    Pewaukee's Lakefront Park is a hit during the summer months.

Located in the heart of southeastern Wisconsin’s Lake Country, Waukesha and Pewaukee pair urban sophistication with small town charm. Explore historic downtown Waukesha for its architecture, boutiques, galleries, award-winning dining and pubs. Then, stroll the riverwalk that leads to picturesque Frame Park. Just five miles to the north, the city of Pewaukee hugs the eastern shore of 2,500-acre Pewaukee Lake. Set sail on the lake, fish, swim, paddle or boat. Ashore, enjoy the many shops and restaurants that ring the lake. Both communities offer weekly music and water ski shows, championship golf, relaxing parks and trails to bike, hike and cross-country ski. In southwestern Waukesha County near Genesee Depot, you can tour Ten Chimneys, the eclectic summer home of Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne, the greatest acting team in the history of American theatre. Eight miles further southwest in Eagle, Old World Wisconsin is a 600-acre “living history museum” that showcases 65 historical buildings in five ethnically themed villages.
