anything near the airport?

I've already looked on these main sites about anything to do in Milwaukee, but couldn't come up with anything great. Husband and I are flying in to an airport hotel for a biz conference the 1st wknd in April. Haven't ever been to Milwaukee, and don't want to travel too far since we won't have a car...any ideas?

What are your interests? I could point you in a direction then. Perhaps shuttles or taxis (etc.) would help you out so you can enjoy a few Milwaukee places.

A few Milwaukee places:

The Domes/Mitchell Park Conservatory is one unique location.

Many enjoy the Discovery World Museum (a museum adults can easily enjoy!) and the Milwaukee Art Museum.

The airport is in a typical boring, suburban area. Have you thought about renting a car for the day? If rates are not too high you can get out and enjoy the city. We have a Great art museum, a great Harley Davidson museum, several other great museums, a great zoo, some great restaurants, theater and nightlife and a truly Great lake. No matter what anyone says, no one can say we don't have a great lake in Milwaukee.

activity wise you won't find anything near the airport. Unless you want to listen to the cheesy lounge music they sometimes have at Packing House.

Hop on the Amtrak and end up downtown - where you can partake in all sorts of activities. The Art Museum has the Frank Lloyd Wright exhibit right now, and there are some great plays at the Milwaukee Repertory Theater.
