Located on the western shore of Lake Michigan, Milwaukee––called “Cream City” because of its famous light-colored brickwork––offers historic structures, endless outdoor activities, and a lively arts and culture scene for hotel guests’ enjoyment.
Milwaukee visitors can see Broadway hits at Milwaukee’s First Stage; art lovers will definitely want to see both the Grohmann Museum and the Milwaukee Art Museum. And don’t miss the St. Peter’s of the Midwest, the Basilica of St. Josaphat, designed after the famous Vatican church.
Of course, there’s plenty of history in Milwaukee––and much of it has to do with beer! Ale aficionados can tour the home of American beer baron Captain Frederick Pabst at Pabst Mansion, following up with a trip to Miller’s Brewery. And only a short drive from Milwaukee, you can explore Old World Wisconsin, an outdoors living history museum depicting life on the 1800s Western frontier. There are plenty of shops, restaurants, and hotels in Milwaukee for your perusal, as well.
With so many breweries in town, the city has a lively nightlife; for a uniquely Milwaukee experience, see Lake Michigan from the deck of the Edelweiss cocktail cruise ship before heading back to your Milwaukee hotel room.
