  • This is one of the best places in Milwaukee to spend time with kids. The Gift of Wings kite shop offers a huge variety of kites, and the huge grassy expanses of Veterans Park are perfect for flying them. The kite shop also offers a surprising selection of food items: pancakes, Milwaukee bratwurst, big pretzels, burgers, etc. In another part of the building bikes are rented at very reasonable rates. It is also a short walk through the park to Milwaukee's art museum, and the Museum has a beautiful cafe right on the lake. The Museum cafe has a good selection of soups, salads, and sandwiches, along with good wine and craft brews.
  • Veterans Park is a beautiful lakefront park right by downtown Milwaukee. In addition to the lakes natural beauty, you can enjoy lots of open space and tamrmacked pathways to run, ride or just walk along. There's plenty of free parking spots available except on special occasions like the Independence Day fireworks show and the Milwaukee Air and Water show. The iconic Milwaukee Art Museum is on the edge of the park, as is Discovery World. The park is within easy walking distance to many recreational, entertainment and dining options along the lakefront and in the downtown area. It's a great place to relax.
  • This reminds of the Chicago lakefront. It was pretty deserted and a little lackluster when I visited, but a solid place to take a stroll and enjoy some nature.
  • love this place, watch out for ppl sitting alone in cars though
  • Always something to do or see here. Great views of the city and the lake. Opportunities to rent kayaks or canoes in the lagoon, bikes and surrey (multi-person bike carts) near the kite shop, and of course the kite shop near the lake provides concessions and high flying kite fun.
