Gui­tar god Les Paul grew up here and a road is named af­ter him (Les Paul Park­way). To­day’s res­i­dents of this county-seat city (pop. 70,718) get ac­cess to live mu­sic in a vi­brant down­town with not only bars, but also a com­mu­nity the­ater, an­tiques shops, and side­walks and benches lin­ing the banks of the Fox River. Car­roll Uni­ver­sity hosts cul­tural events, too. It’s also got the county’s most eth­ni­cally di­verse restau­rant scene – a re­flec­tion of the city’s sub­stan­tial Latino pop­u­la­tion. “Now that the wa­ter is­sues seem to be set­tled in Wauke­sha,” says Pat Gin­ter of RE/Max Realty 100’s Brook­field of­fice, re­fer­ring to the wa­ter rights to Lake Michi­gan that were granted last year, “I’ve no­ticed a greater in­ter­est in the area.” Lux­ury con­dos range from a loft-style, ex­posed-brick unit a few blocks from down­town list­ing for $275,000, to a town­house-style condo far­ther out for around $300,000, or a three-bed­room home start­ing at $250,000. All are ideal gate­ways to the western re­gion.
