4 of the best places for romantic getaways in Wisconsin

From scenic lakeside retreats to rejuvenating resort towns, here are four of our favorite romantic getaways in Wisconsin.

1. Lake Geneva: a scenic lake retreat near Chicago & Milwaukee

Famous as a refuge for both Chicagoans and Milwaukeeans looking to escape urban life, Lake Geneva, WI is a low-key destination that offers fun watersports in summer and a plethora of exciting activities — from nearby skiing to ice skating, when the lake freezes over — in winter. There’s also a small downtown area with casual eateries, pubs and a couple coffee shops. 

This is an ideal romantic Wisconsin getaway for couples regardless of budget, as there’s a good mix of high-end and more casual resorts. The best Lake Geneva hotels for couples have inviting spas and cozy, intimate accommodations, too.

2. Wisconsin Dells: the state’s theme-park meccas also doubles as a romantic getaway

The city best known as the “Waterpark Capital of the World” might sound more like a family travel destination than a romantic getaway, but Wisconsin Dells has an intimate side to it as well. 

A big part of that? Amazing couples resorts like Sundara Inn & Spa, one of the most reputable wellness resorts in the entire American Midwest. This romantic hotel features both spacious suites and private villas, both of which boast plush accommodations and A+ amenities, like “designer spa bathrooms,” in-room fireplaces and more. 

Beyond the resorts, Wisconsin Dells is also surrounded by gorgeous forests like Mirror Lake State Park, complete with scenic hiking trails, canoe rentals and more — all of which are perfect for couples that love to get a taste of nature.

3. Milwaukee: the best urban romantic getaways in Wisconsin

Wondering how to spend a romantic weekend in Milwaukee? It starts with choosing the right lodgings in the city’s coolest neighborhoods (Iron Horse Hotel, The Pfister and Saint Kate - The Arts Hotel are all excellent, BTW). From here you can take in the city’s top sights — like the Milwaukee Art Museum — and sample some of Wisconsin’s best eateries and breweries.

Bonus: Lake Geneva isn’t too far away from Milwaukee, and you could totally split time between both romantic Wisconsin getaway destinations.

4. Kohler (outside of Sheboygan, WI): an elegant town with one of the best romantic getaways in Wisconsin

A “company town” back in the day, Kohler is a small town just outside Sheboygan (which makes its own case for being one of the more romantic getaways in Wisconsin), with a handful of nice golf courses, charming neighborhoods and some of the state’s most luxurious resorts, namely, The America Club.  

This ritzy resort boasts an elite spa, fine-dining options and a variety of opulent accommodations ranging from cozy standard rooms to lavish suites filled with vintage furnishings and elaborate decor.
