Located just 15 minutes west of downtown, Wauwatosa is an urban enclave with a charming small town feel. The city is home to the Milwaukee Regional Medical Center as well as several colleges and universities. Stroll through the picturesque, European-style village center where the streets are lined with historic buildings and upscale boutiques, a French cafe/patisserie, handcrafted chocolatier, fine dining and a wine bistro. Find some of the Milwaukee area’s best shopping, thanks to Mayfair (home to the state’s first full-line Nordstrom, The Container Store and Kate Spade New York amongst other retailers) and the Mayfair Collection (where you’ll find Saks Off Fifth, Nordstrom Rack, Ulta and more). Tosa’s neighborhoods are filled with unique local shops and restaurants, and many of Milwaukee’s most popular spots are opening up second locations in this neighboring city. You’ll also find entertainment in the form of street festivals, live music, theatrical performances, a locally-owned movie theater and so much more.
