Delafield, WI (PRWEB) November 15, 2012
Upscale, charming… The city of Delafield is magical in winter. This picturesque city in beautiful Lake Country comes alive with family-friendly events and indoor merriment in its many boutiques, shops, and restaurants. Peaceful but invigorating cross-country ski, snowshoe and snowmobile trails, as well as outdoor recreation on the lakes, draw in the outdoorsmen and women!
But it’s also an excellent place to wind down from the busyness of the season and be treated to the calm pampering of one of Delafield’s luxurious spas. Just 30 minutes west of Milwaukee, Delafield is a welcome escape from overbooked calendars and to-do lists. It’s an excellent destination to rediscover how much fun winter can actually be.
Whether visitors enjoy time spent in the crisp outdoors or revel in all that Delafield has to offer in the decidedly warmer spas, restaurants, boutiques, and stores, visitors will find much to do and see.
Bask in the distinctive charm of Delafield’s Colonial Williamsburg-styled downtown, lined with trendy stores that offer unique gift items, apparel, home décor and gourmet candy. Along it’s streets, visitors can liven up taste buds with a sample of decadent chocolates, artisan breads, and enjoy tastes at the area’s only premium olive oil and balsamic vinegar store. Nestled in the middle of downtown is The Delafield Hotel, a luxury hotel that was recently named the #4 top hotel in Wisconsin by U.S. News and World Report.
A short drive along beautiful Nagawicka Lake leads to the city’s generous shopping districts lined with popular chains, retailers, and outstanding restaurants – all within walking distance of comfortable, well known hotels. There, take in a traditional Wisconsin Friday Fish Fry or indulge in a flavored latte, or a hearty microbrew from one of the two brewpubs in the city.
