A quaint village located just north of Madison, Waunakee bills itself as “The only Waunakee in the world.” You’ll feel like you’re in your own little world in Waunakee, but downtown Madison is still just a 20-minute drive away. Waunakee offers an array of housing options, from well established neighborhoods to new developments. Its downtown area is walkable, lined with boutique shops, restaurants, breweries, wine bars, and cafes. Spend the afternoon shopping downtown, and then escape to the Drumlin Ridge Winery to enjoy a glass of wine or a snack by the vineyards. Waunkee’s highly regarded school district makes it a popular destination for families. The Yahara River and Ripp Park, and quick access to Governor Nelson State Park and other conservation areas, provide scenic options for outdoor activities and recreation. Waunakee gives you the perfect blend of small-town living and quick access to urban areas and conveniences like the west side of Madison, Sun Prairie and the Dane County Regional Airport.
