Milwaukee and Beyond

As promised (a month ago…okay, okay) I am giving you some more pictures and details from the rest of my trip to Wisconsin, which centered in and around Milwaukee! 
To Do List:
1. State Fair:  If you are in town at the right precious time of year, you can go to the Milwaukee State Fair!  We were lucky enough to cruise into the state just as the fair was wrapping up, and, because people really are that friendly in the Midwest, we were given two free admission tickets, so BOOM! We were on our way to cheese curds, 25-cent glasses of fresh chocolate milk, Mexican corn in a cup, and all the Miller Lite one could ever desire.  I’ve been to other state fairs, and this one is definitely, by far, the best.  (No disrespect, North Carolina.)
2. Brewers Game: Now this window of opportunity is bigger; if you are in the area during baseball season, Miller Park is a fantastic excursion.  It’s a beautiful indoor/outdoor park that has a really small, intimate feel.  I felt like I was watching the game in a living room of 30,000 people.  Tickets are super cheap, and there are always giveaways and food vouchers (my husband and I each got a $10 voucher for concessions just for stepping in the doors, and our tickets were $14 each for good seats, so we made out like the bandits that we are.)
3. Lake Front: Milwaukee is a lucky city indeed because it sits on Lake Michigan, and the views from the shore are pretty spectacular.  Take the time to go down there, walk around, and take it all in! The Lake is also so enormous, it almost feels like looking out on the ocean.
4. Historic Third Ward: If you are going to go anywhere in downtown Milwaukee, make it the Third Ward.  This is the most quaint little riverside downtown, full of awesome shops and even better restaurants.  It feels chic and cozy at the same time.  Be sure to visit the Milwaukee Public Market while you are there, which is an indoor foodie haven, with stalls selling local goods; you can even grab a whole meal there.And of course, don’t forget to make up your own itinerary as you go.  When you travel, it’s always good to stop by the “must-sees,” but take the time to explore as well, and come up with some must-sees of your own!
