Hit your Milwaukee Brewers game plans out of the park when you book a stay in Wauwatosa. 

Located just a quick drive away from American Family Field, Tosa is the perfect place to complete your game day getaway. Add numerous outdoor activities, local eats, and great shops to your agenda to create the ultimate trip.

Game Day Perks 

Eliminate the worry of game day transportation and parking when you head to Balistreri’s or Jackson’s Blue Ribbon Pub before the first pitch. 

Balistreri’s Italian-American Ristorante. Located in Tosa’s 68th & Wells District, Balistreri’s Italian-American Ristorante is a local pizza shop that has been serving up the perfect pie since 1968. Not only do they pride themselves on being home to Milwaukee’s best thin crust pizza, but they also offer Brewers’ game day transportation. Grab a slice, hop on the shuttle, and be on your way.

Jackson’s Blue Ribbon Pub. Another Wauwatosa pre-game stop to try is Jackson’s Blue Ribbon Pub, which also offers shuttle service to American Family Field. Enjoy a Pabst Blue Ribbon brew and check out their game day food and drink specials.


Where to Stay

Located just a short commute from American Family Field and countless Tosa gems, the Residence Inn Milwaukee West is a perfect place to book your stay. 

You also can’t go wrong with the Renaissance Hotel Milwaukee West, Radisson Hotel Milwaukee West, or Homewood Suites by Hilton Wauwatosa Milwaukee

Plus, you can check out limited-time Tosa-area hotel packages for you to take advantage of during your next visit.


What to Do 

When you’re not watching the Brewers (hopefully, win!), Wauwatosa has plenty of activities for you to enjoy during your stay to help create the ultimate getaway. 

Food + Drink. Don’t miss any of Wauwatosa’s bars, breweries, and restaurants that offer the perfect crisp local beer throughout our city, including, Big Head Brewing Co., Camp Bar, Draft and Vessel, and The Fermentorium.  

Animals + Murals. If you bring the kids, the Milwaukee County Zoo is a great family outing that is a must-visit during your stay. See if you can spot all 800 animals across their 23 acres of land. Plus, take a walk through East Tosa and discover numerous larger-than-life murals that are perfect for a Tosa photo-op.

Shop Small.  Lastly, shopping up and down Harwood Ave is a can’t-miss that helps support small, local businesses, including Heinsight Leather, Mooi, Flannel Fox, and Cream City Soap Company.
