Attractions in Milwaukee
Known as the "City of Festivals," long, cold winters in Milwaukee give way to numerous outdoor events. The pinnacle of the summer festival season is Summerfest, a multi-day concert that draws close to a million people with some of the world's top touring musicians performing on 11 stages. Smaller scale events include a variety of ethnic festivals that celebrate the city's European heritage and more recent immigrants from all over the world.
Throughout the year, Harley Davidson and Miller Brewing Co.—two of Milwaukee's most famous businesses—offer tours. Several cultural destinations also draw big crowds, including the Milwaukee Art Museum, the historic 5th Ward District and the collection of Frank Lloyd Wright homes in Burnham Park.
A visit would not be complete during spring and summer months without a visit to Miller Park for Brewer's baseball game.
