New Berlin, Wisconsin is a wonderful suburban city just west of Milwaukee County on the east side of Waukesha County.
Growing up in New Berlin in the 1950's-'60's it was much different than it is now.
Back then, most of the city was farmers fields. Corn fields, apple orchards (several of which are still here), like Patterson Orchards and Weston's Antique Apples dotted the countryside. It's that time of year to take the family to visit the Apple orchards. Can't you just smell the delicious apple pies coming out of the oven?
Much has changed as the city has expanded, but the family-friendly atmosphere is still apparent. This is why so many people are drawn to this area and those that grew up here, continue to come back to raise their families.
There are alot of family-friendly activities available in New Berlin. One place that I have learned such great things about is Kids In Motion . Located in the shopping center on the corner of Greenfield Ave and Sunny Slope Rd, this indoor "Activity Center" provides hours of fun and educational experiences for kids. From arts and crafts, laser tag, open play area, train room, even science and conservation room for kids 5 and up.
There are Birthday Party packages. They have had movie nights, music, and more.
If you haven't visited Kids In Motion yet, you really need to make it a point to check it out. This great family-owned business provides a fun outlet for you to take the kids (or grand-kids).
I'm glad I could share a bit about my home-town with you. Watch for updates as I feature other New Berlin special places.
