A successful meeting is a well-rounded meeting that balances productivity with creativity, hard work with hard play. Here in Waukesha Pewaukee, your group can delight to a variety of unique, historic, fun-filled outings. Ask our Sales Team how you can build one or more of our “Exclusively Us” excursions into your itinerary.
East Troy Electric Railroad*
(Approximately 2 Hours)
Ride Wisconsin’s last original electric railroad line with this 10-mile round trip through scenic Kettle Moraine State Forest. You’ll stop at the Elegant Farmer Station for simply the best-tasting farm experience with their nationally rated Apple Pie Baked in a Paper Bag©!
Old World Wisconsin*
The pioneering spirit of early Wisconsin (and America) awaits you and your group, so grab your work clothes and get ready for a little history and a lot of fun! Chat with a blacksmith, observe hard-working historic bred animals, view artisan handicrafts and learn about traditional cooking methods — all this and more at the country’s largest living history museum on 19th century rural life.
(Approximately 2 Hours)
Experience the tour of a lifetime at this estate created by Broadway legends, Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne, now preserved and acclaimed by the New York Times as reflective of its “original highly ornate glory.” A barrier-free tour that’s a must-see in Waukesha County.
Waukesha County Museum
(Approximately 2 Hours)
A nationally notorious, scandalous love affair gone wrong was tried in Waukesha’s own 1893 courtroom, now a part of the Waukesha County Museum. Step into the courtroom for an escorted tour, and see the adulteress turned murderer and the charming local doctor who started it all!
Small Town Sampling**
Discover Historic Downtown Waukesha with this formal tearoom experience — scones and all! Choose from a variety of global teas and delight in fresh scones, tea sandwiches, savories and tea desserts. See a table setting demonstration followed by shopping at unique boutiques, art galleries and antiques. Or, as a unique alternative, let the experts come to you and your event, at your location. Learn wine pairings with chocolate or cheese; enlist a chef for an appetizer cooking demonstration; or learn the secrets of creating a floral centerpiece matched with a formal table setting.
This vibrant artistic culture would welcome the opportunity to share, educate and offer a hands-on experience to complement any group activity.
** Size limitations may apply
What’s your group in the mood for tonight? Maybe libations after the event, followed by some mouthwatering cuisine with a great view of sunset over Pewaukee Lake, topped off with some delightful boutique shopping or even live music? Well then, Waukesha Pewaukee would like to tell you: okay, okay and okay (and ask, what are you doing tomorrow night?)!
