milwaukee getaway!

i'm starting to realize how many cool/fun/cheap places there are to visit in the states. i've been so focused on euro travel for so long i've been neglecting my home turf. this summer i had a blast in nashville, just enjoyed a vaca in daytona beach and now me and 2 of my best girlfriends are heading to milwaukee for an overnight this weekend. i kind of always forget about milwaukee. when in need of a little getaway i scour my brain for a good nearby spot and usually end up in michigan. luckily my friend suggested milwaukee and i looked into it and there are all sorts of fun activities to do there!

on our way up we'll make a pitstop at the Brat Stop -

after we get into the city, we'll get started wtih a brewery tour at Lakefront Brewery -

then we'll visit the Milwaukee Art Museum -

if we have time to kill, we'll go to the Mitchell Park Conservatory -

then we'll hit the town for dinner and drinks and end the evening with bottles of wine at our hotel.

the next day we'll grab lunch and visit some shops at the Public Market -

and then we'll hit the road!

all that adds up to the best lil girl's getaway! anyone else been to milwaukee and have any suggestions??


  1. Oh my gosh I grew up in Milwaukee! It's a great place to visit. You'll have a ton of fun. Let me know if you need more things to do when you're there!

  2. This sounds like a ton of fun! Your right-- exploring your own backyard can often be put on the backburner. Hope you had a great time.
