Good for small-town charm

2hrs 20mins by car

Located just 20 miles north of Milwaukee, Cedarburg is an ideal place to wind down and take things slow. The charming small town is brimming with old-world architecture, friendly Midwesterners and culture galore. If you can, plan your trip around one of the town’s seasonal events, with options including CedarBrew Fest, Strawberry Festival and A Cedarburg Christmas—all of which offer ample opportunities to meet local vendors and sample their wares. While you’re not rubbing elbows with the close-knit community at a street fest, make time to walk around the Cedarburg Art Museum (W63 N675 Washington Ave,, which hosts exhibitions from Wisconsin artists inside a former home that was designed in 1898. If wine bars are more your scene, enjoy a tour and a glass of vino at Cedar Creek Winery (N70 W6340 Bridge Rd,, where you can sip syrah, pinot grigio, riesling and more. On your way out of town, make one last stop at Amy’s Candy Kitchen (W62N579 Washington Ave, to grab a hand-crafted caramel apple for the road.—MO
