Located just 15 minutes west of downtown, Wauwatosa is an urban enclave with timeless charm. Known affectionately by locals as “Tosa,” the city is a walkable destination comprised of five dynamic districts. Experience public murals, stroll the European-style village center, or shop local boutiques. Enjoy the outdoor parks, paths, and golf courses. The city is home to a host of locally-owned restaurants and bakeries each providing their own twist on brunch, brew pubs, and every kind of dining. Wauwatosa, or “firefly” in Potawatomi, is full of countless corners of magic.
Less than a five-minute drive to the Milwaukee County Zoo (link), ten minutes to American Family Field, home of the Milwaukee Brewers, and only fifteen to the Milwaukee Art Museum, a visit to Wauwatosa means enjoying the comfort and charm of a small town with the convenient access to urban attractions. Plan your Tosa adventure!
