On the southwest shore of Lake Michigan, Milwaukee is a city of genuine American charm. The pretty downtown lakefront offers a range of boutique shops, galleries and outdoor dining options.
For those interested in architecture, the city boasts a number of gems, including the august Pabst Theater, the dramatic modern structure of the Milwaukee Art Museum and the spaceship-esque Greek Orthodox Church designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.
The city is also home to the Milwaukee Brewers baseball team who take their name from the locally founded Miller Brewing Company. The city is perhaps best known for motorcycles and the Harley-Davidson museum is a particular highlight, celebrating the 100-year history of these iconic motorcycles.
