Milwaukee and its metro neighbors are a cosmopolitan and inspiring destination, offering world-class music, dining and shopping. Here you’ll find some of the state’s finest art museums, natural science and history museums and zoos. Unlike many cities, though, our beaches, sportfishing, sailing and biking are all part of the urban mix. Enjoy a summer season of lakeshore festivals, complemented by a winter of spectacular performing arts. For added flavor, Lake Geneva, along Wisconsin's southern border, showcases the summer mansions of wealthy Chicagoans.
