When sharing where I grew up and live, most people recognize the reference to Milwaukee. Luckily, we have much to be thankful for and many memories exist in various locations around the city.
If you have kids, don't miss visiting the Milwaukee County Zoo. The zoo pass pays for itself with visits throughout the years. The boys still talk about the concerts we saw and variety of food we ate during Zoo Ala Carte in August. They loved trick-or-treating during Halloween or bundling up for a walk to see the animals and Christmas lights around the zoo. Let's not forget the class offerings for learning about different animals, making crafts, and enjoying behind the scenes at the zoo.
Does anyone remember Happy Days or Laverne and Shirley? These TV shows were based on people growing up in Milwaukee while employed at the fictitious Shotz Brewery Company. What comes to mind when thinking about Milwaukee… breweries and motorcycles?! Here are few of the tours that come well recommended by family and friends: Lakefront Brewery, Milwaukee Brewing Company, and Miller Brewery Tour. During the summer months, you may hear the hum of motorcycles driving through the city or back country roads. Harley Davidson Museum is another local favorite sharing our city's history.
If it's history you like, visit our local museums full of artifacts, interactive displays, and amazing artwork that will leave you in awe. My boys loved their dinosaurs and walking through the streets of Old Milwaukee, which meant visits to the Milwaukee Public Museum. I was always nervous taking the boys to the Milwaukee Art Museum, but close by is Discovery World which has grown as my boys have and become a favorite spot to take kids for learning about science and technology. During my college days, I worked down on Old World Third Street in the same building as the Edelweiss Cruises and Boat Tours; that area has changed over the years and only become better. If you have a creative side like me and enjoy supporting local artists, take the time to visit the Historic Third Ward to shop the galleries or enjoy the Riverwalk.
If music is what you enjoy, Summerfest is the place to be. No matter what type of music you like, this world known festival has something for all to enjoy. It begins late June and extends through the July 4th holiday. And if there isn't enough mentioned above, always know there is something to do somewhere in Milwaukee.
