  • Taste of Urban Milwaukee Food & Cultural Tours
    Amber Flanagan's grandparents moved to Milwaukee from Mississippi in the 1960s, bringing with them their culinary heritage and their firm belief in the importance of good eating. Today, Amber carries on their passion for gastronomical traditions by leading walking food tours of the Silver City District and the Historic Third Ward. Milwaukee?s history as a hub for immigrants from all over the world is reflected in the city's diverse ecosystem of restaurants: tours may bounce between Vietnamese, Peruvian, Thai, and Mexican cuisines on their journey. Some restaurant outings incorporate cooking demonstrations, which could otherwise only be glimpsed after donning an elaborate busboy disguise.

  • Milwaukee Seven Seat Bike Tours
    Sure, riding a seven-seat conference bike with six other folks is a lot less work than pedaling one by yourself, but that's not the only benefit to traveling in a group. Milwaukee Seven Seat Bike Tours educates guests about local history via the conference bike. Led by raconteur Shlomo Levin, passengers all pedal the circular bike together while passing parks that contain mysterious human remains and shadowy street corners where countless cans of beer were left... only half-drunk. Guests can enjoy water and soft drinks on the tour, which are served free of charge.

  • Chicago Helicopter Experience
    Chicago is famous for its skyline, but there's only so much sky you can see from the ground. That's why at Chicago Helicopter Experience, pilots lift passengers from Chicago's first private heliport, to enjoy the view of downtown's busy streets and wide-open views of the city's magnificent architecture. Three types of tours each afford a unique experience, whether it's seeing the sunset reflecting off the Willis Tower or cruising over the nocturnal landscape of the city. Each tour takes place within the state-of-the-art EC130 helicopter, which features plush leather seats, noise canceling headsets, and bubble windows with a panoramic 180? view outside.

  • Wheel & Sprocket
    Chris Kegel started at Wheel & Sprocket in 1973, two weeks after the bike shop opened. Back then, he was a bike mechanic, but over the past four decades, as the bike shop grew to multiple locations, Chris worked his way up. Today, he's Wheel & Sprocket's CEO, and keeps the company true to its founding goal: making bike rides more fun. Wheel & Sprocket does that not only by selling bikes in more than 18 categories, but also by taking care of them. Its mechanics can repair any bike they sell, and they also offer comfort-enhancing bike fittings. Every week, they also highlight cycling's social aspect by hosting group bike rides, which unlike the name implies, doesn't involve everyone piling onto one bicycle.

  • Wisconsin Christmas Carnival of Lights
    Illuming Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp-Resort for the third year, the Wisconsin Christmas Carnival of Lights ornaments a nearly mile-long drive-thru trail with more than a million lights. Leisurely drift past scenes of elves tinkering away in Santa's workshop, Rudolph bravely piloting Santa's sleigh, a life-size carousel, four enormous gingerbread houses adorned in candies, and a ranch where formerly feral stockings live happily domesticated. Cups of regular coffee or apple cider await trekkers in Santa's Coffee Shop after their radiant voyage.

  • Pabst Mansion
    Completed in 1892 as the private home of the Pabst family, Pabst Mansion stands as the last bastion of more than 80 mansions built for Milwaukee’s elite during a booming, bygone era. Since its construction, the estate has housed archbishops, priests, and sisters and was saved from near-demolition during the 1970s. The Flemish-Renaissance-Revival home has since been awarded a place on the National Register of Historic Places for its bounty of architectural intricacies. Today, on-staff docents conduct a range of tours for public groups, private parties, school groups, and well-behaved rugby teams through the fortress of halls, opulent rooms, and verdant grounds, each restored to their original condition. The Pabst Mansion’s impressive art collection includes works from the 1640s through the 1900s by artists such as William-Adolphe Bouguereau, Gaetano Trentanove, and Eugene Joseph Verboeckhoven. The emporium of excess also features Pabst Beer Pavilion, the pavilion built for the World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago, and the glass-covered conservatory where tropical plants and beer trees continue to flourish. The mansion gift shop holds classic Pabst drinkware and memorabilia as well as antique photos, books, and former employees' original finger paintings.
