The best of both worlds. Historic downtown to a sun-drenched lakefront. Fun-filled attractions to robust outdoor recreation. Unique cuisines to hearty traditional menus. Luxury hotels to a downtown boutique hotel. Close to big cities, yet far from the madness. All this, and more, makes Waukesha Pewaukee the best of both worlds — a special place where charming meets contemporary.
