Nine Milwaukee-area, southeastern Wisconsin day trip ideas

You don’t need to travel all that far to take a vacation, especially not in Southeastern Wisconsin.

Here are nine day trip ideas to explore and unwind with events, historical locations and plenty of photo opportunities. Some suggestions can be visited at any time of year, while others are more season-specific.

1. Old World Wisconsin in Eagle

Have you ever felt like you belonged in a different time period? Step into the Dairyland’s past at Old World Wisconsin, W372 S9727 Highway 67, Eagle, and see what life was like in the late 1800s and early 1900s.

Sixty restored historical buildings sit on more than 600 acres connected with gardens and trails, according to the Old World Wisconsin website. It’s more than just still scenes of days past. Rather, visitors can interact with costumed staff sharing the history of the location and talking about what life was like. Don’t just look and listen; visitors young and old can help with chores and cooking, create crafts and experience trades.
