Wisconsin Getaway: Destination Milwaukee

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.

Why Milwaukee?

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.
