Shopping in Cedarburg

A historic village is a favorite destination during the holidays.

Half an hour north of Milwaukee, Cedarburg is the kind of shopping destination every big city likes to have nearby.

The quiet old Yankee mill town on Cedar Creek features a historic district full of restored storefronts, a winery, an artists guild, a cultural center, festivals and lots of shops.

What to do: Shop for gifts or antiques along Washington Avenue or at Cedar Creek Settlement, a restored 1864 stone woolen mill. Sample wine at Cedar Creek Winery

Events to catch: Dec. 20, Luminaries and trolley rides downtown and Festive Friday Eve at Cedar Creek Settlement. Dec. 20-21, A Dickens of a Christmas at Kuhefuss House Museum.
