Just a 90-minute drive (or Amtrak ride) north of Chicago, Milwaukee is a great destination for an overnight getaway. The city shares one of the former’s greatest resources – Lake Michigan – and sports some incredible things to do: world-class museums, top-notch theater, and, of course, some mighty fine beer.

Whether you’re heading up for a Cubs-Brewers game, the massive music binge that is Summerfest, or to drink your way through a few brewery tours, consider staying at these supercool Milwaukee Airbnbs and homes for a unique experience.
