The prodding pangs of wanderlust have only one cure: a new destination on your horizon. Trust in the curative powers of Waukesha, Wisconsin, a destination whose now-dissipated spring waters once soothed the weakened spirits of the wealthy who flocked to its 19th century spas. This suburban city on the Fox River still promises to replenish your sense of inner peace through the natural beauty of its fringing woodlands, waving prairie grasses, and meadows daubed with wildflowers. Book hotels in Waukesha, WI traverse the city's beckoning trails and pristine parks, and let the rejuvenating power of nature work its magic.
Fox River Sanctuary, a beautiful spot within easy reach of most Waukesha hotels, has a densely forested landscape reminiscent of the great northern woods of Wisconsin. The beauty, solitude, and serenity of the wilderness awaits you there, hiding in the unexpected setting of the suburbs. In fall the woodlands are a riot of ruddy hues, while winter's snows ensconce you amid a scene of glittering white punctuated by the unfaltering flow of the frigid river. A spring or summer visit promises a vision of the park at its most glorious. The bluest, brightest skies are magnified in their watery reflection, butterflies flit among the undergrowth, and wildflowers peek their pretty pastel heads up out of the greenery, inviting you to smile right back at them. When you're ready to pick up Waukesha rental cars and continue your travels eastward to Milwaukee, you'll feel as if you've spent your days lavishing in a luxury spa, with your lungs full of the freshest country air and your memories a film reel of woodland panoramas. Staying at one of the best hotels in Milwaukee won't diminish those pleasures one bit, for it's a city with its urban monuments on the edge of Lake Michigan, another of nature's true treasures.
