I am a Mom in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin. I spent my early years growing up in
and on Okauchee Lake.

After my parents divorced I spent summers here with my grandparents and
cousins. Everyone lived on Lindy Lane, so visiting family on a daily basis was

Holy Hill, the Basilica of the National Shrine of Mary, Help of Christians in Hubertus, Wisconsin, and other local areas and sites of interest
But time moves on, family grows up and moves on, but here I am back in
Oconomowoc, Wisconsin (for the last 18 years) with my parents a few miles
away, and family within minutes. Am I stuck in a rut or what?

But I'm so proud of my community: rural, yet modern; small, yet large;
cultural, historical, expanding, family-oriented, wonderful place to live. Minutes
from Madison or Milwaukee, and not too far (2 1/2 hours) from the Green Bay
Packers or Door County.

So excuse me if I get carried away. I love Oconomowoc!

This is my guide to family-oriented things to do, lake, parks, museums, fairs,
businesses, entertainment, restaurants, and other activities in Oconomowoc
and surrounding areas. Kid Friendly or not? I'll let you know.
