An afternoon jaunt to Stillwater is an easy day trip. However, if you simply travel a couple more miles into Hudson, Wisconsin, there's even more fun to be had. Along the main drag of the historic downtown area you'll find lots of local restaurants, from cute little cafes and pizza joints to serious fine dining. There are beautiful older homes to stroll by along Third Street, and Seasons on St. Croix and Phipps Center for the Arts host regular gallery exhibitions. The waterfalls at Willow River State Park are lovely, as is the drive to get there. Be sure to pick up some truffles from Knoke's Chocolates as an edible memento of your little adventure.
