    You're allowed to go into a diff concourse for food as long as you have a boarding pass! On that note make sure you go to French meadow bakery in C for the best chicken & wild rice soup I've ever had!

    A low-fare, easy travel choice offering dozens of non-stop flights, options for local cuisine, a GREAT used bookstore, the Gallery of Flight Museum and FREE ping pong while you wait for your flight.

    For a relatively small airport, MKE has a great Delta Sky Club in Terminal D. Check it out. Self managed bar and they even have one of my my fav WI beers "Spotted Cow" ale from New Glarus Brewery!

    This is a great little easy airport. Showcasing milwaukee based companies & putting thought into ensuring enough seating is in stark contrast to the crappy southwest terminal at la guardia.

    Honestly my favorite airport. Clean, modern, not very crowded and small enough to easily walk the whole length. The rental cars are a short walk across the street from baggage claim.

    While in Milwaukee check out the Lakefront Brewery tour $7 gets you four 6oz samples of some awesome beer, a souvenier glass, and a kick a** tour.

    One of the most convenient airports to fly in and out of. The absolute best USO I have ever visited.

    If you have a friend waiting to pick you up, have them wait in 3rd floor parking structure. Bing bang boom!

    General Mitchell is an amazing airport! Always quick at check in and at the security check point. Would recommend flying through Milwaukee anytime

    Milwaukee has one of the best airports. Easy in, easy out. Don't forget where you parked! Make sure to take a photo.

    One of the best and easiest airports to fly in and out of!TSA are great, great shopping options but Food pretty much sucks...pre & post security.

    Perfect alternative to O'hare. TSA agents are as clueless as any major/mid-size airport. Not much food selection inside so don't come hungry. Colectivo coffee saves the day.

    there’s a corner of the airport where Aaron Rodgers farted after eating an Auntie Ann’s pretzel that’s now sealed in an air tight glass case.

    Welcome to our great city! Don't forget to pay a visit to Clock Shadow Creamery to pick up some fresh Cheese Curds. A Milwaukee original.

    If you have to change planes and the lay over is more than 1 hour, make sure you eat or have a sack snack cause eateries are slim to none! "Seriously" the bathrooms nice are though😃

    If you have time, visit the Mitchell Gallery of Flight located near Concourse E. It is full of historical artifacts to Milwaukee’s aviation history and pays homage to Gen. Mitchell & Capt. Sijan

    This is an easier for me to get in & out of the MKE airport than the Chicago O'hare. Easier to drop off & collect bags as well as departing the gates are close by.

    Be sure to get to the airport a bit early as there is a nice used book store in the concourse.

    It’s a small but very good and friendly airport. The options for food are nice and the walking distances are not crazy at all.

    Fly southwest. find an attractive person . Make conversation before boarding so you can choose your seat and not have to sit next to the big or annoying person. Safe travels

    Grab some Alterra Coffee in Concourse D (maybe the others as well). A major step above your average airport coffee.

    Concourse E - Cooler by the Lake has surprisingly good food. The breakfast quesadilla is big enough for 2 & delicious. order extra salsa.

    Not a lot of food choices, but chili’s on this concourse is always a safe bet for quick and simple food.

    Go Riteway is the cheapest way to get from the airport to any hotel in Milwaukee. $24 for a round trip ticket. Can't beat it!

    Darrell Lea Licorice is the best! Buy it at any of the shops inside you will not be disappointed! Try the strawberry!

    If you are stuck in the area for the night the new Marriott Residence Inn is awesome. I may be biased since I was the principal in charge for the A/E team.

    Flying out of Milwaukee? Use the GO Riteway airport shuttle! It's cheap and they get you to the airport with plenty of time. Schedule a pick-up 24 hours in advance. Rountrip service gets $1 off!

    If you're in concourse D, know that there is a moving walkway on the *lower* level but not the upper. There are escalators at both ends, so it's effectively a shortcut.

    Park on level 3 - red section. Right level for the terminal, and closest too! Though often very full...
