Exploring Milwaukee
Milwaukee’s nicknamed Cream City because of its distinctive cream colored brick and Brew City because of its rich brewing history. Milwaukee borders the 22,300 square miles of Lake Michigan. The lake actually touches 14,200 square miles of Wisconsin. The Milwaukee RiverWalk spans nearly 3 miles along the Milwaukee River, taking you through downtown Milwaukee.

The Visit Milwaukee website is a great resource for restaurants, museums and outdoor activities and provides a guide to 24 HOURS IN MKE!
