A college kid staycation at the Downtown Courtyard Marriott

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 21:36:00 CDT

I was assigned to check out the Courtyard Marriott. Located in the heart of Downtown Milwaukee, the Marriott is a perfect location if you are on business, just visiting Milwaukee - or needing a staycation away from campus.

A holiday hotel getaway in the heart of Downtown

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 19:16:00 CDT

I'm not much of a believer in staycations or in celebrating Christmas before Thanksgiving. So, of course, I found myself taking a Christmas in November vacation a block from my office. It was a night that made me a believer.

A girls night out stay at the new Milwaukee Westin

Sat, 18 Nov 2017 13:01:00 CDT

I'm a sucker for a hotel that feels cool and cozy all at the same. And the new Westin in Downtown Milwaukee, nestled behind the towering U.S. Bank building on Van Buren Street, accomplishes just that.

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 09:01:00 CDT

One tank weekend getaways: A food lovers guide to La Crosse

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 14:03:00 CDT

Kimpton Journeyman offers visitors every reason to fall for the Cream City

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 09:03:00 CDT

Whether it's a staycation or a trip to a new locale, the place you stay when you visit a city can set the tone for your entire trip. That's why it pays to seek out spots like the Kimpton Journeyman, where the location is just as compelling as the hotel itself.

Mon, 13 Nov 2017 09:03:00 CDT

Bay View's first hotel, the Kinn Guesthouse, at 2535 S. Kinnickinnic Ave., may be small - it only has eight guest rooms - but it offers a big experience. It's the kind of place guests will remember long after visiting.

Sturgeon Bay provides perfect entry to Door County fall family fun

Wed, 25 Oct 2017 14:01:00 CDT

Sturgeon Bay feels quite a bit different than Fish Creek and Sister Bay; it's a place where people live and work, and it's much more than a tourist trap. It's also a great home base for a fall family vacation in Door County.

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 13:04:00 CDT

Video: A Lake Express Ferry journey

Mon, 18 Sep 2017 15:02:00 CDT

Our first stop on a long road trip east? A 15-minute drive to Bay View to board the Lake Express Ferry. The two-and-half-hour trip not only saved us navigating Chicago on a Friday morning, but was also great fun in itself. And there's definitely something to be said for arriving in Michigan ready to go with a full tank of gas.

Fri, 25 Aug 2017 14:10:00 CDT

"Adulting" has a pretty negative connotation on social media. But when you're in your forties, there's no better way to experience the magic of Door County. Farm-to-table dining, galleries and great coffee, it's time to indulge your grown-up side.

Milwaukee and Erin Hills: A family's adventure of fun, food and fescue

Sun, 25 Jun 2017 16:46:00 CDT

For us 40-something Northeasterners, Milwaukee knowledge is largely based on exposure to "Wayne's World" and "Laverne and Shirley," picturing a Stan Mikita's donut shop next to a sausage factory and brewery on every block. But after my recent trip to Milwaukee, I now know better.
