Best Things To Do in Milwaukee

In Milwaukee, you'll find your usual assortment of art museums (Milwaukee Art Museum), historic homes (Pabst Mansion) and sports venues (Miller Park). You'll also find interesting areas to meander through like the Victorian-Italianate Brady Street and the Historic Third Ward. And for those into craft beer (and who isn't these days?), the Lakefront Brewery is an excellent way to taste some of Milwaukee's best. And we couldn't forget the Harley-Davidson Museum. It shows, among other things, many bikes from the motorcycle purveyor's history.
