Rooms still available for fast-approaching Harley-Davidson anniversary celebration
Last-minute travelers can find lodging now at WisconsinLodging.org/Harley

 There is still lodging available in the Milwaukee area during the Harley-Davidson anniversary celebration August 29 – September 3, 2013, and WisconsinLodging.org will help you find it!

The Wisconsin Hotel & Lodging Association has created the only portal that matches up Harley celebration enthusiasts with available lodging up to a two-hour drive from Milwaukee. Available at WisconsinLodging.org/Harley, the portal allows travelers to browse available lodging by distance from the festivities, in 15-minute driving time increments and book directly online or call for reservations. With reservations and cancellations changing availability each week, the page is updated with the most current information each Thursday through August 29. More than 50 properties are currently listed, with a variety of available dates.

“It is critical to get the word out to those considering coming to the Milwaukee area for the Harley celebration that there is still lodging available,” said Trisha Pugal, WH&LA President/CEO. “We hope to connect those travelers with rooms that best fit their needs, whether they stay 15 minutes away or even 2 hours away. We have a beautiful city and state, and are truly looking forward to rolling out the welcome mats for our many Harley friends coming to the area.”

In Presque Isle, WI, the Alpine Resort is garnering some excitement of their own. National Geographic magazine featured the resort in its May/June issue as one of 10 American family resorts made for reconnecting. Of the resort, the article says:

Set in far northern Wisconsin on a pristine lake amid towering white pines, this down-home resort, with its collection of circa 1920s log cabins complete with knotty pine interiors, is a real throwback. These days, owners Kim and Tim Bowler and their ten-year-old daughter, Cameil, host angling lessons off the dock and stargazing around the campfire (look for the northern lights). It can be quiet in the North Woods. “The only sounds you hear in the morning are the loons,” notes Kim. For some, that’s exactly the type of alarm clock they want.
