In this episode of Discover Wisconsin, host Mariah Haberman heads to the lively and historic city of West Bend, located just 30 minutes north of Milwaukee on a westward bend of the Milwaukee River. After perusing through the Saturday morning farmers market, Mariah checks out some sweet staples of downtown West Bend, including the Candyman on Main, and Laughing Mountain Popcorn. We also indulge our taste buds at two incredible restaurants, Tochi Ramen and The Norbert. One of things that makes West Bend extra special, is that it’s home to the Museum of Wisconsin Art (MOMA). This cosmopolitan museum in the heart of a small town in Wisconsin is an amazing platform for the arts in our state. After taking in the exhibits at MOMA, Mariah bikes along the beautiful Eisenbahn Trail and makes a stop at Regner Park to visit the beautiful and tranquil Labyrinth Garden. West Bend also plays host to some fun events like their four-day Germanfest celebration, Art & Chalk Fest, the weekly summer concert series, Music on Main, the Homegrown Music Festival, and Regner Fest. From local music festivals to being a cultural hub for Wisconsin artists and chefs, there is so much creativity energizing this town! Come experience it all – here in West Bend.
