Sometimes derisively called “Chicago north,” Milwaukee is just two hours from Chicago by car, bus or train, and makes for a great weekend (or even long day trip) from the city. Home to Miller-Coors and several other breweries, it’s a haven for beer lovers. But this small city is coming into it’s own in other ways too, with new developments, a lively public market, a world-class art museum and a revitalized historic district. Check below for more info on how to get to Milwaukee, where to stay, and what to see and do in the city.
