Bloomberg's BusinessWeek.com has released its "Best Affordable Suburbs in America 2010" rankings. It highlights one community in each state "where families can live well for less and enjoy good schools, low crime and reasonable commutes."
Its pick for Wisconsin and Milwaukee? Hales Corners. Here's what Business Week had to say about Hales Corners.
"This village, only 3.2 miles square, provides residents with access to shopping centers, two pools in the Hales Corners County Park, Whitnall Park Golf Course, Boerner Botanical Gardens and Wehr Nature Center. It is a short drive to General Mitchell International Airport and the shore of Lake Michigan. It is part of the Whitnall School District, which has four public schools and a charter school."
