For many years anyone hearing the name Milwaukee almost immediately thought of beers, breweries and German food; but not today. Modern, rejuvenated Milwaukee is much more than that.

I may be biased because I am from Milwaukee, but I love it. I can’t recommend visiting at least once. Stop by the Third Ward, head on down to the River Front, visit one of the many beaches, and check out surrounding suburbs/cities.

My experience in Milwaukee was brief. I traveled from Chicago on Amtrak's Hiawatha train to the airport for a flight home. My time spent in Milwaukee was pleasant and the natives I interacted with were nice.

If you have time, don't overlook the Mitchell Gallery of Flight Museum located within General Mitchell International Airport. The museum is free, open when the airport is open, and located outside the security checkpoints.

I loved taking a mini vacation here!

The only major negative that I wad was that public transportation was no where near as wonderful as it is in Chicago. That being said, it was still very easy to get around the city without having to rent a car!

I've always loved going to Milwaukee. We are just passing through on our way to Florida. Busy, yet beautiful and poised as a city.

Milwaukee is a fun town, with lots to do and great eats!
Most of the summer there are open fairs in the parks with good food and local crafts. It is easy to get around. walking downtown is simple, with several bridges and a great river walk. Be sure to get a photo with the Fonz!

Known as "Brew City" and the basis for the 70's sitcom Laverne & Shirley, this historic town has much to offer in the way of museums, live music, scenic riverwalk and plenty of shopping.

Milwaukee is a great town and an easy day trip from Chicago. Where Chicago is modern, having lost a lot in the Great Fire, Milwaukee still has that great stone architecture. Downtown is vibrant with lots to do. Get there at sunset to see the wings of the art museum close up.
