Wauwatosa
Wauwatosa is a white-collar community blessed with a healthy
mixture of upscale homes, office buildings, retail developments and
medical facilities. One of the earliest settlements in the area, it was
the location of the first bridge across the Menomonee Valley.
Ideally situated at the center of the metropolitan area, Wauwatosa
has two commercial districts – the quaint and historic downtown
area located in the valley near N. 76th Street and W. State St., and
Mayfair Road
, which is lined with office buildings and commercial
businesses.
Mayfair Road is also home to
Mayfair Mall
, which is one of
Milwaukee’s largest and most popular regional shopping centers.
The historic
Washington Highlands
has long been a sought-after
residential location, but the city boasts many other charming
subdivisions as well, all of which offer suburban living with close
proximity to downtown Milwaukee.
West Allis/West Milwaukee
With a population of 60,700,
West Allis
ranks as one of the largest
cities in Wisconsin. Once the home of the Allis-Chalmers farm
equipment manufacturing empire, it has been a blue-collar town,
but has witnessed a dramatic increase in home sales to young
professionals. It is home to
State Fair Park
, which hosts the annual
Wisconsin State Fair
, and the
Pettit National Ice Center
. The city
also boasts the region’s largest
Farmer’s Market
, which is held
several times a week during the summer months on National
Avenue, west of 66th Street.
West Milwaukee
is a small, formerly
industrial area that has been transformed into a residential and
commercial community along South 43rd Street near
Miller Park
,
home of the Milwaukee Brewers professional baseball team.
Brown Deer
Think golf and you’ll think of
Brown Deer
, which is located just
north of Milwaukee and a short drive from downtown. The
Milwaukee River
and
Brown Deer Park
form the village’s eastern
border. A modern community located just west of the exclusive
village of River Hills, it developed rapidly after World War II and is
home to a diverse mix of professional families. It is also a golfer’s
haven, with no fewer than two country clubs and the
Brown Deer
Golf Course
, which has been ranked one of the five best public
golf courses in the nation.
