Facts About Milwaukee

MilwaukeeLocated on the shore of Lake Michigan near the southern end of Wisconsin, Milwaukee is a thriving city that will delight any visitor. From museums to festivals, and from brewery tours to ball games, Milwaukee has it all.

Milwaukee's lakefront has undergone a rebirth in the last decade, and beautiful new museums hug the shoreline. Discovery World is a first-class science museum that offers hands-on opportunities to understand everything from music to molecules. Just a short walk away is the Milwaukee Art Museum with its stunning brise soleil designed by Calatrava. Only a minute away from there is the Betty Brinn Children's Museum, where kids can learn while having a ball.

While Milwaukee is fun in any season of the year, it is in summer when the city really puts on its best party face. Festivals abound, with different ethnic groups throwing parties all summer long. German Fest, Festa Italiana, Irish Fest and many other ethnic festivals give visitors a chance to hear the music and taste the food of that culture. The festivals are held on the Summerfest grounds, where Summerfest, the biggest music festival of the year, kicks off the summer. The Milwaukee Zoo gets in on the festival action as well, offering its Milwaukee a la Carte food extravaganza each August.

Of course, no visit to Milwaukee would be complete without a brewery tour. The granddaddy of all breweries is Miller Brewery. A sparkling new visitors' center greets guests, and tours through the entire complex always end with a chance to sit down in the cozy beer garden and sample some new brews. Root beer is always available for those who prefer their beverages to be non-alcoholic. Complete the beer experience with a visit to the historic Pabst Mansion and see what life was like when the beer barons ruled the city.

Sports fans will enjoy an outing to Miller Park to watch the Brewers in action. Lucky fans will get to see Bernie Brewer slide down a giant slide into a huge stein of beer every time the Brewers hit a home run. The stadium, with its retractable dome, is a perfect place to bring the family, rain or shine.

Visitors looking for some more sophisticated entertainment will enjoy Milwaukee's Historic Third Ward with its fine restaurants and trendy theaters. Take a walk along the riverfront and enjoy downtown Milwaukee's vibrant nightlife.

Milwaukee is a friendly city and welcomes visitors with open arms. Affordable and convenient, it is the perfect place for families, couples or friends to come for a getaway weekend. Come enjoy the true "gemutlichkeit" of Milwaukee. It's a wonderful place to be!
