A perfect mix of historic and hip, downtown Waukesha attracts both local residents and visitors from across the state of Wisconsin. Downtown City of Waukesha is home to countless shops, salons, restaurants and professional service businesses, most of which are independently owned.  Downtown Waukesha's attraction is attributed to the uniqueness of the downtown merchants and special events that fill the city and the abundance of urban green and winding trails that surround the city.  Whether you’re here for a day, a week, or a lifetime, we hope you enjoy your visit.
