I was living in Elgin, IL (a small town in the outskirts of Chicago) when my dad got a job offer in Milwaukee- I was absolutely ecstatic since that very same summer I had visited the cute little city for the first time. It was love at first sight!
How is the weather?
There are so many options here! We have marvelous
The Milwaukee Art Museum, of course! It is one of the most stunning buildings I have ever seen. Another must-see place is the Milwaukee Public Market, it always makes me feel as if I've been transported to another place. The busy movement of people buying the best wines and the fresh fish is quite exhilarating. There is also the cutest little lighthouse I have ever seen, now that's a must-see. Now, my all time favorite thing to do is go to the marina. There you can catch a sailboat ride around the Lake Michigan coast and afterward catch a delicious dinner (or lunch) at the delicious seafood restaurant Harbor House.
There are too many reasons why I love this place. So I am just going to list out a few...1. I love how even though it is a big city nature is still absolutely everywhere (Very green city indeed).2. I love all the cute riverside and lakefront lofts and condos.3. I love how I never get tired of it, no matter how many times I've walked up and down the very same streets.4. I love ice skating in the free rink which happens to be in the very center of the city AND also right next to a Starbucks.5. I love how you can hear Christmas music in every street which makes you want to slow dance right there and then.6. I love how I always discover a new favorite place every time I go.7. ... and I love that I can call it home with a smile
Make sure that when you come, you are ready to spend at least a week. After all, there are so many amazing experiences waiting for you here! Whether you are after the nightlife, architecture, food, shopping, or water sports (wind surfing and sailing is pretty big here)Milwaukee has exactly what you are looking for.
Thank you Mariel for showing us around Milwaukee! I've always heard it is a great city - from my husband especially.
