Milwaukee to Toronto (ONT) Using the Ferry System

by Seabiscuit

Low and high, high and low, I have looked everywhere. Has anyone done the Milwaukee, WI to Toronto, ONT trip using the ferry system across Lakes Michigan and Huron (God, I hope that's the right lake). I'm trying to find a way to avoid a nasty trip just on the US highway system going to Connecticut. Toronto to Connecticut is a scant 9 hour drive, whereas, Rochester, MN to CT is around 20 hrs. We will be taking a car (obviously) so portage with that item is mandatory.

We'll be heading out May 20. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
A gagillion thanks to anyone that can help.

Re: Milwaukee to Toronto (ONT) Using the Ferry System

by Ron607

We looked into the ferry from Milwaukee to Muskegon when our daughter moved to Traverse City, MI as a way to save some time going around the lower end of Lake Michigan. (They have a web site It turned out that the cost was just under $80 for the car and $70 for each person each way and they have return fare rates as well. The drive from Waukegan IL to the Muskegon area is around three or four hours and the ferry would not save much time. We were looking at it going both directions so we drive mostly because the cost didn't justify the relatively minor time savings. Don't know anything about crossing Lake Huron.
Don't forget to visit the Submarine Museum in Groton CT! Have a nice trip.

Have you LOOKED at a map????

To make this journey by water assuming such ferries existed, you'd have to go all the way north from Milwaukee on Lake Michigan to where it met Lake Huron then back all the way south again on Lake Huron to its southernmost point and portions of Lake Erie to Detroit, then east along the entire length of Lake Erie and portions of Lake Ontario to Toronto.

It would end up taking MUCH MORE time than the highways!

"Have you LOOKED at a map????"

Hopefully, that was said in levity. I see you have no pages, no information, no nothing. As such, I'll ignore the comment completely. And, thank you for sharing. Idiot.

Sorry, Ron. That comment was issued at 'timessquare'. Not you. And I shall! ;O)

You are an idiot, Seabiscuit.

Because had you LOOKED at a map, you would see what I mean.

Onward in your foolish quest.

Travel Tips for Milwaukee

Milwaukee - Lake Effect

by blaird

Milwaukee is situated on the Western shore of Lake Michigan. The Lake Effect definitely is a real effect on the weather. In the Summer the air will get warmer as you move away from the Lake and in the Winter it tends to be a little milder in the city than farther away from the Lake.

Speaking of the lake effect, I was driving from teh Western subrubs to downtown lask week. It went from clear and sunny to cloudy and snowy the closer I got to the lake.

Driving down Wisconsin Avenue

by yooperprof

Heading toward the lake, Wisconsin Avenue is one of the main thoroughfares of the central business district here.

The skyscraper at the end of the vista is the 100 E. Wisconsin building, which dates from the late 1980s. Its gabled roof recalls an earlier gabled tower that existed on the site, the 14-story Pabst Building.

I took this picture while driving.

Robert Burns Sculpture - Burns Commons

by yooperprof

You may not think of Milwaukee as a particularly Scottish city, but they do have a small urban park and a fine proud statue dedicated to the great bard of Edinburgh. The Burns statue was a gift of Scottish immigrant James Andersonb Bryden, and was dedicated in 1909.

Burns Commons is located on the East Side, where N. Prospect runs into Franklin Place.

The Inferiority Complex

by gerblunk

We have an inferiority complex. Every Milwaukeean will verify this. This "aw shucks, I'm only from Milwaukee" thing has been with us a long time. One could read this as modesty, but this inferiority complex really gets in the way of progress sometimes. But that's changing.

Probably the most likely cause for our inferiority complex is the mere presence of our friend and neighbor, the third largest city in the country, what some of us call "the southernmost suburb of Milwaukee." This is of course Chicago, a great American city if there ever was one. Milwaukee to Chicago is kind of like Canada to the United States -- we feel overshadowed, overpowered, pretty much over-everythinged by our neighbor. But like Canada we've learned to hold our heads high and be damn proud of what we've got, of course fully aware that everything we've got they've also got, and probably got better. But if Canada is a kinder, gentler version of the United States, then damn it, Milwaukee is a kinder and gentler Chicago. Smaller, less brash and "noticable." Less traffic, crime, corruption, pollution. We could be like Canada and get over our inferiority complex by changing our flag or trying to host the Olympics or something. But instead we've just tried to build a better city. Eventually we may get recognition, but, as any Milwaukeean will tell you, that will be a long, long time from today.

Pettit National Ice Center

by mwenn2100

The Pettit National Ice Center is a U.S. Olympic Training Facility that provides ice sporting fun for the entire family. The facility is huge and very well maintained. It opened in 1992 and was the training facility for 2 gold medalists from the 1994 Winter Olympics... Bonnie Blair and Dan Jansen (both speedskaters.) Since then it has maintained it's importance as a training and competing center for Speedskating. If you're in town during a competition be sure to check it out!

If you're not quite at the Olympic level however, the Pettit can provide a fun place to practice your figure skating or hockey skills! They also just opened up a track that can be used for walking or running. Whether you go just for fun or want to join a club that practices there, the Petit is definitely state of the art. You can also have parties and events at the center.

I'm a horrible skater (you know the type, must slam into wall to stop) and while I haven't been there in a couple of years I always had fun here and people seeing it for the first time are always in awe of the facility. You can bring your own skates or you can easily rent them for a fee. There are lockers inside the building to hold your valuables and a food stall for after you burn all those calories. Remember to dress warmly though... obviously the building is kept cool! Check out the website for free skating time.
