Milwaukee is one possibility. It only takes an hour and a half on the train or 2 hours on the bus.

I actually meant to do that day trip this December just gone, but the week I was in Chicago there was quite a bit of snow, and then very cold temperatures, and the day I was going to go the weather reports where saying not to do 'non essential travel'. So I didn't!

Milwaukee has a lot to offer for a day trip (and longer I'm sure!). It's got breweries, the coolest looking art museum, and this tacky Fonz statue. I mean, what more could you want?

Will you have a car? How far are you willing to drive?
