Conde Nast Traveler: 6 U.S. Cities to Watch in 2017
“[Milwaukee’s] Its ecologically diverse location makes it a hotbed of locavore cuisine, and a spate of award-winning restaurants have helped the city shed its beer-and-cheese reputation: Pay a visit to restaurants Ardent, Wolf Peach, Odd Duck, and the Vanguard to see what we mean.”
Tasty Tosa: Milwaukee suburb stocked with worthy European cuisine
"Milwaukee has no shortage of great places to eat. The same can be said of its lesser-known western suburb of Wauwatosa, where you can find tasty German, Benelux, Italian and French fare at a quartet of restaurants less than a block from one another."
Things to do in Milwaukee
"Milwaukee may be a "small" city, but it has a lot to offer in the way of tourist attractions. The nation's "Beer City" is brimming with great brewery tours, but there are also opportunities to get out on the water, see great works of art, listen to music and more. I was able to check out many of these attractions during my weeklong tour of Milwaukee, and I am pleased to report on their wheelchair accessibility here."

A Tale of Two Milwaukee Museums
"Before my first trip to Milwaukee this summer, I had only a few references to help me get a handle on what makes the city tick. There was (and still is) beer, of course, a legacy of one of this country’s strongest German heritages. And there were the iconic TV comedies, “Happy Days” (check out the bronze statue of the Fonz on the walkway alongside the Milwaukee River) and its spinoff “Laverne and Shirley.”
Long Weekend in Milwaukee
"Milwaukee may be best known as the place of beer, brats, and cheese, but make no mistake, Wisconsin’s largest city is chock-full of other attractions, too, from a stunning lakefront and sprawling parks, to the world’s only Harley-Davidson museum and a moveable art museum. While the city draws crowds year-round—its tourism traffic brings in more than $5 billion annually—summer and its surplus of festivals deem it the ultimate season for a long weekend."
