    Chumley's - Many memories made here, for most New Berlinites of drinking age. It's a good place to watch a football game on a Saturday afternoon. In the summer, after softball games it gets really crowded. The day before thanksgiving is a madhouse here.

    They serve food here, too. Friday Fish Fry and Chili are a couple of things I've heard about--but never had.

    Dress Code: very casual, you're better off not wearing anything too nice.

    Give the local fire station a call. It is a volunteer force, but if they have free time they are willing to show the kids around.

    For a weekend afternoon diversion, you could head up to Malone Park (On national Ave near Armeli's--check restuarants) to see if you can get a pick up game going. many times there are people floating around the courts, so it is probably one of the better places to get something going.

    I suppose if you are desperately craving local sports you could go to a High School game. New Berlin West and New Berlin Eisenhower are the local High Schools. Great schools, by the way, safe, good teachers, good life preparation.

    Okay, the highest point in Waukesha County is not very high (something like 1,200 feet). This is a very nice, easy 2.5 mile round trip hike to Lapham Peak. It is very pretty with a rolling landscape marked by kettles (because of glaciers during the retreat of the ice age) and lots of oak trees.

    I went with my brother (in photo at the top of the lookout tower) and parents one August afternoon I was back in town. In winter people come here for X country skiing.

    Here is some cool history: Increase Lapham, regarded as the father of the National Weather Bureau, established a signal station on top of the hill to help relay meteorologic information.

    Details: All vehicles must have a state park admission sticker. These stickers are available at the contact booth near the park entrance.

    It is open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.spring, summer, and fall and from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. in the winter.

    Equipment: sport shoes
