The Fox River is a major resource for Waterford Wisconsin

Waterford, Wisconsin

Nestled along the scenic Fox River, Waterford is home to more than 5,000 friendly neighbors, highly-ranked schools and dozens of store fronts waiting to serve you. It's a place where new traditions come alive, but small-town comforts thrive. Take in a good old fashioned church festival the first weekend in June at St. Thomas' Country Fair or take a stroll down historic Main Street in the fall and be a part of the annual Art Walk. Waterford offers the best of both worlds.

A half hour from Milwaukee and an hour and a half from Chicago, residents enjoy nearby city amenities but still come home to the crickets at night. Many that find themselves relocating due to work in Milwaukee, Racine or in between, choose Waterford as the place to hang their hat. But why?

Being centrally located between Madison, Waukesha, Milwaukee, Racine, Chicago and Lake Geneva is certainly one good reason. Location, location, location they say. And of course those relocating with children tend to look at the school system with top priority, right? Many choose Waterford for that reason alone. But, the people, the people of Waterford are what make the difference. Old fashion values, work ethic and welcoming arms that will make you stay.

Visit our many events throughout the year including Waterford Balloon Festival and Waterford River Rhythms. We are fortunate to have many volunteers working with numerous organizations that keep Waterford active and alive all year long. C'mon and visit, but be careful, because you might stay for a lifetime.
