Oconomowoc, Wisconsin: Small Town with Abundant Lakes and International Dining
Hundreds of years ago, Native Americans from the Potowatomi and Winnebago tribes were attracted to Oconomowoc for its sprawling woodlands and abundant lakes. You can learn all about the area’s history at the Oconomowoc Area Historical Society and Museum, which houses artifacts including early farming tools.
A lot has changed since the town’s incorporation in 1865, but its ties to nature remain strong. Take a boat out on Oconomowoc Lake or Lac La Belle, then float on a scenic tour of the large houses lining the coast. The 10-acre park abutting Fowler Lake makes an ideal venue for family fun—it has lighted tennis courts and shoreline fishing.
Away from the water, Oconomowoc boasts vibrant cultural and dining scenes, from Italian at Golosi Gelato Cafe to authentic curries at Mantra Indian Bistro. After dinner, catch a play or concert at the Oconomowoc Arts Center.
