Go on a West Bend Summer Getaway

Your easy-on-gasoline summer escape

Don’t spend your leisure time driving this summer. Just take the short drive to beautiful West Bend for trails, geocaching, scenic walks and more. West Bend is less than an hour from Milwaukee – and once you get to West Bend, every attraction is within walking distance. You’ll spend more time enjoying yourself and less time driving. So, what are you waiting for?
