we went to Milwaukee for a wedding this weekend and decided to take the ferry instead of driving all the way around lake Michigan.
definitely worth it, saved us a ton of driving and we didn’t have to deal with parking the car and all that nonsense.
the trip takes 2h30 across the narrow point of lake Michigan (80 miles). the return trip took a bit longer due to the high seas.
the lake was quite angry given that it’s already fall. waves were over 6 feet and the boat was rocking heavily back and forth. the crew was handing out dramamine and ginger chews for the folks that were having some seasickness.
