As Milwaukee auto accident lawyers, we understand the desire to enjoy a true getaway without hours spent in the car or in line for airport security.

Here are four ideas for weekend getaways that are one hour or less from Milwaukee.

Lake Geneva, Wisconsin 

Easy access for wealthy Chicago residents has made Lake Geneva a luxurious getaway spot since the 1800s. Only 45 miles southwest of Milwaukee, the Walworth county area has everything from fine dining to challenging trails that will make a fine mess of your boots or bike.

Wisconsin’s capital has something to offer everyone, from nostalgic alumni to new Wisconsin residents. We love Madison as a getaway idea because it has nearly all of the amenities of a big city vacation, while being located right in your backyard. Here are some of our top ideas for a visit to Madison:


Sheboygan, Wisconsin

The Sheboygan and Elkhart Lake area of Wisconsin is less than an hour north of Milwaukee, but has gorgeous scenery and unique small towns that will offer you a true escape. Here are a few Sheboygan County highlights:


Waukesha County, Wisconsin

Waukesha and Pewaukee are a lot more than just Milwaukee suburbs. With beautiful scenery, interesting history and many fun (and warm) inland lakes, you just might find a great weekend getaway right off of the Interstate.

We hope these four ideas have inspired you to hit the road and explore more of Wisconsin. Let us know your favorite weekend getaway ideas, and if we missed any of your favorite spots in these four special locations.
