Wisconsin trip guidance - leaving Wednesday for Milwaukee, Green Bay, and Madison

Jump to last reply

My SO and I are heading to Wisconsin this Wednesday and I've spent plenty of time on all of the previous threads trying to glean as much advice as possible, but I wanted to toss out a request for the "best of the best" based on a pretty limited timeframe - we've got about a day and a half in Milwaukee, a day in Green Bay, and a half day in Madison before the UW/PSU game Saturday night. What to do, where to eat, what are the must-see things for a couple of twentysomethings from DC?

Some details -
We're staying at the Residence Inn in downtown Milwaukee, the Days Inn Lambeau Field in Green Bay, and we're only going to be in Madison for the day, driving there Saturday morning and then to Milwaukee after the game Saturday night.

Our must-sees so far -
Miller Brewery tour
Lambeau Field tour
Packer Hall of Fame
Brett Favre's Steakhouse
Titletown Brewing Company

Any thoughts? Anything you'd change? Like I said, we don't have too much planned yet but want to make the most out of our trip - we're both very active and don't mind a lot of walking, would prefer to limit driving if possible though.

Bonus - any suggestions on safe places for a visiting fan to park on game day in Madison? We're not planning on tailgating - I think our alumni association has a tailgate set up - but just need a place to leave the car for the day while we explore campus/downtown before the game.

THANKS in advance for your help!
