First of all, I'll apologize in advance for any english errors as I'm not a native speaker.
I'll be staying in Milwaukee from Apr/29th do May/1st, with my wife. I'll be arriving from Chicago in a rental car, and already have reservations for the County Clare Irish Inn which, according to some reviews I've read here at this site, is quite unique.
I plan to drive through Kenosha and Racine, as we would really like to both travel alongside lake Michigan and also view the lighthouses in those two cities (not many lighthouses around where we live). Also, we would like to stop at the "Pleasant Prairie Premium Outlets" (my wife's request).
First question I ask is where to have lunch: I've read about the Brat Stop, and I've also read about this Spot Drive-in in kenosha. Any more nice places to consider along the way? Any unique charming restaurants in the area? Kenosha's lake front seem to have lots of restaurants with fabulous views, but we couldn't really decide based on the many mixed reviews. Also, we are on a budget, so please nothing too expensive =).
I'm not sure how long we will be driving, but I imagine we will arrive in Milwaukee not earlier than 4pm (I'll leave Chicago shortly before noon). Next question: what would be doable in the rest of this first day? Is it feasible (and safe) to walk around the lake front the rest of the day, have some fish fry and then walk back to the inn? There's a list of things we'd like to do below, would any of these things fit this first day?
I made a list of things we would like to do/see in Milwaukee:
- The Domes
- North Point Lighthouse (would it be open saturday Apr/30?)
- Millers Brewery Tour
- Public Museum (will the Mummy Exhibit still be there?)
- A boat tour (is there any good one?)
- Discovery World (would two adults have fun there?)
- A bycicle ride at the lake front
- Have some fish fry
We will have the entire Saturday to explore the city, but I'm not sure how long would take to see/do each of the items above. Top priorities would be the Brewery Tour, the Mummies exhibit and the fish fry. Any advice on how to make the most of this day?
As for sunday, we will be leaving heading to Muscatine, so I'm not sure if we should leave really early and stop at Lake Geneva for lunch and a stroll, or simply enjoy some more of Milwaukee and maybe leave for Muscatine after lunch. Any suggestions?
