3. FAMILY FRIENDLY
Milwaukee is an easy lakefront city that’s great for families, with tons of family-friendly attractions and events year round to keep athletes and their families entertained. It’s easy to explore on foot; many of the city’s best attractions are easily accessible in our walkable downtown. Summer festivals and attractions like interactive museums, indoor sports facilities, and kid-friendly performances help families to enjoy all the city has to offer.
4. CONVENTION CENTER
Milwaukee’s convention complex includes the Wisconsin Center, one of the country’s most distinctive convention centers, as well as the 12,700-seat UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena, the home of the UWM Panthers, the Milwaukee Admirals, the Milwaukee Wave, and the Brewcity Bruisers.
One of the nation’s top three airports in user friendliness is located just eight miles from downtown, with plenty of shuttles, taxis, limousine services, and coach transports to get groups back and forth. An Amtrak station is conveniently located near the terminal. Milwaukee’s Intermodal Station, with Amtrak and Greyhound Bus facilities, is mere blocks from the Convention Center Campus. Interstates 94 and 43 flow into and out of the city for quick freeway access throughout downtown and the outlying areas. Once you’ve settled in, you’ll discover plenty of taxis, a great public transportation system, and a brand new streetcar (opening fall 2018) that make getting around town a breeze.
