Hi, We are visiting from England for 2 weeks 31st July to 14th August.
Flying into Chicago and heading straight for 3 or 4 days in Milwaukee. There are 3 of us including our 11 year old son.
Firstly, with 2 weeks of luggage, can we Amtrak or similar from Chicago to Milwaukee and pick up the rental car at the end of Milwaukee stay (ready for heading off to Door County) or should we rent the car in Chicago, drive up and have the problem with parking etc in Milwaukee?
Secondly, we're considering whether the Pfister is worth paying the extra than the new Hilton Garden Inn Downtown, there are obvious differences but both look OK and therefore thinking possibly best to keep the extra cash for spending monies. Any thoughts?
Finally looking to do the Zoo, Discovery World, Art Museum, Miller Brewery, Harley Museum, Pabst Mansion, Public Museum and the Lakefront trail on bicycles. All this in 3 or 4 days. Are we missing anything we shouldn't and is this enough time?
Should mention we are going to a Brewers game one evening too.
Any tips, recommendations or advice would be appreciated.
Visiting Milwaukee, Door County, Wisconsin Dells and Chicago. Can't wait!
