Mix and match this fun itinerary for the perfect outdoor adventure for your family - and don't forget to star your favorites to save them to your trip for later.
Morning on the Shore
Start your day at Colectivo Lakefront - built inside the historic Milwaukee River Flushing Station, this unique cafe serves locally roasted coffee as well as breakfast sandwiches, pastries, soups, and more made from scratch. Kids will love fresh muffins and smoothies, and the expansive outdoor patio has beautiful views of the lake.
After breakfast, take some time to enjoy Milwaukee's lakefront. In Veterans Park, you'll find lots of family-friendly recreational rentals like bikes, surreys, paddleboats, segways, and more at Wheel Fun Rentals. Get the kids some wheels (or pile the whole family into a triple surrey) and use the paved multi-use trails to zip around the lakefront. Head south to check out lakefront museums like the Milwaukee Art Museum and Discovery World, or head north to find Bradford Beach, one of the nation's top urban beaches and a major summer hotspot for all ages.
