Tours are an ideal way for anyone to learn more about a new city without resorting to drastic measures such as running for mayor. Get acquainted with Milwaukee the easy way with today's Groupon: for $30, you get two tickets to Milwaukee's Photo Walk from Milwaukee Food Tours (a $60 value, tax included). The tour is free for children 8 and younger and $10 for children 9–15.
With a certified tourism ambassador at the helm, Milwaukee Food Tours' food-less Photo Walk ushers transplants and natives alike through the enclaves and boroughs of downtown Milwaukee in a guided shutterbug hunt spiced with historical enlightenment. Buckle your gallivanting loafers and strap the camera to your forehead for more than two hours of perambulation through scenic thoroughfares such as the Third Ward, Wisconsin Avenue, and the Public Market, with knowledgeable narration provided at significant sights and awkward silence emanating at unimportant ones. Amateur or professional lens wranglers can benefit from the guide's mentoring and instruction on employing creative techniques to capture textured building elements and picturesque vistas in neighborhoods first settled by Italian, Irish, Polish, and German immigrants. The family-friendly tour concludes at the lakefront after trekking a little more than a mile, near the Milwaukee Art Museum, allowing patrons to share their newfound knowledge with glass-encased antiquities thirsty for tales from the outside.
