I was born and raised near the Wisconsin-Illinois state line—a circumstance that gave me plenty of opportunities for Wisconsin weekend getaways. It started with my parents, camping in the woods or visiting Milwaukee for a city retreat. When I got older, it shifted to my friend group. Wisconsin holds a special and continuous place in my heart; once you get there and discover all the things you can do, it’s easy to see why so many people consider it a personal playground.
Whether you want to enjoy a waterpark with your family, plan a romantic weekend away with your partner, or even go on a quick hiking trip, Wisconsin has a spot for everyone and their interests. And because every good weekend deserves an equally great place to sleep, hunker down in one of these eight lodging options—designed to match the vibe of your trip.
