Located west of Milwaukee, the community of Pewaukee preserves a small-town feel while maintaining its presence as a business-luring area. On a day off during warm weather, Pewaukee Lake -- which is the location of the only free public beach in Waukesha County -- is a spot for relaxation and a variety of water sports. During the colder months, go shopping at local shops and dine-in at restaurants ranging from casual to fine dining.
