Washington County

Washington County is a perfect fit for the family, or the average person, accomplishing the perfect mix of that “small town” feeling that many yearn for, while accommodating the needs of those who work in, or feel comfortable with the city. Year round the hills, valleys and lakes beckon to bikers, hikers, watersports enthusiasts and Alpine and Nordic skiers. Attractions include local art, auto and history museums, state, county and local parks and campgrounds, a speedway, two natural ski hills and the National Shrine of Holy Hill. Trails that run through the woodlands, prairies and marshy areas of the park provide an opportunity to experience contrasting plant communities. Wildflowers and prairie grasses create colorful seasonal displays.

The Washington County Fair offers the best in culture, educational, economic and social opportunities to all! The Fair is rich in tradition and history with a flare for the new and innovative. Each year the Fair grows in attendance, entertainment, exhibits and exhibitors. We encourage you to take in all that the Fair has to offer. Enjoy the rides and games, sample yummy food throughout the grounds, listen to some of the top musicians, check out the animal and project exhibits and of course, socialize with family and friends. The Washington County Fair, 133 acres of FUN!!

Park your wheels in Dheinsville and travel back in time. German immigrants of the Hunsruck Mountain region founded this hamlet. Today all 22 of the original structures remain. The Germantown Historical Society now occupies the Christ Church Museum, the shoemaker’s house and the fire hall & barn. Stroll through a one-block area full of ethnic and historic flavor. Our visit Old Court Square Museum, a masterpiece of late 19th century architecture. The newly renovated museum displays exhibits on local business & industry, early settlers and more. An exciting interactive exhibit gallery.

While getting away and feeling the serenity of the outdoors is great for some of us, it is not for everyone. For those that love or need that fast paced big city living, Washington County accommodates. Being located in the greater metropolitan area of Milwaukee, Washington County and all its towns and cities are a perfect place for those who don’t want to get too far away from the City. For whatever the needs or wants may be, Washington County supplies more than enough for any lifestyle, or getaway that you may be seeking.
