If you've ever visited Cedarburg, Wisconsin before, I'm sure you're well aware of the historic charm it provides, but have you ever seen it at Christmas? It's straight out of a Hallmark movie!

One of Wisconsin's Prettiest Christmas Towns

Being from Illinois, when I think about charming Christmas towns the first thing that comes to mind is Galena. I absolutely LOVE visiting Galena any time of the year, but especially at Christmas when all the downtown shops and businesses are all dressed up in their holiday finest. While visiting Galena will always be one of our Christmas traditions, I recently discovered that we need to add Cedarburg, Wisconsin to our must-visit list too.

Cedarburg, Wisconsin is located about 20 miles North of Milwaukee, and while its proximity to the city has helped it grow, it has done so without losing any of its historic, small-town feels.

Only In Your State says Cedarburg began as a mill town in the 1840s and that many of the town's original buildings still stand and are beautifully preserved...


Am I the only one who feels all warm and fuzzy inside just looking at the pics of those beautiful buildings? I can't wait to see them in person!
