Wauwatosa's original inhabitants were the Potawatomi people. European settlers didn't arrive until 1835. A year later a vital road was built to connect the new settlement to Milwaukee. This road was later extended to Madison.

The area's first Euro-American settler, Charles Hart, built a mill in the area in 1845. The mill was so crucial to the new settlement, locals decided to christen the area Hart's Mill. However, its name was later changed to honor the city's original inhabitants. Wauwatosa is the Potawatomi word for firefly.

Today "Tosa," as the locals call it, is a leading area for industry, with Briggs & Stratton, GE Healthcare, and Quest CE all headquartered in the city. Wauwatosa is also home to first-class tourist facilities, including unique boutique stores, dynamic restaurants, and hotels. Whether you're traveling for business or leisure, you'll soon make yourself at home in this charming Wisconsin city.

When to Visit Wauwatosa, WI

Early fall is the best time to visit Wauwatosa. Summer's warm weather still lingers in the air, with average temperatures hovering in the high 60s. However, summer tourists have already returned home, so you'll get hotels for roughly 35 percent less than you would during the busy season.

Wauwatosa is beautiful during summer, though, with average temperatures in the mid-70s. If your heart is set on a summer getaway, try to avoid Labor Day weekend and Summerfest, a popular Milwaukee festival held in late June and early July. You'll pay top dollar during these celebrations. The crowds are also a real turnoff for some.

For the most affordable rates, wait until just after the festive season. The snow keeps most travelers away, or at least closer to the ski fields of Portage and Wisconsin Dells, so you'll virtually have the city to yourself. Just remember those winter woollies!

Exciting Restaurants in Wauwatosa, WI

Wauwatosa is quickly earning a reputation as one of America's most underrated food destinations. The following local restaurants have helped put Tosa on the map for foodies everywhere.

Firefly Tosa puts a modern spin on classic cuisine with dishes like garlic-soy-butter-glazed flank steak and pork chops crusted with jalapeno and Japanese panko breadcrumbs. Its cocktails are also renowned throughout the city. Sit by the fire during cold weather or soak up the sunshine on the patio when it's warm out.

Ordinarily, chefs won't reveal their secrets, but Michael Feker bucks the trend by encouraging foodies to take classes at his School of Culinary Magic, located inside his Il Mito Trattoria & Enoteca. If you just want someone else to do the hard work, this esteemed Italian restaurant also delivers. The 3 for 30 menu, which lets you design your own three-course meal from Sunday to Thursday, is a great value.

Café Bavaria offers all your German favorites like generous wursts and crispy schnitzels. But it's the more unusual meals that help set this European eatery apart. The Bavarian vegetarian pho is perfect for Meat-free Mondays, while the Wilhelm burger, topped with a lavish serving of shaved ham and butterkase, should satisfy your carnivorous cravings.

Irie Zulu serves dishes with bold African and Jamaican flavors. Traditional meals like tiebou yapp, a Senegalese grilled chicken and tomato rice dish, and watchee, a beef dish from Ghana, will challenge your taste buds in the best possible way. The exotic fare is prepared with local and organic produce whenever possible, and the restaurant attempts to minimize its carbon footprint. Sustainable dining never tasted so good. Irie Zulu also sells spices and sauces, so you can recreate the meals once you return home.
