With love from the Cream City!

Even though this travel platform has a large international focus, I will always be a Black girl from the northside of Milwaukee. Milwaukee is home. It’s a tourist destination that is often overlooked in the Midwest. I did a post about it here a few years ago, but it’s definitely time for an update. And what better way to honor my city than to highlight Milwaukee entrepreneurship?

To show my hometown some love, here is a list of Milwaukee Black businesses to support. This list is crowd-sourced by friends, family, and my social media platforms. I wanted to include places the people I know patron often. Therefore, I haven’t patronized every business personally. However, it’s for us, by us so be sure to support where you can. Keep reading to learn more about the Milwaukee Black businesses scene.
