Welcome to Cedarburg
Named one of the “Prettiest Small Towns in America” by Fortune Magazine in 2011, the historic and quaint city of Cedarburg is known for its preservation of its rich past.
The charming and pedestrian-friendly downtown sector consists of buildings made from the original limestone brought over in the early 1800s which now house boutiques, restaurants, coffee shops, art galleries, pubs, and inns.
With 34 parks covering over 140 acres, there are plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities such as hiking, jogging, and biking. In addition, residents can enjoy water-based recreations like canoeing and fishing on the beautiful, winding Cedar Creek which flows through the city and is home to one of the last remaining covered bridges in Wisconsin.
