➞ WHEN NATIONAL MEDIA has been asked to describe Milwaukee, the typical response is that it is a hidden gem.
When I am with my peers, who represent destinations across the globe, I can say with full conﬁdence that Milwaukee is a city that consistently punches above its weight. Our professional athletes, such as Giannis Antetokounmpo or Christian Yelich happen to be league MVPs, but they are also a part of the fabric of our community. Our chefs bring ﬂavors from around the world and are recognized annually at the James Beard awards, and the culinary and cocktail scene is often lauded by publications. Our local shopping was recently described by U.S. News & World Report as “better than the sleek storefronts along Chicago’s Magniﬁcent Mile any day.”And we can't forget about our thriving arts and culture scene - from our world-renowned museums to our concert venues, o�-Broadway shows, and performing and visual arts, like Sculpture Milwaukee. There is something to do for everyone, and at a�ordable prices.
While that may be nice to hear, when Esquire, Vogue, U.S. News and World Report, and more all describe us as one of the best cities year after year, isn't the secret already out? I think that Milwaukee is a place where world-class amenities meet incredible natural assets and our warm hospitality is unmatched across the globe. We are a city that is Powered by our People.
Story Struggleof ➞ America’s Black Holocaust Museum (401 W. North Ave.) was founded in 1984 by the only known survivor of a lynching, Dr. James Cameron. Following the Great Recession and Dr. Cameron’s death, the museum’s doors closed, and its exhibits moved primarily online. Now the museum doors are open once again to provide racial understanding, reconciliation, and healing. Let’s explore the make-up of this Bronzeville neighborhood treasure.
THE GATHERING PLACE As you enter the museum, a gathering space emerges capable of hosting events as well as talks with museum griots, named for the West African tradition of storytellers.

VISITMILWAUKEE.ORG | 49 Welcome to America’s Fresh Coast! Located at the conﬂuence of three rivers ﬂowing into Lake Michigan, Milwaukee is truly a water city with plenty of ways for visitors to get their feet wet. URBAN ADVENTURE threeMilwaukee'sExploreriversbykayak
The Milwaukee, Menomonee and Kinnickinnic Rivers offer more watery getaways with the city’s three rivers perfect for boat cruises, kayaking, and paddle boarding. Allow resident waterway experts like Brew City Kayak (820 S. Water St.), Milwaukee Kayak Company (318 S. Water St.), and Adventure Milwaukee (600 S. Water St.) to to guide your Milwaukee River kayaking trips. In fact, the Milwaukee County Historical Society (910 N. MLK Dr.) teams up with local kayakers for guided historic river excursions. Or stroll riverside through three historic neighborhoods on The Milwaukee RiverWalk Back on dry land, Milwaukee is home to 1,400 acres of beaches and parkland adjacent to the water. Milwaukee County Parks (county.milwaukee.gov/EN/Parks) beaches along Lake Michigan — such as Bradford Beach and Warnimont Park Beach — are excellent for sunbathing, swimming, and surfing. Gear up at Wheel Fun Bike Rentals (1500 N. Lincoln Memorial Dr.), then hit the trails of Lakeshore State Park (500 N. Harbor Dr.), Wisconsin’s only urban state park. Head north on Lincoln Memorial Drive along Lake Michigan’s shores to fly a kite with Gift of Wings (1300 N. Lincoln Memorial Dr.) at Veterans Park or ride in swan boats around the park’s nearby lagoon. Time for a beverage? O.K., but you have to work for it. The Milwaukee Paddle Tavern (113 E. Juneau Ave.) is a floating pub powered by your group pedaling as they imbibe. For waterside eateries try Harbor House's seafood (550 N. Harbor Dr.), Screaming Tuna's sushi (106 W.

theCapitalFreshwaterofWorld ➞ Milwaukeeans don’t just have fun on the water. We also research and innovate with it. In 2009, visionaries and business leaders from Milwaukee’s numerous water-based industries collaborated to establish The Water Council (247 W. Freshwater Way). The same year, the UW-Milwaukee School of Freshwater Sciences became the nation’s first graduate school dedicated solely to the study of freshwater. In 2013, the council opened the Global Water Center to house water-related research facilities and accelerator space for emerging water-related companies. The industrial building’s renovation soon became a catalyst for development of the nearby Reed Street Yards. Focused on the international water industry, this mixeduse urban site is an education, research, and technology zone. And Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewer District is nationally renowned for its wastewater treatment, flood management, and green infrastructure.
Discovery World (500 N. Harbor Dr.) is Milwaukee’s science and technology museum located right along the lakefront. Explore this facility where you can change the weather in its interactive Great Lakes exhibit or get up close and personal with aquatic life at the Reiman Aquarium. After exploring Discovery World indoors, head outdoors aboard its S/V Denis Sullivan vessel. The 137-foot replica of a 19th century Great Lakes schooner has several sailing options with public sails, private charters, and onboard educational programs. Also on the lakefront is the “flying” Milwaukee Art Museum (700 N. Art Museum Dr.). The art museum’s Santiago Calatrava-designed “wings” open when the museum opens, close when the museum closes, and flap at noon - when weather permits. Underneath those wings is a rich collection of 30,000 works of art as well as outdoor spaces to engage with the surrounding natural beauty.Literally attached to the art museum is the Milwaukee County War Memorial Center (750 N. Lincoln Memorial Dr.) looking out over Lake Michigan. This Milwaukee landmark was designed by renowned architect Eero Saarinen and dedicated on Veterans Day 1957. Today, you can wander the indoor and outdoor halls of military history with truly stunning lake views all around you. Further up on the North Shore is Schlitz Audubon Nature Center (1111 E. Brown Deer Rd., Bayside). The 185acre nature center provides forests, ponds, prairies, and trails along Lake Michigan's shoreline. And a robust raptor program brings you face-toface with 15 birds of prey.

BY AIR MILWAUKEE INTERNATIONALMITCHELL AIRPORT (MKE) Located just 15 minutes from downtown, Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport provides easy, convenient service for flights in and out of Milwaukee. Get nonstop service from more than 30 cities, including Las Vegas, Los Angeles, New York, Washington, D.C., and Orlando. In 2020, the airport underwent an exciting retail and dining update, bringing more options than ever to the terminal. Getting from the airport to where you need to go is easy thanks to eight onpremises auto rental agencies, plus plenty of shuttles, taxis, limousine services, and coach transports. Uber and Lyft drop-off and pick-up service is available at the airport. An Amtrak station is also conveniently located near the terminal, with a free shuttle bus between the airport and the station.
BY WATER PORT MILWAUKEE Milwaukee’s port on the coast of Lake Michigan is your port of call whether you’re coming by ferry or by cruise ship. The Lake Express Ferry is a stateof-the-art auto/passenger ferry linking Milwaukee with Muskegon, Michigan. The 2 1/2 hour trip offers passengers a faster and more direct route than driving south around Lake Michigan through the Chicago area. Milwaukee is also happy to welcome Great Lakes cruises at two passenger docks, Pier Wisconsin and the South Shore Cruise Dock. Station
The city’s train and bus station is located at the southern edge of downtown, just blocks from the Wisconsin Center. The Milwaukee Intermodal Station features 14 total Amtrak departures daily between downtown Chicago and Milwaukee and daily direct departures to and from Minneapolis/St. Paul. It is also the main hub for intercity bus travel, with service from Greyhound, Badger Bus, MegaBus, and more. Located just across the street from the station is the start and end station for Milwaukee’s streetcar, The Hop, which loops through downtown. There is also a Bublr Bike bikeshare station right outside.

96 | MILWAUKEE VISITORS GUIDE 2022 Curd is the Word ➞ If you’ve never been to Milwaukee, you may not know what to expect when you see “cheese curds” on the menu at the local watering hole — and you have no idea what you’re missing! Try a cheesy, gooey, salty basket at Lakefront Brewery's (1872 N. Commerce St.) German-style beer hall. These deep-fried curds are dipped in a beer batter from Lakefront’s own Eastside Dark, a Bavarian dark lager. Or try the fresh, squeaky version at Clock Shadow Creamery (138 W. Bruce St.). Stop in on Wednesday or Friday morning — that’s when they make the curds! LAST LOOK
