Ten Chimneys is one of the premier cultural attractions in the country — and an unparalleled experience for guests with a wide range of interests. theater, history, decorative arts, gardening, antiques, and architecture all make a trip to Ten Chimneys an inspirational journey. That said, there’s a reason Broadway legends Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne chose to build their home and retreat in Southeastern Wisconsin.  If you’re looking for a multi-day trip, your choice of first-class cultural attractions are abundant.


Your excursion begins. Ten Chimneys Foundation will provide engaging and educational video options for those who want to show them on the motorcoach. Check in for a multi-day stay at a hotel or resort in Downtown Milwaukee, or just west in Waukesha County.  There’s so much to do in this area, you’ll be able to stay at one hotel for your entire trip.


Experience the whimsy and magic of Ten Chimneys during the day, including lunch overlooking the beautiful Kettle Moraine landscape.  That evening, enjoy a show at one of the many exceptional theatre venues within 30 miles of Ten Chimneys – for example: Milwaukee Repertory Theater, Fireside Dinner Theatre, Skylight Opera Theatre, or the Sharon Lynn Wilson Center.


During the day, explore the Milwaukee Art Museum (with the internationally heralded Calatrava addition), or travel back to the 1800s at Old World Wisconsin, or take in one of Milwaukee’s many Lakefront Festivals. Then, consider an evening at the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, or Florentine Opera or Milwaukee Ballet.


To conclude your visit try a Brewery Tour or pick from any of the previously mentioned options before checking out of your hotel and heading back home. You’re sure to feel refreshed and invigorated, just as Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne did when they left Ten Chimneys and Wisconsin to head back to Broadway.
