Wisconsin’s largest city, urban-easy Milwaukee is a great city on a Great Lake! While still celebrating our beer brewing heritage, the city now has a powerhouse arts scene, big-city attractions, revitalized historic districts, numerous James Beard-nominated chefs and a vibrant farm-to-table culinary scene.
This combination of cherished tradition and modern attitude is reflected in our architecture and in a variety of walk-around, character-filled neighborhoods. Known as the “City of Festivals,” Milwaukee is home to thirty summer festivals, including Summerfest, the world’s largest music festival which spans 11 days, 11 stages and routinely welcomes more than 800,000 music fans to town. Explore one-of-a-kind attractions like the Milwaukee Art Museum, Miller Park, the world’s only Harley-Davidson Museum and Potawatomi Hotel & Casino and experience our brewing heritage on brewery tours offered by MillerCoors and local microbreweries like Lakefront Brewery, Milwaukee Brewing Company and Sprecher (also a great option for kids thanks to their world-class craft sodas!). Excursion boats and kayaks beckon one to the Milwaukee River and Lake Michigan, getting you out on the water.
