When you explore Wauwatosa, you'll discover five dynamic districts, each with its own sense of character and charm. From a walkable European-style village center full of boutiques and local businesses to the modern Mayfair Mall shopping destination, discoveries are waiting around every corner.
Our charming city is home to a vibrant art scene with a colorful mural district. For a unique art experience, plan your visit in June when we host a national, one-of-a-kind live painting competition. We love our outdoor concerts, farmers’ markets, historic walking tours, public bikes, green spaces, and golf courses. And Wauwatosa’s culinary scene is not to be missed. Local restaurants put a unique twist on everything from brunch to brew pubs and ethnic entrees to upscale dining.
We’re also pretty proud to be neighbors with Milwaukee. Wauwatosa is just minutes from the Milwaukee County Zoo, Milwaukee Bucks, Milwaukee Brewers, Summerfest, and many other Milwaukee attractions. So grab a coffee, a local brew, or a handmade sweet treat and relax in Wauwatosa. A visit to Wauwatosa means enjoying the comfort and charm of a small town, with convenient access to urban attractions. Wauwatosa, Potawatomi for firefly, is here to help you create lasting memories.
