I have lived in Milwaukee for the past few years while attending college. I love it because it still has a city feel but isn’t as big and confusing as, say, Chicago or New York. Summer is the best time to visit, winter gets a little long. Summerfest is a definite must if visiting around the end of June. There are also many other brewery tours besides Miller. My favorite is the Lakefront Brewery Tour. It’s a little brewery located on the Milwaukee River. Only $6 for 4 cups of beer and a souvenir glass! Milwaukee Art Museum is stunning. Make sure you go on a nice day so the wings are up (Calatrava designed is to look like a bird complete with wings)!
how do you delete? I need the last paragraph deleted on an accidental copy/paste.
Milwaukee isn’t as exciting as say Chicago nor as beautiful as Minneapolis in terms of the Midwestern states, but there is a certain atmosphere that attracts many visitors.
Summerfest, also known as the “World’s Largest Music Festival” has a nightly lineup of some of America’s best artists. Also not to be missed is the Milwaukee Art Museum that has a design similar to the Sydney Opera house.
I couldn’t believe I randomly came across this article! This city is practically in my own backyard. Madison is a wonderful mid-sized city with possibly the most beautiful capitol building in the United States.
