Lakefront brewery is by far the best brewery tour in Milwaukee! It doesn’t cost a lot of money and you get an awesome tour and a lot of beer to drink! You can go to their website and reserve a spot for the time you want, which means you can “skip the line” when you go.
If you want more beer, Estabrook Beer Gardens is “closing down” for the season all weekend. Estabrook is an outdoor beer garden, themed after the ones in Germany, and this weekend it is half off beer, or bier as they call it! Here is the link tot he Facebook event for it, https://www.facebook.com/events/673352282690042/. Just keep in mind that it is outside, so you will either need to dress warm or drink enough beer where you don’t care!
The Art museum is pretty good if you are into that kind of thing.
The Safe House is the spy themed resteraunt. It is different and kind of cool. But keep in mind you go somehwere like that for the atmosphere and the experience, not the food. The food itself was over priced and not very good, BUT it was the coolest “dining out” experience that I’ve ever encountered.
One of my favorite places to just walk around, shop & eat is the Historic Third Ward. Parking is a bit annoying around there, but you can walk or bus there easily from downtown (if that is where you are staying). If you go to the Third Ward, stop at the public market! I absolutely LOVE the public market!
The website onmilwaukee has declared that October is Dining Month, so they have been posting the highest voted resteraunts in the city in many different categories. So if you want to find a good resteraunt, check their website out, http://www.onmilwaukee.com/dining/recently.html. Or if you want a few personal suggestions I can let you know those too!
If you are a Harley person you can go to the Harley museum. I’m not a Harley person, so I’ve never gone and I can’t telly ou personally what I thought about it, but I know many have really enjoyed it.
Oh, do the River Walk! It is downtown and pretty cool. There is even a bronze statue of the Fonz you can find!
Brady street is something that you might want to check out too.
Of course if the weather is nice, go to the lake shore! There are a few different parks over there, like Veterans, Lake Park, etc.
