Milwaukee

Share With Friends

Wisconsin’s largest city is true to its roots from the Harley-Davidson Museum to MillerCoors Brewery tours. Must-see neighborhoods filled with character include Old World Third Street, offering a glimpse into Milwaukee’s early German heritage, and Brady Street, a bohemian strand of boutiques and coffee shops.  
 
The Historic Third Ward, a Midwestern version of New York’s trendy SoHo, is a shopper’s dream and home to the Milwaukee Public Market, voted one of America’s best. Nicknamed the “City of Festivals,” Milwaukee’s 75-acre waterfront festival park hosts a summer-long schedule of celebrations including the world's largest music festival, Summerfest, and more than a dozen major ethnic fests.
 
Steps from the city you’ll find a recreational paradise that includes award-winning parks, nature centers and miles of bike trails and picture-perfect Lake Michigan shoreline. It’s one of the few places in America where you can kayak through the cityscape. Milwaukee is home to the state’s largest art museum and natural history museum. Its maritime heritage comes alive at Discovery World’s aquariums and exhibits and in the 360-degree view from the top of Northpoint Lighthouse.
 
Whether your perfect vacation includes a stop at Wisconsin’s first distillery since prohibition, a leisurely stroll along one of America’s best river walks, or a memorable meal prepared by a James Beard Award-winning chef, Milwaukee makes it easy. And that makes one great getaway.
