Flourishing small businesses and restaurants. Beautifully maintained parks and green spaces. Small-town feel with big city amenities. Wauwatosa offers its residents a remarkable sense of community, but any Tosan will tell you there’s more to it than that.
Wauwatosa is home. And it’s absolutely beautiful this time of year, as leaves begin to change, nearby apple orchards flourish, and residents soak up every last bit of warmth before winter begins. From fall fairs and festivals to farmers markets and local events, options for fall date ideas in Wauwatosa abound.
Here are a few of our favorites:
Find a new favorite place to see fall colors
Parks in Wauwatosa are stunning this time of year as fall makes its presence known in variations of deep reds and oranges. Asylum Woods features isolated woods of oaks and aspen just north of the Ronald McDonald House on Watertown Plank Road.
Exploring any portion of the 118 miles of the Oak Leaf Trail – on foot or bike – is particularly rewarding this time of year as well.
Try restaurant – or shop – hopping
Wauwatosa is filled to the brim with choices for amazing drinks, food and nightlife. Can’t decide where exactly to hit the town? Try restaurant hopping instead!
Sample tapas and cocktails at Alchemy Joe’s, dine at Cafe Bavaria and savor dessert at Le Reve Patisserie & Cafe.
Or, for those who favor brunches and day dates, dive into a new book at Little Read Book before embarking on a trip to the flavortown otherwise known as Cafe Hollander.
Their brunch menu features a wide variety of delectable options ranging from savory to sweet. Their bloody mary and beer flight options are fabulous. And, if you catch the right day, you can enjoy all of the culinary creativity they have to offer at their outdoor cafe, which overlooks the river.
Plan Around Your Furry Third Wheel
Few things in life instill joy like seeing a pup experience sheer happiness. That is what happens when you take your four-legged family members to Currie Dog Park. Fairly recent expansions of the Milwaukee County facility have made it the place to be for Wauwatosa dog owners.
The park features two spaces, including one for smaller dogs, as well as wooded trails and several acres of space for dogs to run, chase and make new friends, all surrounded by trees brimming with fall foliage.
Spa Together at Wauwatosa Wellness Spa
Treat yourself to rest, rejuvenation and relaxation at Wauwatosa Wellness Spa, 8500 W. North Ave.
