August 4 Drive to Cedarburg – UPDATED Information

After the August breakfast, we will lead a half-day drive to Cedarburg, Wisconsin.  Cedarburg is just north of Milwaukee and close to Interstate 43 but we will eschew the interstate and drive some of those fun Wisconsin roads so loved by Miata drivers.  (Hmm, I wonder if County ZZ stands for Zoom-Zoom?)  We will arrive in Cedarburg in the early afternoon; participants will then have the rest of the day to enjoy Cedarburg on your own or in small groups of your WCMC friends.

So what’s in Cedarburg?  A couple of small museums, several historic structures, at least two wineries, a bevy of specialty shops, lots of restaurants and coffee shops, and at least one place to get some good Wisconsin ice cream.  Yum!

There is an interesting small History Museum in the Visitor Center located in the heart of town, and just outside town the Wisconsin Museum of Quilts and Fiber Arts sits on a repurposed 1850s farmstead.  The Fiber Arts museum’s featured exhibit will be a selection of traditional and contemporary quilts from the acclaimed 2015 international quilt competition in Japan - but while fabric arts aficionados go there for the exhibits, others go to admire the 100-plus year old stone and timber barn that houses the museum.   

At the north end of town Cedar Creek Settlement, housed in the former Wittenberg Woolen Mill (which operated for over 100 years and closed in 1969), is home to the Cedar Creek Winery, three or four restaurants and several specialty shops, including antique shops and galleries.  Across the street a store sells Amish-made outdoor furniture which looks like wood but is handcrafted from recycled plastic.  (We kid you not.)  And there are numerous other interesting shops in town.

Cedarburg is very tourist-friendly.  Most of the shops and restaurants are up and down the main drag or not far from it and there are several free public parking lots.  After a half day of driving you may want to park the Miata and stretch your legs.  

Here are the details:

7:30 am – Breakfast buffet at Emily’s Pancake House, 1910 E. Grand Avenue (IL Route 132) in Lindenhurst.

9:00 am – Departure.  The drive will include some fun roads and two brief rest stops.  PLEASE NOTE THE DRIVE WILL BE LIMITED TO 15 CARS.

1:00-1:30 pm – Estimated arrival in Cedarburg.  You will have the rest of the afternoon (and evening, if you like) to enjoy Cedarburg.  Travel home is on your own (about 2 to 2 ½ hours if you use the expressways).

If you plan to join us, here’s what you need to do:

  • RSVP by no later than July 31st via email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  (If you plan to come to breakfast but not on the drive, please let us know – the restaurant would like a count for the buffet.)
  • On August 4, those who plan to do the drive should park in Emily’s “back” parking lot.  Just enter the main parking lot and drive through it to the smaller lot at the rear of the property.
