Not So Old Milwaukee

Home to high art like the architecturally breathtaking Quadracci Pavilion and slightly less rarefied attractions like the Harley-Davidson Museum, Milwaukee makes an attractive tourist destination even before considering the world-spanning cuisine.

If your first thought when you hear “Milwaukee” is “beer,” you’re not alone. Beer is big, but the city is so much more. It is heritage and Harleys, eats and arts, waterfront and a wonderful time.

For visitors to Milwaukee the city offers a variety of great museums, lots of outdoor activities, historic homes, baseball, beer and nightlife ranging from the Pedal Tavern, a bicycle-powered party vehicle for pub crawling, to plays and concerts and even a spy-themed nightspot, the Safe House. To get in, you have to know the password.
