“What are things to do in Milwaukee?” is a popular question I get asked as a Milwaukee native. Though Wisconsin is known for its winters, beer, and baseball, many assume we are always freezing or that we live on farms. For Milwaukeeans in the city, and the surrounding areas, we enjoy summers around the city.
But even as someone born and raised on the north side, I had little knowledge of what tourists do in Milwaukee. After summer adventures from the south side to downtown and back, I have a better idea. Let me show why Milwaukee should be on your summer U.S. city list.
