And now, Franklin in the breathtaking Root River Valley is the fastest-growing suburb of Milwaukee, included on Forbes 2009 list of 100 "Best Places to Live." Parks, bike trails, untouched wetlands, prairies, and timberland encircle the town, with urban lures like major sports teams, zoos, museums, concerts, and festivals just a few miles further.
Every academic level here is exemplary. Southwood Glen Elementary School has instituted the cutting edge innovation of "recess before lunch."
