) response. Perhaps before you come back a month later to review the responses that apparently weren't all that urgent to you anyway, you could re-read your own comment and consider the fact that you came off pretty sharp too.


Since we never did get any information on where you were coming from or what the comparisons were regarding size of community, COL, or educational systems, I hope they are all that you hope for and you find happily-ever-after. Just one suggestion; when you arrive, don't roll they eyes and use phrases like the bold print above. It won't be well received in small town living.

My sister lives in Plymouth. Nice small town feel. I like walking around and looking at all the old homes. Her kids went to school there and enjoyed the experience. Plymouth is not far from Sheboygan.

I would never ever ever live in Sheboygan. I live in Cedarburg. I grew up in Manitowoc. I can't stand people in Sheboygan. They're all rude as f+×÷. I think they have a drug problem too. So if you want to move to an area that only has hillbillies, drug addicts, and soft core gangbangers by all means. I've seen the quality of people in that city gradually decline over the last decade. I don't know if it will be like Gary Indiana in 30 years but it wouldn't surprise me. The cost of living is affordable because the town is a sh#: hole. Maybe I've just gotten used to Ozaukee county, who knows.

What the heck is going on? She wanted some answers about a City and didn't want to give out personal info and now she's being called a Troll etc. Sounds like some of you are being kind of sensitive and looking for a fight. Just answer the question or don't but stop looking for a fight. I'm sure i'll be called something derogatory now too. But such is the way with Internet bullies

Everyone on this thread has long since moved on from it, but, I do agree that the negative responses were bizarre, ridiculous, and uncalled for.
Some almost sounded like drunk-posting.
Thankfully, real-life Wisconsin is nothing like that. Funny thing, the internet.
From what I know about Sheboygan is that it seems like a scale model of a bigger city. Trying to compare it to an affluent suburban area of Milwaukee is really a bad comparison. Trying to compare it's job offerings to a much larger city also misses the mark. For a town of 50k, it seems to do quite well although I don't know that it's growing much.
It has many really nice neighborhoods and some that could use some sprucing up and a whole lot in between. Nothing seems terribly blighted or abandoned.
The people can come across as kinda redneck or almost sophisticated... again, everything in between as well. Sheboygan is racially, politically, and socioeconomically diverse.
Compared to a lot of similarly sized towns around the country, it punches well above it's weight in amenities. Retail and dining options are decent, but could be better.
Very affordable. We once considered buy a house either there, Two Rivers, or Kewaunee because you can find a nice little house just a block or two from Lake Michigan for 100k-150k and still be in a good neighborhood. Only houses directly on the lake are more consistently expensive... by local standards anyway.
I know this is too-little too-late for the long-gone OP, but the Wisconsin forum isn't particularly active so I thought I'd add to it a little...
