Getting to Milwaukee

Your travel plans to Milwaukee could vary greatly based on where you are coming from. One third of the US population lives within a day’s drive of Miluwakee! If you’re coming from the Chicago area or flying into Chicago, you can catch a ride on an Amtrak Train.

If you’re coming from a bit (or a lot) further, the General Mitchell International Airport is just 5 miles south of downtown Milwaukee.

Public Transportation

Milwaukee has plenty of public transportation available. Visit Milwaukee has all the details, but some highlights are listed below.


What to Pack
for Milwaukee



In late August, Milwaukee's temperatures are usually quite pleasant, with highs in the low to mid 70s, and lows in the low to mid 60s.


Because temperatures vary greatly from room to room, we recommend wearing layers to adjust as you need to throughout the day.


Casual or business casual attire may feel most comfortable. Some attendees like to dress up a bit for the Saturday party. 


We try to provide everything you'll need, but you might like to bring a refillable water bottle to refill as needed.
