Visit Milwaukee

About Us

Wauwatosa (2014 pop. 47,134), "Tosa" to the locals, invites you to come and enjoy its rich hospitality. This city borders the western side of urban Milwaukee, only five miles from Miller Park - home of the Milwaukee Brewers! Both the small town and the big city are reflected in the shopping, dining, hospitality, sports and outdoor recreation available here. During the summer months, we invite you to stop by the historic visitors center called “the Little Red Store,” built in 1854 and is the oldest commercial building in our city.

Wauwatosa is truly unique. Located in the center of the Milwaukee metro area, "Tosa" is only 15 minutes from downtown Milwaukee. Our beautiful neighborhoods are walkable and bike-friendly. Enjoy beautiful parkways, our community pool and new beer garden. Many of the metro area's best restaurants are located in Wauwatosa. Explore the newest hot spots in four dynamic shopping and dining destinations: The Village, East Tosa, Mayfair and Mayfair Collection. Come for a visit and I know you will want to return time and time again.

Kathy Ehley
Mayor of Wauwatosa
