A Wisconsin Walking Tour of Downtown Waukesha

February 29, 2024

Are you looking for a downtown with decades of history, beautiful art, and an even better community atmosphere? Look no further, Waukesha has all of that and more! Since 1838, the city has continued to grow and flourish. Whether it’s the historical figures who originated from Waukesha or the community members who continue to expand the city, Waukesha has something for everyone.

Les Paul is a well-known guitar legend and native of Waukesha. Not only was Les Paul a great artist himself, but he also invented the solid-body guitar. In addition to changing the music world, Les Paul is also the only person in the world to be inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and The National Inventors Hall of Fame. His story doesn’t end there, to learn more about Les Paul and his accomplishments, make a pit stop by the Waukesha county museum! https://www.waukeshacountymuseum.org/

Not only is the historical past of Waukesha inspiring, but the current community members are creating history of their own. The Walldogs, a group of talented artists, worked alongside community members to create beautiful murals in the downtown area to represent the city. If you’re not spending your time admiring the beautiful artwork, head downtown on Friday night to join the locals for live music. You won’t want to miss Wauskeha’s beautiful art, recognizable history, and most importantly- the wonderful community members who make Waukesha home.
