Embark on New Adventures

There’s a world of possibilities awaiting you right outside your door—and well beyond it. Mequon, Wisconsin, is a quiet suburb of Milwaukee, a short drive away from all the entertainment and dining options of the big city. This is your ideal starting point for new adventures, where dull days are a thing of the past.

Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you.

Senior Community Events

Engaging Entertainment Closer to Home

Fill your calendar to the brim! The robust event schedule at Newcastle Place, along with the events hosted by the wider local community, promise endless ways to fill your days. Enjoy a sculpture class. Attend a live concert or performance. Every season brings a new, exciting experience—from summer cookouts and ice cream socials to holiday festivities, and more.

We enjoy taking advantage of the trips that are available to us: a lot of sightseeing kind of activities. We've been to places we wouldn't have probably gone to on our own! We took a great trip down to Lambeau Field ... It was an exciting trip.
