Located on the scenic shore of Lake Michigan, Milwaukee offers an exceptional blend of stunning natural beauty, big city arts and entertainment and Midwest charm. A downtown RiverWalk connects German heritage-inspired Old World Third Street to the Historic Third Ward with its shops and art galleries and Milwaukee Public Market. A city of colorful, walk-around neighborhoods, acclaimed culinary scene and entrepreneurial spirit, where exciting attractions like the world’s only Harley-Davidson Museum and Milwaukee Art Museum meet brewery tours, excursion boats, professional sports and summer-long schedule of lakefront festivals. You’ll find all this and more on tap in Milwaukee.

The greater Milwaukee area is within an 8-hour drive of 1/3 of the U.S. population.
