Milwaukee Sights & Attractions
Milwaukee might not be a destination city for tourists but it is Wisconsin's largest city, there is quite a bit to see and do. The city is right on the waterfront with a river meandering through skyscrapers, similar to Chicago. With just an afternoon, the riverfront walk is a must to get a feel for the city. A River Sculptures display runs along the River Walk from Michigan Street north to Juneau Avenue. With more time, a stroll along the waterfront parks is worthwhile and accesses attractions like the Milwaukee Art Museum and the War Memorial Center. The art museum has 1,500 works of art while the War Memorial building is considered an architectural achievement. Another popular activity includes taking a Milwaukee River Cruise, running the river and the shoreline of Lake Michigan or a sailing trip further out into the lake. With more time, nearby tourist attractions include the Miller Brewery Tour, the Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Museum and Discovery World.
