Located on the shores of Lake Michigan, Milwaukee is perhaps best known for its famous breweries, but it is also rich in historical and cultural attractions, making it the perfect place for a weekend of exploring.

Take a stroll along the famous Riverfront, this continuous, 3-mile pedestrian walkway stretches through the entirety of Milwaukee’s vibrant downtown into its Historic Third Ward district. Along the way, make sure you pay a visit to the Bronze Fonz (a statue commemorating Fonzie of Happy Days fame).

Milwaukee, known as the city of Festivals. Summerfest is officially recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records as the largest music festival in the world.

Take a cruise on Lake Michigan or the Milwaukee River or head to Third Ward, a restored warehouse district that’s now a National Historic Landmark featuring terrific dining, a lively nightlife scene, art galleries, and antique shops. Other popular attractions include the outstanding Milwaukee County Zoo, the Midwest Express Center, and the Milwaukee Public Museum.

Today, the city is home to only one major brewery, a little company called Miller. However, the Milwaukee Ale House and the Water Street Brewery are two of the prominent places where you can go to sample craft beers from around the country.

Old World Third Street boasts some of the best and most authentic (and often most upscale) German and Mediterranean restaurants in the region, while South Side and the Fifth Ward offer high quality but budget Mexican and Latin American cuisine. Milwaukee Street is the main drag for trendy dining options, and it sports a lively nightlife.
