Milwaukee

Located on the shores of Lake Michigan, Milwaukee is perhaps best known for its famous breweries and the Major League Brewers, but there’s more to the city than beer and baseball. Milwaukee is rich in historical and cultural attractions, making it the perfect place for a weekend of exploring. Check out the newly expanded Milwaukee Art Museum or the Mitchell Park Horticultural Society, which hosts an annual show of the same flora and fauna seen in Georgia O’Keefe’s paintings. Those interested in the city’s history can visit the grand Pabst Mansion, former home of one of the city’s famous beer barons, or the Milwaukee Public Museum, to see what life was like in Old Milwaukee. If the kids are along, don’t miss the Milwaukee County Zoo or the Betty Brinn Children’s Museum. Of course a trip to the “Genuine American City” would not be complete without a tour of the Miller Brewing Company and a Brewers game at Miller Park.
