DC to Milwaukee

Jump to last reply

My senior-aged-but-healthy mom has a fondness for her hometown (Racine, WI) and the Milwaukee Germanfest. She typically makes two trips there each summer.

Problem is, airports kind of scare her and the only nonstop trips from DC to Milwaukee are via Reagan National airport, which is about an hour away (in good traffic).

She and three of us kids live just 10 minutes from Dulles! Unfortunately, flights from Dulles are not nonstop to Milwaukee, and her one shuttle experience from Sterling to Reagan was a nightmare. Likewise, she's a little scared of changing planes at Atlanta or Chicago.

So, do any of you have good experiences, ideas, tips, etc. for: 1) easy ground transportation for her from Sterling to Reagan aiport, 2) no-hassle flights from Dulles to Milwaukee, 3) any other advice?

We do love our mom and she does love WI, and of course, we'll keep schlepping to Reagan for drop off and pick up if we have to. We're just looking for any suggestions for other options.

Thanks!
