Drinks & Nightlife
Brady Street is the cool place to play. Do not skip Angelo's. But for the painfully hip, check out off-Brady spots like The Hamilton, Jamo's, Finks. My favorite beer bar is Stubby's Gastropub.

The Bayview neighborhood is a short drive from our place and is Brewers Hill if we were bigger and had bars. Go to Sugar Maple or Burnheart's for drinks, catch a movie at The Avalon, have brunch at Cafe Centraal, or walk over to the lakefront park.

Whether you're gay or just cool, Dix is a fun place at 1st & National and close to a lot of other fun nightlife. Close to much of Milwaukee's shockingly excellent restaurant scene on or near Second Street.

Walkable from our place, located in the space of former Wolf Peach, View MKE is intimate and has stunning views of the city. Outdoor seating is fantastic.

Combination food hall and shopping, there's something for every taste. From purveyors of artisan meats, cheese and olive oil, to mexican food, coffee, and some of the best damn seafood in the midwest, it's a bizarre of delights. Shop for flowers and spices, bring home local cheese curds and funny souvenir t-shirts, and sit and have a glass of fine wine curated by a local sommelier, or even take a cooking class. This is one of the gems of Milwaukee located in the Third Ward.

We have an embarrassment of riches here in Milwaukee when it comes to amazing chefs and restaurants. And many are located on or near south Second Street. Check out Movida, La Marenda, Morel, The Noble, Braise, Engine Co. Number 3, Odd Duck.

Located in the Pabst Brewery and a stone's throw from the new Bucks Stadium, Jackson's is amazing and unique. Treat yourself and then stroll around the old brewery campus, which Joseph Zilber revitalized into a thriving mini-neighborhood as a last gift to Milwaukee before the great man passed.

One of my faves, Stubby's food, vibe, and taps are unbeatable. Great for groups or dates, I recommend sitting at the bar to geek out on national micro-brews with the knowledgeable bartenders, or else sitting out on the patio for the river view. Perfect on Tuesdays during the summer after the free music at nearby Kaddish Park.

Everything Else
Take the brewery tour located a short walk away in Milwaukee's best brewery. The tour guides are usually hilarious, and you can even see the *actual* bottling machine featured in the opening credits of Laverne & Shirley. Even stay for the Friday Fish Fry. Go online for tickets ahead of time, they do sell out. This is a must for groups, don't miss this during a Milwaukee visit.

If the lakefront is Milwaukee's front lawn, then Cathedral Square is its backyard. Close to the new streetcar, you can catch a free weekly music series all summer, do the farmer's market thing on the weekend, go to Elsa's. You can walk here from our house.

Unique point of view and memorable activity for small or big groups. You can rent kayaks and tool around on the river in a downtown urban metropolis. Rent kayaks from multiple places- here on the map, or across the street from Milwaukee Public Market, or even closer to our house in Schlitz Park.

Huge natural beach, where Milwaukee's babes and buff bronze beauties bask in the warm sunlight. Breachfront bars, sand volleyball games, cookouts and special events bring all of Milwaukee out to Bradford Beach. Park of a wider system of lakefront parks, there's easy parking on Lincoln Memorial Drive and it a good base for lakefront strolling. Even rent bikes, roller blades or jet skis. Don't miss the kite enthusiasts flying giant kites in the summer, or the wind surfers in the autumn.

Parks & Nature
Because it's Milwaukee, our gorgeous riverside parks come with Beer Gardens! Bring the whole gang and grab some local flavor in big glass steins and enjoy the live music outside. There is a gorgeous view of the river from atop this bluff. Estabrook Park offers trails, jogging paths, dog park, skate park, a tot lot, and plentiful parking.

Locally known as "The Domes". A Milwaukee treasure made up of a flowery show dome, desert plant dome, and jungle rainforest dome. Perfect any time of year, I consider this an essential antidote to Milwaukee winters. Check out the schedule of events known as the Music Under Glass series, as well as the farmer's market on the weekends. Perfect outing for the kids, or even a place to decompress after a work day, this is one of my most favorite spots in Milwaukee.

Milwaukee's outdoor temple to music, locally known as The Summerfest Grounds. 100% of all Milwaukeeans have fond memories formed here throughout their lives. Home to the legendary grand-daddy of summer festivals, The Summerfest Grounds also host a festival almost every weekend from June to October. Smack dab in the middle of downtown on the lakefront, go visit the nearby parks even if there's not an event. Easy parking.
