Fun quaint town?

My husband and I are planning a weekend trip for our July anniversary. We're looking for a smaller town but something that has a nice downtown area with little shops, resturants, plenty of activites. I was thinking maybe biking or canoeing (somewhere that rents out equipment). I was really interested in going to lake Geneva but not so thrilled with the touristy prices for hotels. Any suggestions?

You could check out Spring Green. It's a very artsy town and has canoeing on the Wisconsin River. If you like theater, be sure to take in an American Players Theater production.

Go north....to Bayfield. go sea kayaking with an outfitter to the apostle islands sea caves. go to big top Chautauqua and check out some shows.... take the ferry out to madeline island.... also in the area, ashland has a nice downtown and some nice hotels along the shores of lake superior.

Bayfield is an excellent suggestion. You have shows at the Big Top, berry picking in July!, kayaking, hiking, going to Madeline Island/Apostles, exploring Bayfield and much more.

Minocqua is a gem of a town with lots to do and very northwoods. It's a great location. http://www.minocqua.org/

Hayward is another one I recommend:

also voted "single best town in America" is Three Lakes, WI. This is on my must do list even before they won this honor but I haven't been yet.
