The city is located mostly within the Town of Weyauwega, though it is politically independent. Small portions extend north into the adjacent Town of Royalton. The city is commonly referred to simply as "Wega" by many local residents while the name "Weyauwega" (pronounced /waɪ.əwiːɡə/ wy-ə-wee-gə) means "Here we rest" because the town's origin was a stopping/resting point between 2 rivers when indians had to portage their canoes-and a fur trader built a small building, and later the town grew from there.
Weyauwega is located on Wisconsin Highway 110. U.S. Route 10 and Wisconsin Highway 49 are located just south and west of the city. The Yellowstone Trail ran through the city, and its former route is signed through the downtown and north portions of the city.
