Summer is the perfect time to visit The Iron Horse Hotel. The hotel’s patio, The Yard (open May to August), is decked out with enough features – comfortable sectionals, an outdoor cocktail bar (constructed from the hotel’s old fire doors), overhead shades made from sails and live music – to keep guests returning throughout their stay. Moreover, it’s the time of year when locals leave behind their inclement-weather cocoon and celebrate a Milwaukee summer with one festival after another, beginning with the Summerfest in late June. Lakefront fireworks happen during many festival weekends and are visible to guests who just step outside the hotel entrance.
