Town and country in Whitewater

Flat-topped blocks of Tex-Mex grill houses and hearty Wisconsin cafes encapsulate Whitewater's workaday charm. A town that charms visitors with its pretty urban lakesides and homey Midwestern breweries, it's actually got another trump card up its sleeve: the Kettle Moraine State Forest. That sits just on the south-eastern fringes, and comes dotted with Whitewater vacation rentals of its own. It's a picture of soft American backcountry, with rustling foliage and plenty of lakes for boating and fishing, not to mention some fascinating geological constructions dating from the Ice Age.

Natural beauty in Whitewater

Stick around the pleasant blocks that feather off Main Street to sample the lovely local vibes of little Whitewater town. It's peppered with independent microbreweries that tout evening tasting sessions of their ales and stouts, and it's got pretty lakeside picnic spots, massage studios, and a smattering of boutique shops. Alternatively, get out and about in WI with a hiking trip to the state parks that dot the region, a kayaking session on the creeks, or a birding excursion with trained outfitters.

Whitewater's got the Kettle Moraine

The southern extension of the Kettle Moraine State Park is what draws many visitors to Whitewater vacation rentals on the south side of town. They come with the walking boots and the kayaking gear in tow, and head out to hit short sections of the 1,200-mile-long Ice Age National Scenic Trail. On rainy days, the on-site Natural History Museum is a must. That's got interactive exhibits and multimedia movies that help to make sense of the curious geology of this part of Wisconsin.

Get warm in Whitewater

The various state parks around Whitewater might come ringed with the odd Nordic ski route or two, and the winter weather between December and March certainly leaves plenty of snow on the ground for hitting the cross-country trails, but it's still the summer that draws most visitors. Look to book your Whitewater vacation rentals in the months between May and October. Those will allow you the top weather for hiking and kayaking, while later on you might even catch a glimpse of the pretty fall foliage colors.

Whitewater is on the Ice Age Trail

Whitewater's geography can be explained by its place on the side of the Ice Age National Scenic Trail. That long walking route passes through the Kettle Moraine State Forest, which sits just to the south of town. It's a landscape that was forged by the movement of glaciers and ice sheets across America hundreds of thousands of years ago. These days, the setting is a little more bucolic than you might think. The hills are covered with beech and oak trees, the lakes are peppered with bluegills and pikes, and there are pretty nature trails to wander.
