Looking for a fun weekend getaway not too far from Chicago? Consider Sheboygan, Wisconsin, a lakeside location where there’s a great family-friendly resort, a cute downtown area, diversions for the family, and of course…brats!

Reasons why we will be back to Sheboygan, Wisconsin:

  • Close to Chicago. We love road trips that are less than 3 hours away, and since Sheboygan is just one hour north of Milwaukee, we weren’t on the road for that long.
  • A great resort hotel! We loved our stay at Blue Harbor Resort (read review here) and having an attached waterpark was truly the icing on the cake. Plus, the spa was great and definitely much needed for this preggo momma!
  • Sheboygan is known as the Bratwurst Capital of the World, so of course we indulged in bratwurst sandwiches. We particularly enjoyed eating at the unassuming restaurant, Charcoal Inn Grill.

  • Cute children’s museum! Above & Beyond Children’s Museum – the kids had a blast here (review to follow)

  • Cute downtown area with fun shopping especially if you’re looking for things to decorate the home. We stopped by Relish for unique kitchen items and Design Cents for cute decor finds for the home without the hefty price tag.
