Milwaukee Bucket List

Attractions

There’s so much to do and see in Milwaukee, but if you can check off these ten classics, you’ve made a pretty good start.

  1. Take a brewery tour. Whether it’s at brewing giant MillerCoors or one of the city’s newest craft breweries, don’t leave Brew City without seeing how the product that “made us famous” gets made.
  2. Visit the Milwaukee Art Museum. Designed by Santiago Calatrava, this striking modern building features a “wing-like” sunscreen with the span of a Boeing 747. Watch the wings open in the morning, “flap” at noon, and close in the evening (weather permitting).
  3. Get out on the water. From boat cruises to beaches, there’s plenty of ways to take advantage of Lake Michigan and the Milwaukee, Menomonee, and Kinnickinnic Rivers.
  4. Get a scoop of frozen custard. Milwaukee is home to more frozen custard stands per capita than anywhere else in the world, earning the title of unofficial world capital of frozen custard. Creamier and richer than ice cream, this is the summer dessert of choice for locals.
  5. Snack on some cheese curds. Deep fried or fresh and squeaky, this a must-have appetizer while you’re in town.
  6. Go to a festival. Milwaukee’s known as the City of Festivals for a reason, and the best way to get to know the city is to celebrate with us.
  7. Try your luck at Potawatomi Hotel & Casino, where gaming, dining, and entertainment come together under one roof.
  8. Snap a selfie with the Bronze Fonz. This life-size statue of Henry Winkler’s Happy Days character is located on the Milwaukee RiverWalk just off of Wells Street.
  9. Learn about one of America’s greatest companies at the Harley-Davidson Museum. Harley-Davidson is part of the fabric of Milwaukee, and at the museum you can follow its history from the very first Harley to the most creative custom bikes.
  10. Explore the local foods and products at the Milwaukee Public Market. Located in the Historic Third Ward neighborhood, you’ll find 20 vendors in the market selling artisan foods, chocolates, seafood, and more.
