A Wisconsin getaway to Milwaukee from Chicago is easy. The ride is less than two hours from downtown Chicago to downtown Milwaukee–even shorter by Amtrak from Chicago’s Union Station (1 1/2 hours) or one hour from the Glenview Station.
Milwaukee, Chicago’s sometimes overlooked little sibling, may just surprise you. If you’re looking for brats and beer, they’re still around. But if you want a refined experience with award-winning food and chefs, arts, culture and top-notch entertainment–check out the new Milwaukee.
