Winter is the perfect season for a staycation! Hotel rates are low and staying overnight in a local hotel with a pool is a great way for your family to break up your regular routine and feel like you are on vacation while staying close to home.

Check in, go for a swim, decompress in the room with some naps or TV and snacks, pick up takeout from a local restaurant, play a board game after dinner, take another swim, snuggle in for a family movie and then hit the sack. The next day, grab breakfast and swim again and then head back home!

We asked around with other local parents and these are the Milwaukee Area Hotels with Pools that they recommended for a family-friendly staycation!
