MILWAUKEE– (Feb. 10, 2015) – VISIT Milwaukee launched a new tourism website, VISITWauwatosa.org, for its strategic partner Wauwatosa. Wauwatosa is an integral part of Milwaukee’s tourism scene, and the new website helps to centralize visitor information for travelers looking to discover the charm and unique attributes of Milwaukee’s neighbor to the west.

The content and backend functionality of VISITWauwatosa.org leverages VISIT Milwaukee’s own website and business listings to provide information regarding all of the fun things to see and do in the Wauwatosa area, including shopping, culinary experiences, sports and recreation, exploring the charming historic Village district and more.

“Leveraging VISIT Milwaukee’s expertise in destination marketing, the new website is a great resource for out-of-town visitors, as it features information about accommodations, including an on-site booking widget, plus custom articles, photos and videos, event and business listings to encourage travel to Tosa,” said Megan Gaus, senior director of marketing and communications at VISIT Milwaukee.

The website also contains year-round activities, including festivals and art fairs, as well as insider tips on restaurants, nightlife and summer hot spots, such as the TOSA Pool and attached beer garden, The Landing.

“I’m excited about this new tool that helps visitors discover all Wauwatosa has to offer,” said Kathy Ehley, Mayor of Wauwatosa. “As a VISIT Milwaukee partner, we worked closely with them to develop a fun, creative site to promote tourism in our City and generate a greater economic impact for us. We look forward to seeing the site evolve.”

For those tourists who wish to learn more about Wauwatosa, the website provides several special interest pieces regarding the history of the city, nearby medical centers and colleges and universities.
