Just a short drive from Madison and Milwaukee (off I-94), you’ll find Waukesha Pewaukee. Where you’ll encounter more than you’d expect. Two communities where a sparkling river meets a peaceful lake, a vibrant downtown meets rich historic buildings and travelers meet fun and adventure.
Whether you prefer the outdoors or major attractions you will find options galore. Take in our beautiful parks, lakes, rivers and trails. Enjoy our local events, the arts, live music, and great restaurants. Join us for fun all summer long!
Lake or River Fun
Pewaukee Lake is one of the largest inland lakes in Southeastern Wisconsin. A hub for boating, paddleboarding, swimming, fishing, sunbathing and other water frolics. Come enjoy fun in and around the lake.
Or take a leisurely paddle along the Fox River and hop off at Frame Park to hike or bike the Riverwalk, stroll through the magnificent gardens and picnic at the lagoon in Barstow Plaza. You’ll find all the equipment you need for a day in the parks or on the water at High Roller Fun Rentals.
Hiking, Biking and More Outdoors
Once a glacier, Kettle Moraine State Park has acres of hills, prairie restoration sites, forest, kettle holes and lakes, featuring natural habitats, plants, and animals – even some rare species. There are so many ways to take in the view… by foot, bike, rollerblading or horseback riding. You will also swim, hike and bike your way through our beautiful Waukesha County parks.
If you are into golf, be sure to check out the many courses in the area, including our close proximity to the home of the 2017 U.S. Open – Erin Hills. There are even two places for family-friendly miniature golf to check out.
