As you will find in many places around the USA public transportation in Milwaukee is not the greatest. If you have a car you can easily drive to Milwaukee and see some sites in a day, but if you are relying on the train or bus too get here, your sightseeing may be rather limited.

Do you have any idea what you would like to see in Milwaukee? Are you interested in museums, brewery tours, architecture? If you have a specific destination in mind it might be easier to let you know how practical the trip could be.

If you are relying on public transit AMTRAK has about 5 trains per day running between Chicago and Milwaukee and Greyhound has freqeunt bus service. The train takes about 1 hour and 45 minutes, the bus may be a little longer due to traffic.

One other suggestion if you are into music festivals. Summerfest begins June 29 and runs through almost two weeks. Top-notch entertainment, great food.

Other times of the summer there are tons of festivals, all you have to do is pick up a visitors guide. Enjoy!
