Milwaukee has been a leader in the craft beer and brewing industry since the 19th century. This tradition continues today, with both major beer companies — like Miller — and clusters of lively, independent gastropubs contributing to the beer lover’s paradise. Lakefront Brewery, one of the premiere producers of organic and gluten-free beer, presents waterfront views, in contrast to the landlocked, cobblestone locale of the Historic Pabst Brewery. This versatility transcends across Milwaukee’s many breweries, making for an eclectic tour.

Milwaukee derives much of its charm from its natural, lakeshore surroundings. The Milwaukee RiverWalk District, the city’s main pedestrian walkway, combines these gorgeous views with quirky, local commerce. The North Point Lighthouse is an iconic staple of Milwaukee architecture and sightseeing, added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1984. Visitors can oversee a grand, panoramic expanse, as well as explore a maritime museum. Lake Park, Boerner Botanical Gardens, Mequon Nature Preserve, and many other wildlife havens ensure nature enthusiasts plenty to explore. The city has a notable, 185-acre Audubon Nature Center that strives to provide meaningful interaction with the environment.

Additionally, the city flaunts a renowned museum scene. The Milwaukee Art museum contains 31,000 works, with a focus on German Expressionism, Haitian art, and American art. Milwaukee Public Museum enriches visitors’ historical knowledge, displaying the largest-known dinosaur skull, and permanent exhibitions on Africa, Asia, Europe, the Arctic, Middle America, and the Costa Rican Rainforest. Among the city’s more off-the-wall treasures are the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum, the Wisconsin Museum of Quilts and Fiber Arts, and the Harley-Davidson Museum.
