Whitewater is home to the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. Lose yourself in the hospitality of our small town where strangers not only smile at you, but will stop to chat. Enjoy a meal at one of our locally owned eateries where your server or chef will happily share what’s fun to do in the area. Our local shopkeepers are eager to help you find just the right memento of your time in Whitewater. Rent a bike to make sure you can really experience all our town has to offer.
Whitewater’s galleries, shops and university offer a wide variety of creative outlets. The galleries have workshops and lessons. The university has camps. A local restaurant offers cooking classes. In summer, the city’s Minneiska Water Ski Team hosts shows Saturday evenings on lovely Whitewater Lake.
