Milwaukee, Wisconsin: Art, Breweries, and Motorcycles along Lake Michigan
About 3 miles east of the bed and breakfast, the iconic Milwaukee Art Museum sits right on the lake and borders the Milwaukee River. More than 20,000 works line the walls here, ranging from antique pieces to contemporary art, including a large collection of Georgia O'Keeffe paintings. Just south down the street, a river walk snakes through the Historic Third Ward, where galleries, boutiques, and up-and-coming restaurants occupy century-old warehouses.
Milwaukee has been synonymous with beer brewing since the mid-19th century, when Miller, Pabst, and Schlitz dominated the landscape. Several microbreweries also call Milwaukee home: At Lakefront Brewery, you can sip four 6-ounce samples of freshly brewed beer while taking a lighthearted guided tour of the facility. Popular Lakefront beverages range from the amber, Vienna-style Riverwest Stein lager to New Grist, an award-winning gluten-free beer.
The Harley-Davidson Museum is positioned on a 20-acre campus comprising three buildings that chronicle the iconic motorcycle's evolution and its culture. More than 450 motorcycles and thousands of artifacts make up the displays, including a collection of engines and the oldest-known Harley in existence. Visitors can peek into the design lab, featuring several early prototypes and sketches. The experience gallery lets guests climb aboard real motorcycles and test out the season's most adorable skull bandannas.
