cheap vacation near Wisconsin?

We are looking to take a vacation in December. An ideal location would have plenty to do for a 3 yr. old and a 16 mo. old but won't be too expensive and will be within an 8 hr. drive of Wisconsin. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

  • The Dells is not cheap!
    Take the train or megabus into Chicago; get a cheap hotel on priceline.
    Send me a message offlist; there are tons of free and cheap things to do in Chicago.

  • Rockford IL has a Children's museum
    My kids love the Milwaukee Public Museum and the Domes
    My 3yr old's favorite place is The John Deere Pavillion in Moline IL /Quad Cities- you can climb in the equipment, they usually have a color or craft project for kids, and the store is next door. Quite a few other places in Quad Cities to see/ do too.
    Dubuque IA has the National Mississippi River Museum and Aquarium (it is neat) and Crystal Lake Cave is just south of Dubuque. My kids enjoyed both places
