Chicago, Milwaukee, and Some of Wisconsin in May

Jump to last reply

Mr. Pickle was born near Chicago and spent several years living in the Milwaukee area. He has wanted to take us to see his old stomping grounds for several years, and it looks like we'll be heading that way in mid-May. At this point, we're planning to leave May 14th and return either the 21st or 22nd.

I am just starting to do some research. We might fly into MKE, spend a day there, then head west; Mr. Pickle wants us to see The House on the Rock, Taliesin, and some things he remembers fondly from childhood.

From there, we would head to Chicago, drop off our rental car, and spend a few days in the city. He wants to go to the Museum of Science and Industry, and since PickleDude is a Red Sox fan, we're planning to see them play the White Sox.

I won't ask about other activities right now, since I'm just starting to consider possibilities, but what recommendations can you give me for Chicago lodging? Under $150 a night would be ideal.

How about food? Under $10 for lunch, under $20 for dinner? We'll eat just about anything. :-)

Thanks, y'all!

Lee Ann
