Planning a summer vacation but not sure where to start? From coast to coast, MKE offers nonstop flights to over 30 destinations, making it convenient to get wherever you decide to go. Here are three ideas for travel inspiration.
WEST COAST: See Seattle This Summer
Despite Seattle’s rainy reputation, you can still enjoy sunny springs and summers in the Emerald City. There is no shortage of things to see and do in Seattle as the city has something for everyone. With a thriving arts, culture and entertainment scene, there is always a show, museum, concert or festival to enjoy and nature lovers will never grow tired of the numerous hiking trails, the mountain vistas, Puget Sound, Lake Washington and the famous lush evergreen forests that give Seattle its nickname.
Whether you’re enjoying a cup of joe in one of the city’s over 2000 coffee shops or visiting the iconic Space Needle, Seattle is one city you won’t want to sleep on. Alaska Airlines already offers daily nonstop service from MKE to SEA and the carrier will have a second flight on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays beginning June 15, just in time for your summer vacation.
MIDWEST: Consider a Weekend Getaway to the Twin Cities
If you’re just looking for a quick getaway, consider Minneapolis/St. Paul. From beautiful lakes and parks and a thriving art scene to shopping galore and delicious cuisine, there’s something for everyone in the Gopher State.
Sun Country Airlines just added nonstop flights to and from Minneapolis-St. Paul on Fridays and Sundays through September 4, convenient for weekend trips to and from the Twin Cities. Pop in for the 3M Open Golf Tournament in July and see some of the top players on the PGA TOUR, plan a trip at the end of summer to check out the famous Minnesota State Fair, or visit the Twin Cities any other weekend and you’re sure to at least double your fun.
Introductory fares start as low as $39 each way.
EAST COAST: Take a Bite of the Big Apple with a Trip to NYC
There’s a reason they call New York “The City That Never Sleeps.” There’s so much to do there that you won’t want to waste a single second. New York is always buzzing with activity. From shopping, Broadway shows and Times Square to amazing restaurants, historical sights, a stroll through Central Park, and so much more, there are plenty of indoor and outdoor activities to satisfy every whim. Plus, it’s a quick and easy nonstop flight from MKE to any one of New York’s three major airports: LaGuardia, JFK and Newark via Delta, JetBlue or United Airlines.
