Lyndon B. Johnson once said, "Peace is a journey of a thousand miles and it must be taken one step at a time." He may not have been speaking of inner peace, precisely, but the statement still applies. It takes great effort and patience to overcome our human foibles and embrace a mindset of wisdom and contentment. Sometimes the best way to effect this journey of the spirit is by taking a journey of the body. With each step or stroke of the paddle, you're that much closer to the answers your soul craves. Find them by booking one of our hotels in Grafton, WI and strolling along Grafton, Wisconsin's Ozaukee Interurban Trail or floating along the tranquil Milwaukee River. Relish every moment, for these are the journeys that have the power to orient your future.
Rent one of our Grafton rental cars to help you access more of the region's scenic beauty. After you stow your bags in one of the hotels near Grafton, pilot yourself to the banks of Milwaukee River, an ideal place for a journey by canoe. Ease your vessel into the current and propel yourself forward with your paddle, or simply allow the water to carry you gently along. Float past tree-lined embankments and under old, rusted railway bridges, waving to fellow boaters and friendly shore dwellers. If you packed a snack, there are plenty of pretty banks where you can beach your canoe while you enjoy a small picnic in the Midwestern sunshine. If you aren't quite ready to return to one of our Grafton hotels for the day, make your way to the Ozaukee Interurban Trail, which crosses the entirety of Ozaukee County. Biking, roller-blading, or simply strolling are all favorite activities here, but the trail is by no means seasonally exclusive. In the winter, exchange your skates for a pair of cross-country skis and glide across the county with only the whisper of your skis on the snow to punctuate the blissful silence.
If your thirst for new scenery and adventure calls you beyond the borders of Grafton, follow it! With Travelocity's help, logistics won't prevent you from taste-testing ales in Brew City. Check into one of our cheap hotels in Milwaukee and wander as long as you like.
