May be off to Milwaukee with work for a few days in late October and I'm trying to work out if it is worth extending the trip to a vacation around Wisconsin and Michigan.
I have never visited this part of the USA before. I gather we would be quite close to Chicago and may fly into there and have a few days there before driving to Milkwaukee.
I like the outdoors, so seeing the Great Lakes in all their splendour would be great.
However, without reading a great deal into this (and forgive me for not being much better informed yet) I'm not sure that the weather would be so great to 'sight-see' in Wisconsin at that time of year, although we are used to rain (hello Britain) but not so used to extreme cold temperatures.
I'm also a bit concerned that my husband will have 3 days in Milwaukee without me - is there enough for him to do on his own (i.e. not the best things because we'd do them together).
I guess I'm trying to work out whether the extra expense of car hire, extra nights in a hotel and a flight for the husband are worth it particularly with the concerns about the weather. It isn't the type of place I'd think to go on holiday which is why I like to make the most of these kind of opportunities!
