Miller Park#2 in Best Things To Do in Milwaukee
Miller Park, which sits about 3 miles west of the Harley-Davidson Museum and 5 miles southwest of downtown, is home to Major League Baseball's Milwaukee Brewers. Although the Brewers may not have the greatest game record, they are certainly beloved by their fans. And whether you're a long-time fan or a first-time spectator, you'll enjoy taking in a game beneath the stadium's retractable roof, which is the only fan-shaped convertible roof in North America. (Thanks to this unique roof, you'll never have to worry about inclement weather, which is a huge perk to many visitors.)
Inside the stadium, visitors will find ATMs, restrooms, phone charging stations, merchandise stalls and food vendors scattered throughout the complex. There are also several all-inclusive areas for larger parties and celebrations during Brewers games, including the luxurious Gehl Club and right field's Dew Deck — which boasts its own 25-foot rock wall.
But if you're not into baseball, no worries. This stadium also hosts tons of special events, such as the Brewers Mini-Marathon, the Field of Sweet Dreams camping party and an array of concerts. Stadium tours, which start at $12 for adults and $8 for kids 12 and younger, are also offered on days when there are no scheduled events or home games.
Outside of tours, there are no standard rates for games and events. However, many previous visitors said ticket prices here are reasonable. And for parking, options start at $12 to $15 depending on the day, but if you buy in advance you'll pay just $11 per vehicle.

#1 Lakefront Brewery
Considered by several former visitors as one of the best brewery tours in Milwaukee thanks to its tasty brews and wildly entertaining tour guides, Lakefront Brewery's tours are also one of the best deals around. For just $10, tourgoers can see much of the brewery, enjoy four 6-ounce samples of beer and take home a souvenir pint glass with a beer coupon (good for a free beer at one of several area eateries).
While the brewery's offerings change throughout the year, some previous brews featured include a pumpkin lager, a barley wine, an organic chocolate stout and an India pale ale. And for a true taste of Wisconsin, previous travelers recommend eating at the on-site beer hall after your tour to savor some regional delicacies like cheese curds, Bavarian-style pretzels and Usinger brats. The Friday fish fry is especially popular with locals and tourists, thanks to its pairing of delicious brews and fresh fish with a live polka band.
