Waukesha is a city in Waukesha County, Wisconsin. In 2006, according to Waukesha ranks as the 36th "best place to live in the United States." As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 64,825. It is the county seat of Waukesha County. The city is located adjacent to the Town of Waukesha.

The name of the city means "fox" or "foxes," either from the Ojibwe word Waagoshag or the Potawatomi word Wauk-tsha.

Waukesha was known for its extremely clean and good-tasting spring water and was called a spa town. This earned the city the nicknames "Spring City" and "Saratoga of the West". However, emissions have since ruined these springs, and a number have gone dry.
