The Best Places for Christmas in Wisconsin

Well, the snow may not be falling, but some holiday cheer has come to the Chippewa Valley. Only In Your State has come out with a list of the Top 10 Christmas Towns in Wisconsin, and you'll notice a familiar name on the list. 

Some place called "Cedarburg" (sounds made up) took first. Milwaukee and Madison take second and third place for their notably large displays and festivities befitting of a big city experience. That doesn't mean that the Chippewa Valley isn't going to make a show though. 

They ranked Chippewa Falls at fourth place for their "Christmas Village" light display in Irvine Park. There are over 100,000 lights in the display and well over over 200,000 holiday cheers (I counted). The display runs through January 1 so check it out before it's gone!

You can check out the rest of the list for yourself and even plan a holiday decoration roadtrip!
