Moving from Florida to Wisconsin, any tips ?

Jump to last reply

Hi all,

I will shortly be moving from (sunny) South Florida to Wisconsin, for job purposes.

The job itself is in the Pewaukee/Waukesha area, and I would like to stay close by (around 5 miles, rent not own).

I have a few questions:

1)What is life like in Waukesha ? I know this is a broad question, but an answer for Florida would be: "life is about swimming, tennis, beaches, malls, hot summers, great winters, generally unfriendly people".

2)Is there any advantage to living in Milwaukee proper rather than in Waukesha ?

3)What is the cost of living like ? On average how much would a family of 2 adults spend on groceries per week ?

4)How scared do I need to be of the Wisconsin winters ? I have always lived in Florida, and have never seen snow.

Thanks,
RS
