Birthplace of Harley Davidson, the home of Laverne and Shirley (who remembers that?) and Miller Beer, Milwaukee cuddles up to the shore of Lake Michigan. This advantageous location means visitors can not only enjoy urban pursuits but outdoor activities are but a short way off. Putting the leisure playground of the lake and its shores aside, let’s take a look at some of the top attractions of Milwaukee.
1. Must-see Milwaukee Art Museum
When you draw up your list of things to see in Milwaukee be sure to include the Milwaukee Art Museum, a fabulous building with 9-feet tall vaulted glass ceilings, a marble facade and gleaming white suspension bridge that affords visitors spectacular lake views as they climb four floors of art displays. Even people only mildly interested in art will love this museum, which showcases more than 20,000 pieces of art. Although predominantly known for its wonderful pieces of American Art, the museum also exhibits paintings from the 15th century and artifacts from antiquity.
