Waunakee

Welcome to Waunakee

Madison’s northernmost suburb, Waunakee, has the flair of being “the only Waunakee in the World.” It’s a fast-growing, friendly community that expands around and out from downtown and its neighborhoods, including one built around an airstrip. A sweet Main Street features locally owned shops, some historic buildings and homes, a brew pub, a wine bar, and more. New and upscale developments with expansive homes are taking shape outside of town.
 
A drive through the country, past fields, and farms, is the bucolic way to Waunakee, which sits north of Lake Mendota by a few miles. Plus, drive in any direction and you’ll run into the outdoors, whether it’s hiking in the woods at nearby state and county parks, climbing amid beautiful glacial terrain, or water sports on rivers and lakes.
