Why Milwaukee


Whether you are looking to book a block of rooms for a local 5k, organize a state tournament, or plan a national championship, Milwaukee offers a price to satisfy every pocketbook. Our city features big-city entertainment at small-town prices. 


One of the nation’s top three airports in user friendliness is located just eight miles from downtown, with plenty of shuttles, taxis, limousine services, and coach transports to get groups back and forth. An Amtrak station is conveniently located near the terminal. Milwaukee’s Intermodal Station, with Amtrak and Greyhound Bus facilities, is mere blocks from the Convention Center Campus. Interstates 94 and 43 flow into and out of the city for quick freeway access throughout downtown and the outlying areas. Once you’ve settled in, you’ll discover plenty of taxis, a great public transportation system, and The Hop streetcar  that make getting around town a breeze.
