Tosa Heritage: Known as the “city of homes,” Wauwatosa features many 19th and 20th century Victorian-style buildings due to the explosive growth it experienced in the mid-19th century as a result of transportation links to Milwaukee. What began with two mills along the river in 1835 would eventually grow into the vibrant, multifaceted city we know as Wauwatosa today.

Follow the Fireflies: We have this thing with fireflies — not only are they part of our namesake, but they also embody the kind of magic that happens in Wauwatosa every day. From outdoor adventures to easygoing dining destinations, every Tosa experience is intended to spark stories to share and memories to cherish. Plus, nothing is better than when Tosa’s fireflies come out at dusk and the bonfire starts crackling.

The Great Outdoors: Tosa’s where we have fun and do our own thing. Between Menomonee River path and Hoyt Park, there are endless opportunities for recreation, and Wauwatosa’s bike share Bublr Bikes will get you there.

Murals Galore: Wauwatosa’s vibrant art scene takes center stage in the North Avenue Mural Arts District, where a series of art installations featuring local, regional, and international muralists stretches from Wauwatosa to Lake Michigan.

Milwaukee’s Backyard: We’re pretty proud to be neighbors with Milwaukee — it means we’re conveniently less than a fifteen-minute drive from the Milwaukee County Zoo and Milwaukee Art Museum, and less than a ten-minute drive from Miller Park.

Quality Brews: Wauwatosa is proudly home to a variety of breweries and beer gardens — each with its own personality and distinctive offering. From live music to tasting rooms, we have plenty to brag about.
