Cost: $95

Today we travel to charming Cedarburg, in rural Ozaukee County, WI.

Here a step-on guide joins us for a narrated tour of this historic Wisconsin town. See downtown Cedarburg, listed as a Historic District on the National Register of Historic Places with its limestone and cream brick buildings from the 1800's. See an authentic covered bridge and the lime kilns. In 1864, Cedarburg, was the perfect place to channel the rushing waters of Cedar Creek to build a stone mill to produce woolen goods for the Union Army in the Civil War. The mill operated for over 100 years until 1969. Today, Cedar Creek Settlement occupies the site with over 30 shops including antique stores, gift shops, artists’ studios, a forge, and a potter’s studio.

After our driving tour, we'll stroll this historic area and its charming shops. For lunch enjoy a relaxing, delicious lunch at the settlement’s Crème & Crepe Café. Enjoy your unique crepe entrée and crepe dessert while you soak in the peaceful atmosphere overlooking Cedar Creek. After lunch, enjoy a tour of the award-winning Cedar Creek Winery and taste their splendid wines. On the way home, stop and shop at the landmark Mars Cheese Castle for some tasty Wisconsin cheese and sausage!
