Delafield, Wisconsin, February 29, 2012 — The lively City of Delafield, Wisconsin, is just 30 minutes west of Miller Park, making it an attractive “home base” for baseball fans headed to the opening series of the Milwaukee Brewers baseball season. The 2012 season kicks off on Friday, April 6, 2012, against the St. Louis Cardinals. Visitors to Delafield will enjoy staying at a hotel near Miller Park, while experiencing fewer crowds and the inviting atmosphere of the charming City of Delafield.
Even though Delafield is set in the center of “Lake Country,” an area of natural beauty amid dozens of lakes, the hotels in Delafield are strategically located just off of Interstate 94. From there, it’s a convenient 23-mile trip right into the parking lot of Miller Park, one of the premier baseball stadiums in the country. The fully retractable roof at the ballpark guarantees the game will go on in rain and even snow!
Delafield is midway between Milwaukee and Madison and just minutes off the freeway, making it simple to come and go to the area’s popular attractions and kick back at one of Delafield’s comfortable hotels.
The City of Delafield offers several restaurants and shopping opportunities, many of which are within walking distance of the four hotels. A Colonial Williamsburg-styled downtown features specialty boutique shopping, delightful restaurants, and the luxurious and upscale Delafield Hotel, which was recently named to List of Top Wisconsin Hotels by U.S. News & World Report.
A short drive down Milwaukee Street, along scenic Nagawicka Lake at the center of the city, leads to the friendly Country Pride Inn and the popular hotel brands: La Quinta Inns & Suites and Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites. All three of which are located in a vibrant shopping district along Highway 83 and I-94 and within walking distance of several shopping retailers, restaurants, microbreweries, and dozens of other conveniences.
For guests who enjoy experiencing the outdoors, the hotels in Delafield are just minutes from some of the finest natural recreational opportunities in the area. Miles of hiking and biking trails wind through woods and prairies in nearby Lapham Peak Unit of the Kettle Moraine State Forest, located just south of I-94.
Gather your Brewers gear and make plans to stay in the City of Delafield, Wisconsin, for the opening weekend of Milwaukee’s favorite baseball team. For additional information on lodging, attractions, and things to do in the area, go to VisitDelafield.org or call 888-294-1082.

The City of Delafield becomes an Ice Age Trail Community
Delafield, WI — When complete, the Ice Age National Scenic Trail will cross approximately 132 communities in 31 of Wisconsin’s 72 counties. Along the way, the Trail takes users to some of the best glacial features in the world, provides opportunities for personal rejuvenation, is an outdoor classroom, and is an economic resource for communities. These assets make the Ice Age Trail a welcome addition to many communities ranging from small roadside stops to bustling metropolises.
The Ice Age Trail Alliance has established the Ice Age Trail Community program, designed to help communities leverage the Trail as an economic and social engine, while promoting the Ice Age National Scenic Trail to community members and visitors alike. Commitment to this program represents an agreement to cross promote one another, building healthy and vibrant communities.
