Milwaukee Vacations

Sometimes, traveler, life demands celebration and you must follow the beat of joyous drums to a new destination. Curving along the shores of Lake Michigan, just two hours north of Chicago, Milwaukee is more than Wisconsin’s largest city. Known as The City of Festivals, Milwaukee is the life of many parties. Add your energy to the celebrations or slow your pace in superb museums brimming with modern art and the history of America's automotive industry. Infuse your vacation in Milwaukee with the flavor of local craft beers and the gentle ebb and flow of the Milwaukee River as it winds through town. The journey begins with Milwaukee vacation deals and a tiny spark in your heart.

Top Hotels in Milwaukee

The best getaways begin with convenient flights and a fabulous place to stay. As you plan your trip to Milwaukee, consider these guest favorites:

  • The Pfister Hotel: When you walk through the lobby of the Pfister, look up—the ceiling may remind you of a visit to the Sistine Chapel. In East Town, you’ll be within walking distance to the Milwaukee Art Museum and Marcus Center for the Performing Arts as well as the waterfront. Of course, if you prefer to stay inside pampering yourself at the full-service spa or one of the hotel restaurants, that’s wonderful, too.
  • Hyatt Regency Milwaukee: In West Town, this Hyatt Regency is just steps from the Milwaukee County Historical Center and The Shops of Grand Avenue, so plan on some discovery and shopping between sightseeing and relaxing at the hotel coffee shop and restaurant.
  • The Park East Hotel: Whether you want to dine on the rooftop or watch a game at the bar after a long day at the Jewish Museum Milwaukee and Veterans Park, The Park East Hotel is the place for you. Amenities include a nightclub, so the fun doesn’t end until you’re ready to return to your comfortable room.
  • Brookfield Suites Hotel: Located in nearby Brookfield, this hotel is simply elegant. Relax immediately as you walk through the open, neutral-toned décor and get comfy in your luxury room. West of Milwaukee, you’ll find several amusement parks and outdoor activities, like Sky Safari—perfect for a family getaway.

Cut to the Chase

Once your Milwaukee vacation begins, make your way to the Harley Davidson Museum in the Menomonee Valley. While there, explore the history and development of Harley Davidson, the most iconic of American motorcycle brands. If this symbol of Americana feeds your hunger for the open road, then a road trip along the banks of Lake Michigan may be in order.

To trade chrome for natural wonder, tour the Mitchell Park Domes. Whether visiting the tropical enclosure filled with sky-high palms and delicate orchids, the desert dome displaying brilliantly blooming cacti, or the third and seasonally changing dome, you'll find an environment to your liking here. When you leave behind the cornucopia of color, experience a key part of Milwaukee's heritage during a Miller Brewery Tour in nearby Miller Valley. Visit Frederick Miller's original caves and enjoy samples of Miller-Coors products.

Festivals and Events

In the early summer, breezes along the Lake Michigan shoreline carry the sounds of dozens of bands performing at Summerfest, the largest music festival in the world. Headliners pack the Marcus Amphitheater, and music of virtually every genre is found at multiple stages across the grounds. Visitors from around the world come to this event—a must for solo travelers and Milwaukee family vacations alike.

Every June, the Milwaukee Lakefront Festival of Art comes to the shoreline just north of the Milwaukee Art Museum. It is one of the largest art festivals in the entire Midwest, and the perfect place to relax, rejuvenate, and find inspiration. Stroll among the dozens of booths, sample gourmet fare and relax at the wine or beer gardens. Raise a toast to the journey.

Curate the perfect Milwaukee vacation package with Travelocity. You’ll save on airfare and hotels when you book them together, all wrapped up in our price-matching guarantee. Did we mention that beer cheese awaits? Oh, it does, and it is its own kind of celebration.
