Vote to make this city a priority

Overview

Milwaukee stays true to its German, working class roots as the beer flows freely in this midwestern metropolis. In fact, at one point in time, Milwaukee produced more beer than any other city in the world. Today, “The Brew City” still boasts the Miller-Coors Brewing Company, along with a handful of local, craft breweries.

That said, Milwaukee has taken on another nickname as well: “The City of Festivals.” Depending on when you visit, you can catch everything from Summerfest (currently the “World’s Biggest Music Festival”, hosting 700+ bands along the city’s lakefront) to the Wisconsin State Fair. If you’re not in town for a specific event, get out and explore because Milwaukee’s architecture is diverse and easy on the eyes. Wander through rows of old, peaked victorian homes and into the gorgeous Basilica of St. Josaphat, before checking out the stunning, thin futuristic curves of the Milwaukee Art Museum, perched on the lakefront. Stop by the Third Ward neighborhood to grab a bite to eat and admire its artsy, edgy austere. Or ride a bike along the calm, waterfront in Bay View. If timing allows, be sure to catch a ballgame. Life doesn’t get much better than bratwurst, beers and baseball, though even if you’re not the biggest fan, the mascot sausages racing around the bases is worth the price of admission.
