I’m a little late, but I still need to share our trip to Milwaukee. Instead of planning a romantic Valentine’s Day, Mike and I decided to take a trip to Milwaukee to explore the city and drink some beer (#5 on my list!)
We took the earliest Megabus to Milwaukee and got in around 6 AM. In hindsight, not the best idea. Instead of walking around and freezing our asses off, we walked to the Amtrak station that was close to the Megabus stop. Seeing as it was early, there were a lot of characters around, so we only stayed there for about an hour and walked to the nearest coffee shop, Stone Creek Coffee.
Little did we know that this coffee shop was going to be gorgeous inside with extremely nice employees.
Then we were supposed to go to a cheese factory, but the cab driver took too long and we missed it. So instead we walked around the corner and ate at a nice restaurant. They even had nice little flowers.And look at that bloody mary!
After that I was pretty much pooped. We walked quite a bit in the cold and I got cranky. But we ended up at the amtrak station and waited for our bus to come. Lesson learned: rent a car and drive to Milwaukee or have more money so you can take cabs and go to more tours.
