The Best Things to do in Cedarburg

Cedarburg hosts various exciting annual events throughout the year, including the upcoming Strawberry Festival in June and an endearing Christmas Season that is impossible not to love. But these events are just the start of the great things to do in Cedarburg! 

Start your morning with our signature breakfast, then set out for an exciting adventure in Cedarburg that carries you through to dinner. Take your time wandering the picturesque streets, exploring local boutiques, and learning more about this town’s heritage. And, of course, stop for a wine tasting and appreciate the view. This town’s charm is undeniable. We can’t wait to share all the best things to do in Cedarburg with you this year. We’ve listed a few of our favorites below. 

  1. As you start your day in Cedarburg, we encourage you to get acquainted with the town by exploring the historic district. Here, you’ll find a diverse collection of boutiques and great opportunities for shopping. 
  2. When you want to take a break from shopping, enjoy some of the town’s scenery at Cedarburg’s Covered Bridge Park – one of the best things to do in town. 
  3. Art lovers should visit the Cedarburg Art Museum or the Wisconsin Museum of Quilts & Fiber Arts. 
  4. Though you started your day in the historic district, that’s not the only great place for shopping in town. One of the most popular things to do in Cedarburg is to visit the Cedar Creek Settlement. We recommend you save this shopping for after lunch, though, as this is also where you’ll find a fantastic opportunity for wine tasting. This is also where you’ll see a restored 1864 woolen mill, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
  5. Cedar Creek Winery is one of Cedarburg’s top things to do and one of the country’s most renowned small regional wineries.
  6. If beer is more your “thing,” don’t worry! Cedarburg also hosts a couple of fantastic breweries. We recommend a flight at Fermentorium Brewery & Tasting Room, but another great choice is Rebellion Brewing.
  7. You probably won’t be surprised to learn that this quaint town also has a distillery! Visit Handen Distillery, enjoy a craft cocktail, or pick up a bottle of spirits to go.
  8. When you need a break from drinking, take a walk (or rent a bike locally) on the Ozaukee Interurban Trail and enjoy some more of the area’s beautiful scenery. The 30-mile trail connects the towns of Belgium, Cedarburg, Grafton, Mequon, Port Washington, and Thiensville.
