Here at VISIT Milwaukee we are celebrating National Travel & Tourism Week (May 3-11) and we are giving away a “staycation” in MKE, in honor of this special week. The week-long campaign is designed to encourage you, a Milwaukee local, to spread the word about the city’s many amazing attractions.

Throughout this week you can submit unlimited images and comments showcasing your favorite Milwaukee destinations to our Twitter, Instagram and Facebook with the hashtag “VisitMKE”. All entries must be in by 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, May 11.  One lucky winner will receive a one-night stay at Hotel Metro, a $100 SURG Restaurant Gift Card to be used at any of its eight locations and a $100 Uber car credit to be used whenever/wherever you may please.

A winner will be chosen on Monday, May 12, and announced on both the VISIT Milwaukee Facebook and Twitter.
