They call Milwaukee a lot of things – but maybe what you haven’t heard is how fabulous in and around Milwaukee can be for your honeymoon. Whether you’re a Wisconsin native, the Brewers’ biggest fan, a total lake addict, or just an all-American couple, Milwaukee contains endless fun for your honeymoon destination.
So gather all your honeymoon accessories and eat your heart out at the numerous festivals throughout the year, or sophisticate your taste at the Milwaukee Museum of Art – whatever your cup of tea, Milwaukee has it!
Ever heard of the greatest music festival on earth? Summerfest is the largest music festival in the world and finds its home in Milwaukee. With over 800 gigs in eleven days, this is the IDEAL spot for any music loving couple. All your collective, favorite tunes in one spot – with local restaurants to give you both all the flair this Lake Michigan city has to offer!
The Rich and the Famous
Luxury should be the underlying word of any great honeymoon. Relaxation and not a care in the world is exactly what any couple needs right after the craziness of their wedding. Kick back and relax at one of Milwaukee’s historic and upscale hotels! We suggest The Pfister. For a week of spa packaging, day trips around the city, and cocktails in the lounge with live piano music evenings.
Or, try the extravagant yet modern Iron Horse Hotel.
Popular with the motorcycle crowd [hello: THE Harley-Davidson Museum is right down the street], and any passing-through type of tourist, the Iron Horse Hotel offers lovers a totally unique experience in one of America’s favorite cities.
“Genuine American City”
That’s right. Milwaukee has a nickname, you USA lovin’, lovebirds! If you’re looking for a great place to take a load off, watch a few Brewers’ games and drink world-famous beer – look no further! What better way for a marriage to begin than over a home series for the Milwaukee Brewers? Complete your days with visits to a few local breweries, including MillerCoors!
Out of Town
Get out of town with a honeymoon stay at a few Milwaukee town favorites! Stout’s Island Lodge is a five-hour drive northwest of Milwaukee that will blow your minds and bring you the perfect honeymoon getaway! Boasted as the “island of happy days,” the serene yet fun setting of Birchwood, WI will give you both the time of your lives.
Another popular destination for newlyweds just a quick jaunt down the street from Milwaukee is Lake Geneva. Known for its darling bed & breakfasts, great fun, and hometown charm, this location will give you memory after memory from your honeymoon.
