Milwaukee, WI


Milwaukee is the biggest city in Wisconsin and sits along the southwestern shore of Lake Michigan. While it’s famous for its brewing traditions, with famous beer giants like Pabst and Miller based here, there's much more to do than enjoy a cold one. Milwaukee is a town that knows how to have fun, with a thriving music and art scene and the host of dozens of festivals every year. Summerfest is the biggest of all, spanning three weekends and boasting hundreds of acts at Henry Maier Festival Park on the lakefront. The East Downtown area slings the lake, and the Milwaukee River is the place to be when the sun is out, with visitors and locals enjoying days at the beaches, browsing art galleries, picnics in the parks, dining and entertainment.
