Milwaukee is notoriously thought of as a city inundated with rock music, beer and Harley production but there is much more to The City of Festivals. The largest city in Wisconsin and located on the west shore of Lake Michigan, Milwaukee has a revived downtown area alongside the Milwaukee Art Museum with new skyscrapers, luxury housing, fine dining and upscale nightlife establishments. Milwaukee also hosts the world's largest music festival, Summerfest, and has attractions that display the cultural history of the great city. Marquette University brings in a young crowd to enjoy the city's character and shifts the focus from Hogs and Miller Draft to business enterprises in the Fortune 500.
Milwaukee is an up and coming contender city for fine cuisine with various worldly influences. Dining establishments
offer a range of fine steakhouses like Carnevor
in downtown Milwaukee to hole-in-the-wall local favorites. Milwaukee's historic French and Germanic roots are prominent in the plentiful French bistros and restaurants. Varied dining in Milwaukee is available to suit every budget and palate.
Host to the world's largest music festival, Summerfest, as well as various ethnic and cultural events, Milwaukee has earned its "City of Festivals" title. Visitors can explore the blend of cultures through food, entertainment and assorted seasonal events throughout the year. Although there are several events that happen only once per year, attractions like the Milwaukee Art Museum are open year-round for visitors and locals. Family friendly fun is also available throughout the city with attractions like the Betty Brinn Children's Museum and the Milwaukee County Zoo.
A diverse city allows for an equally diverse nightlife and a night in Milwaukee proves the city is no exception. Everything from brewpubs and sports bars to dance clubs and swanky lounges dominant the scene at night. Downtown bars in the revived loft area have a certain chic that the hip bars in Riverwest can only dream of and there are various establishments that offer amazing views of the water. The Milwaukee nightlife
has something for everyone in the city.
