Brew City

Milwaukee boasts well-preserved historical districts with a rich European past and a strong beer-brewing tradition. When Germans first arrived in Milwaukee in the mid-19th century, they set up breweries. Milwaukee became home to four of the world's largest breweries, though today only Miller remains. The city's relationship with beer is far from over, and beer halls, taverns, and brewpubs are abundant--and also rank among the popular places to visit during your trip. Milwaukee also offers those on vacation a collection of diverse museums, numerous green areas, and a lovely waterfront along Lake Michigan. The city's multicultural population has produced an excellent array of ethnic dining options. Make Milwaukee central to your United States travel plans using our United States trip itinerary maker.

Where to stay in Milwaukee

Staying in the city center puts you right in the heart of the activity, and means you can take advantage of all the things to do in Milwaukee’s walkable downtown area.
