Milwaukee in the summer is an undiscovered gem.

When chilly winter weather is chased away, Milwaukeeans know how to celebrate!

The city explodes with outdoor beer gardens showcasing Milwaukee’s German heritage, sunny restaurant patios, and live music in the parks. Beaches buzz with volleyball players, windsurfers, and merrymakers.
And, if you’re not topping off your outdoor adventure with a Milwaukee beer, then you’re probably enjoying frozen custard from one of the many local Frozen Custard stands.
Milwaukee is a port city on the shores of Lake Michigan, the third largest of the great lakes when measured by surface area, and the only great lake entirely within the U.S.
The heart of Milwaukee’s downtown straddles three rivers – the Milwaukee, the Menomonee and the Kinnickinnic. (We’ll teach you how to pronounce these when you visit!)
In the summer, pleasure boats, Edelweisse river cruisers, and colorful kayaks can be seen going up and down the river to meet up with the many sail boats dotting the lake’s shores.
Milwaukee is most known for Summerfest. With over a thousand bands playing on stages right along lake Michigan, the eleven-day festival draws people from all over the world.
Festivals continue throughout the summer – from Irish fest to German fest to Kite fests to Lakefront Festival of the Arts next to the iconic Calatrava building of the art museum.
