Port Washington, Wisconsin: Quaint Coastal Town North of Milwaukee

A port town along Lake Michigan, Port Washington has thrived since the mid-1800s. Its historic district, where The Port Hotel is located, is lined with historically significant buildings, many of which pre-date the Civil War. Just a short stroll away is the 1860 Light Station, which helped guide ships safely to Port Washington's harbor in the 19th century. Today, it acts as more of a museum to showcases the life of a lighthouse-keeper.

Greenview Tree Farm lies just a short 20 minute drive away in Random Lake, Wisconsin. Guests can choose a tree from the rows of different varieties, such as Spruce, Douglas Fir, or Pine. With over 35,000 trees and a shop full of wreaths, garlands, and ornaments, guests can prepare for the holidays at this all-in-one tree farm.

In neighboring Cedarburg, stop into the historic Rivoli Theater to catch the latest flick. The art-deco-style theater—replete with velour-covered chairs, a neon marquee, and sidewalk ticket booth—has served the community since it opened its doors in 1936.

Just 30 miles to the south, Milwaukee also offers plenty to do. Set along the downtown lakefront, the Milwaukee Art Museum is beloved for its futuristic, sailboat-like architecture by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava. Inside, you can browse 30,000 works of art, ranging from 15th-century antiques to Georgia O'Keeffe paintings. Just south of the museum, the Milwaukee RiverWalk runs alongside the river for 3 miles, taking you through the Historic Third Ward, where antique shops and art galleries fill century-old warehouses. Drop by the Milwaukee Public Market here to sample local cheeses, baked goods, and other culinary delights.
