Halsey is bringing their Love & Power Tour to Milwaukee on July 2nd for an evening of high-energy heartbreak. To mark the occasion, we created a perfect day in the Cream City using Halsey lyrics and song titles as a source of inspiration. Use this as a weekend itinerary to find your Heaven in Hiding or make your own! After all, we’re all Still Learning.
Stop 1 Experience a New American(o) at Vendetta Coffee. Located in Wauwatosa, no matter your order, the Italian-style café is sure to put some pep in your step to get your day started right.
Stop 2 There is a lighthouse in the middle of the city…Lake Drive to be exact. Explore the historic North Point Lighthouse with a docent-led tour of the more than 130-year-old landmark while climbing the 74-foot-tall tower.
Bonus: If you want to check out more than one nautical-based landmark, visit Lakeshore State Park’s Milwaukee Pierhead Light. An instantly recognizable symbol of Milwaukee, the lighthouse is still active and is considered the sister of the Kenosha North Pier Light.
Lunch Enjoy a Milwaukee Tradition with the Milwaukee Cheese Curd Pass. With more than 20 vendors, it’s an amazing opportunity to get your lunch and have your cheese curds too (at a discount).
Stop 3 Head straight for the castle. Check in at your favorite Milwaukee hotel and claim your kingdom for the weekend.
Stop 4 See Colors. Visit the Milwaukee Art Museum to see more than blue or grey. Enjoy all the hues and pigments in vivid complexity with your own eyes throughout the museum’s 40 galleries.
Stop 5 Fest with the best. Your ticket to any Amphitheater show gives you access to the entire Summerfest grounds, so explore the grounds! While walking around, take in the beauty of Lake Michigan, check out shows on the 11 stages, or do some shopping at one of the many vendors located throughout the grounds.
Dinner With dozens of vendors serving an eclectic blend of offerings from pizza cones to bacon bowls, fried buffalo chicken egg rolls to fresh fruit, there’ll be something to satiate everyone’s palate on the Summerfest grounds.
Showtime! It’s Now or Never! Make your way into the American Family Insurance Amphitheater to watch in awe as Halsey takes the stage and puts on a show you won’t soon forget!
Stop 6 After the show, make your way back to your hotel, or check out any the downtown area’s bars. Just try to make it back before 3am!
