Fun and entertaining stop on a Milwaukee road trip! Just a few hours from the Madison or Chicago area!

Officially called the Mitchell Park Horticultural Conservatory, this is a great stop to learn about some plants and take some photographs.  You can even catch live music or a light show!   

Location: Mitchell Park Horticultural Conservatory - 524 S. Layton Boulevard, Milwaukee, WI 53215

Admission prices: https://county.milwaukee.gov/EN/Parks/Explore/The-Domes

There's plenty of other fun stuff to do in Milwaukee after this. Some ideas: 

  • Catch a Brewers or Bucks game 
  • Hike the Hank Aaron and Oak Leaf Trails
  • Hit up the Zoo
  • Head to the beautiful Lake Michigan. There are all kinds of trails along the lake: biking and pedestrian
  • Milwaukee Art Museum 
  • Wander around the Public Market and the Third Ward
  • There is so much good beer and food here! Check out some of the breweries, including Good City Brewing (go to the roof!)
