Weekend Getaway – Away from Chicago

We all love this city well, that is until the winters become too cold and the summers become too hot. As we settle into spring and everyone’s taxes are filed away, it might be time for a weekend getaway, in your Berman Auto Group vehicle, of course.

Chicago is great but it’s also surrounded by other great places worth visiting, at least for the weekend. Here are Berman Auto Group’s picks for your local weekend getaway – all just a relatively short distance away.

Milwaukee
You can make this trip by car in about 90 minutes, or you can jump on the Amtrak for more than an hour train ride to make it to Milwaukee. So now that you are on your way, you’re probably wondering: what is there to do in Milwaukee? To start, Milwaukee has some underrated art museums, like the Milwaukee Art Museum and the Charles Allis Art Museum. After a couple hours in the museum, you’re going to be hungry. Head over to the river walk which has a scenic view and plenty of food options to choose from, or head over to the Milwaukee Public Market. Lastly, it isn’t a trip to Wisconsin without visiting the Wisconsin Cheese Mart!

Ann Arbor
About a four-hour drive in your Berman Automotive set of wheels and you will hit Ann Arbor, Michigan. Ann Arbor is home to the University of Michigan, but it’s also known for its delicious wine and beer, so be prepared. If you are a beer person, head over to Arbor Brewing Company or Grizzly Peak Brewing Company for some seasonal picks. If you are a wine person then head over to Vinology. A trip to Ann Arbor is never complete without a visit to Zingerman’s Deli for sandwiches, ice cream and other treats to bring back home after your weekend away. The University Art Museum is the perfect spot to finish off your weekend getaway before heading back to Chicago.

New Buffalo, Michigan
As soon as the weather starts to warm up, New Buffalo, Michigan is a ‘hot’ destination. The drive is just a little over an hour long in good traffic. Feeling hungry? New Buffalo is ready to feed you and the whole family. Bacon Jam and local meats at P&E Mullins Local have a large following. New Buffalo also has fun options for adults, kids and families alike, such as Evolve Spa, Kids Quest and the New Buffalo Public Beach. With it being such a short drive away from Chicago, let New Buffalo be your quiet town get-away this spring and summer.
