      The best part of my vacation to Waukesha, WI was that I found so many things for my entire family to do. This is usually a trying task for a mother of two pre-teens. I always loved visiting little known yet interesting places. I wanted to visit a new place that offered fun and entertainment but showed me a bit about the history of the place I was to visit. After a bit of research I found that Waukesha, WI seemed to be a great place to visit.

      In Waukesha, we stayed at the Greek Revival Stage Coach Inn and found that it was a beautiful and relaxing home like Inn. I loved the atmosphere and so did my children. There are picturesque rivers and streams that line the county. We spent a lot of time sitting by the streams and talking. I found it was a wonderful way to spend quality time with my daughters.

      There are so many arts events in Waukesha that you can take part in that you will never be bored. I took my daughters to the symphony orchestra and visited the civic theatre that offered a wonderful production that all of us enjoyed. We ate pioneer fare and enjoyed just spending time together.
