If you haven’t been to Milwaukee before or are thinking of coming here again, now is the time to book your vacation. Milwaukee just added two new motorcycle hot spots to its already motorcycle-friendly city.
Most of you probably know that Milwaukee is the proud home of the Harley-Davidson Motor Company. To see the company itself was always a key tourist attraction, but now with the opening of the Harley-Davidson Museum we have yet another world-class attraction to add to the list of places to see and visit while in town. The museum offers an exhibit of the history, culture, people and products that are Harley-Davidson as well as special events to attend, such as Thirsty Thursdays, The All-You-Can-Eat Friday Fish Fry and Movie Night at the Museum.
We also have an incredible place to stay that truly caters to the motorcycle enthusiast. Are you one of the 350,000 bike-loving visitors expected each year at the new Harley-Davidson Museum in Milwaukee? Now you can now pull into the museum parking lot with your own bike.
The new Iron Horse Hotel, conveniently located in downtown Milwaukee across the river from The Harley-Davidson Museum is the industry’s first urban boutique hotel geared toward business travelers and discriminating motorcycle enthusiasts. The hotel offers covered motorcycle parking, rag bins and check-in carts – perfect for transporting saddle bag contents to and from your room. There’s an on-site bike wash and arrangements can be made for on-call bike servicing. They’ll even pack a lunch for your saddle bag, provide Milwaukee ride routes and suggest bike-friendly spots throughout the area.
The entire lobby, a stunning display of American Industrial-era architecture, is designed to greet guests whether in high heels or dirty boots. Enjoy a beer or cocktail, grab a bite to eat or check out the views of downtown and the Harley-Davidson Museum. The Yard, a huge outdoor patio offers the perfect gathering place to exchange stories from the day. And there are even rejuvenation spa services to beat tired muscles from a long day on the road.
Sound too good to be true? Well, it gets even better because HaulBikes just recently partnered with The Iron Horse Hotel to offer you fabulous rates on shipping your bike so you can ride your own baby while in Milwaukee. Guests of The Iron Horse Hotel receive a special flat shipping rate to the hotel of $525 one-way and $995 for a round-trip, all inclusive.
Believe it or not, there’s still more. Milwaukee is so rich in arts, culture, festivals, museums and restaurants, that you’ll have a tough time sorting out your “places to see and things to do” on your trip’s itinerary.
While you’re here, ride your bike to the world-famous Milwaukee Mile Speedway and its annual Milwaukee Rally held in August, where riders and non-riders enjoy live bands, great food, plenty of beer and lots of motorcycle-related vendor booths, featuring a factory display and demo ride sponsored by Milwaukee’s own – Harley-Davidson.
Once you’ve made plans to visit the Milwaukee Rally presented by the Harley-Davidson Dealers of Metro Milwaukee, then plan to contact HaulBikes. Like Harley-Davidson, Haul Bikes is one of Milwaukee’s “own”!
