Welcome back, friends!

This week, on All Things Dane County, I’m going to share with you one of the top-rated neighborhoods in Madison, WI which is located on the near West side: Shorewood Hills. If you’re planning to start a family and love Dane County, then Niche says this is the right neighborhood for you! Not only do they say it's extremely family friendly, but Niche rates it as one of the best suburbs  to live in Wisconsin as well.


Another website that’s fun to use is AreaVibes, which rates neighborhoods on their livability in comparison to Wisconsin,

as well as the rest of the country, based on a variety of criteria. The Village of Shorewood Hills has a pretty stellar report card which features an A+ in the following:

You’re in the market for a home...

but you can’t seem to find that flawless style and structure that fits you. Your taste is specific and you don’t want to deal with creaky floors, dust, ghosts, and all of the other things that old homes bring to the table. You want energy efficiency, the newest home technology, and pristine perfection. You’re most likely planning to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on this and it’s probably not intended to be short-term, so it’s alright to be picky.

As most of you know, Autumn is approaching rapidly which means cooler days are on their way. If you're unfamiliar with Midwest weather, then you've never experienced the bone-chilling freeze we get to enjoy in our Fall and Winter months. Because of this, many of us Wisconsinites often seek the comfort of the indoors before subzero temperatures fully emerge.
