ELLISON BAY, WISCONSIN
This pretty little hamlet is reminiscent of old DC. Wide, tree-lined streets without sidewalks, an old-fashioned general store, clapboard buildings, and neighborly folks who ride bikes around town add to its timeless quaintness. Go for a stroll!
Imaginative potters and artisans create items inspired by the county, a friendly diner serves home-style meals, a coffee shop encourages visitors to linger, and an urban-style restaurant uses locally-grown ingredients and serves hand-crafted drinks.
Hotels, resorts, cottages, and B&Bs are within walking distance to the village and shoreline.
