A center for brewing, sports, pedestrians, and the arts, Milwaukee
, WI has something to offer for any traveler seeking an urban escape.
Situated along the bank of Lake Michigan and at the confluence of three rivers, Milwaukee’s newly updated Riverwalk includes many attractive new buildings and promenades from which to enjoy the views, not to mention a starting point for aquatic adventures. Whilst your out of your hotel in Milwaukee make sure to pay a visit to the Milwaukee Art Museum, which not only houses a top-notch collection of modern masters, but also features the stunning, large-scale Quadracci Pavilion designed by the famed Spanish architect and sculptor, Santiago Calatrava. Sample the Milwaukee of the past with a visit to the Third Ward or Lincoln Village, which not only charm with their shops and restaurants, but also provide a glimpse of the European ancestry that comprises this modern city.
If sporting events and beer are more your thing, then you’ve come to the right place. Cheer for the Brewers at Miller Park before tipping your hat to Miller, Molson, or one of the other large real brewers of the area. Tour the castle-like mansion of Captain Frederick Pabst to see just how profitable the beer business can be or, if the weather cooperates, enjoy the people-watching, live music, and waterfront lounging at the Henry Maier Festival Park. For indoor music, the Pabst Theater also offers consistently excellent programming.
