Enjoy Middleton in Every Season

Middleton in winter is all about setting your own pace and enjoying yourself.

  • Hidden Cave Cidery opened its tasting room in Middleton in summer 2021 and includes an outdoor patio during warmer days and an indoor space for functions and colder weather.
  • Stone Horse Green offers a beautiful outdoor space for meeting up with friends, grabbing a table to eat, listening to outdoor music and sitting around the fire pit.
  • Explore the Pheasant Branch Conservancy. You can do it on foot while the weather cooperates or, once the snow flies, strap on the snowshoes and get some fresh air. In order to protect the revitalized prairie landscape in the conservancy, snowshoeing is not allowed off trails and cross-country.
  • Capital Brewery & Bier Garten opens its bier stube during winter months and hosts the annual winter festival, Bockfest!


Explore the unique, local shops downtown, or head to the Greenway Station retail center for big names and great bargains.


Glide across the ice at the Capitol Ice Arena. Rentals are reasonable and there are lots of open skate times.

Wine and more wine

That's what you'll find at the Grape Water Wine Bar downtown. It's a great spot to meet with friends. On mild days, they set out heat lamps to enjoy a glass outdoors, otherwise cozy up within.
