4 Days in the US – Day 2 From Fitchburg⁩ to Mukwonago

2017-12-02 at 17:19

Day two of my short trip to the US. You find day one here. If you are in another time zone for only a few days you better keep your home time zone – if you can.
So I went to bed early and got up early as well.
Today I had a big circle in mind: from Fitchburg⁩ to Mukwonago where I had the next hotel.

Rodeway Inn Mukwonago

A bit after 16:00 I pulled into the parking lot of the Rodeway Inn Mukwonago in Mukwonago. My hotel for tonight. Nothing special but it was a bit away from the street so no noise in the night. Got my room and relaxed for the rest of the day with food and a few cold brews.

Actually – this is the best shower cabin in a very long time! It is really big so you have enough space.

If you are close to Mukwonago or Alpine Valley you can give the Rodeway Inn Mukwonago a try: here is the booking.com link. They have a pool as well so it is nice to relax. Do not expect to much from the free breakfast. Also the rooms could use some renovation.
