About

Located in southeastern WI, Waukesha is an established community directly west of Milwaukee.  It’s a perfect mixture of big city convenience with a small town feel uniquely endowed to nurture both family and career.  Having a slightly more rural feel than Milwaukee County, Waukesha has proximity to a wealth of shopping options and entertainment venues within its community while still maintaining it’s low key vibe.  Waukesha acts as Milwaukee’s quieter, sweeter younger sibling with 59% of the housing being single family homes.       

Waukesha Attractions

This idyllic city offers so much in the way of shopping and entertainment.  Up and coming commerce hubs like The Shoppes at Fox River and Fox Run Shopping Center provide ample options for clothing, grocery, and homegoods.

Downtown Waukesha is a picturesque scene, with streets adorned with historical buildings and a multitude of dining options to fit all tastes.  Located in beautiful Cutler Park, The Waukesha Public Library is one of the largest in the area, featuring an abundance of educational opportunities and events for all ages.  Nearby, walk the paths that harmoniously follow the Fox River through mature woods, wetlands, and abundant arrays of wildflowers.  

Waukesha is equally appealing to activity seekers.  With the YMCA located downtown and the numerous parks, paths, and boardwalks, there is no end of options to motivate your exercise routine or to relish Wisconsin’s exquisite summer months.  Within a few miles of the city limits are state parks like Lapham Peak offering theater performances in an outdoor amphitheater, miles of hiking trails, and a tower located at the highest point of elevation in Waukesha County with sights of southern WI and the northern Illinois border.  There are myriads of options for winter activities like snowshoeing, skiing, skating, and more!
