Lunch Break

Head to the Milwaukee Public Market to enjoy one of Milwaukee’s most popular lunch spots. An easy walk and an even easier Bublr Bikes ride from the convention center, the market is home to nearly 20 local vendors. Whether you’re craving sushi, salads, tacos, falafel, seafood, or fresh baked bread, you’ll find it and much more at the market.

Ranked as one of America's best public markets, you'll find 20 specialty vendors selling prepared food, grocery, and gifts.

Free Evening

Start off the night with a meal from one of Milwaukee’s 200 downtown restaurants. In the summer, almost every evening features a free outdoor concert series, so stop by to enjoy the weather, music, and snacks from local vendors. In the fall, a free evening is the perfect time to check out Milwaukee’s vibrant arts scene.


You can’t go wrong choosing one or two of Milwaukee’s most popular attractions to fill this day. Art lovers can’t miss the stunning Milwaukee Art Museum, while history buffs might enjoy a visit to the Milwaukee Public Museum or the Pabst Mansion. Anyone with a wild spirit will love exploring the world’s only Harley-Davidson Museum, and the Milwaukee County Zoo is an especially great destination if your spouse or family will be joining you. And, of course, no visit to Milwaukee would be complete without a brewery tour.
