Looking out at the shores of Lake Michigan, Milwaukee is the biggest metropolis in the state renowned for its classic Wisconsin wonders that include breweries, 19th-century history, and the fascinating Harley-Davidson Headquarters. Get through the region by taking advantage of the city’s high-speed Milwaukee Streetcar, installed in the Fall of 2018 and offering the chance to get around the city, from the Wisconsin Center to the Historic Third Ward, in no time. Business travelers looking to stay close to General Mitchell International Airport should stay at a hotel on South 13th & College Avenue, home to a balance of free perks (airport shuttles & breakfast) as well as the quietude of College Heights. Savor each moment by reserving a ride to take it slow instead, whether that means getting a local personal driver to show you the sites or booking a private SUV for the whole family to come along.
Find something that makes the day worth exploring, choosing between natural landmarks along the shores of Lake Michigan like Bradford Beach and Lake Park, or go with an inner-city adventure at the Milwaukee Public Museum, home to a natural history museum, butterfly garden, and late 19th-century architecture. Hit the Riverwalk afterward for unique attractions along the Milwaukee River, home to ornate waterside venues that make up the city’s bustling Theater District as well as The Shops of Grand Avenue, all while keeping up with the awesome museums in East Town, from the evolution of man at Grohmann Museum to the world-class art & astounding 21s-century architecture at the Milwaukee Art Museum. End the evening with a late-night meal on Front Street, one of the most popular options being SafeHouse, a unique spy-themed gastropub especially popular as an after-club dinner spot.
