The AA non-stops on this route are...

OK, thanks. I wouldn't automatically characterize an industry-standard charge as a "good deal," but I guess that's a subjective term.

For context, a one-way bus ticket from Milwaukee to Appleton...

I like the idea, but I think it would be a logistical nightmare...both from an operations standpoint and from a ticketing/reservations standpoint. Not to be a Debbie-downer, but there's just no way...

Agree about not needing a car if you end up in a downtown hotel. If you go with an AirBnB you'll probably be outside the downtown core, making a car more of an attractive option. Bus service is...

I first learned about it when I bought my 2016 Rand McNally atlas. Looks like a fairly straight forward east-west highway, though I'm not really a fan of giving a two-digit interstate number to what...

An even more excellent point. More frequencies than Amtrak, a very competitive price, and drops you off right at O'Hare. Seems like the obvious choice if you need to get from...

I haven't stayed at the lodge, but I've done the cave tour and several hiking trails at the Monument. Definitely a worthwhile stopover if you're in the region.
