Denis Sullivan day sails provide stunning views and, if you want, sore muscles
If you want the ultimate new perspective on the city, the best place to get it is on the lake. Unless you're a Lake Michigan boater, looking at the city from out on the water is a rare treat. Sailing on the S/V Denis Sullivan, which makes its summer home at Discovery World is an incomparable way to enjoy that view. But, while on board, you can also chip in some elbow grease and help the crew raise the sails.

Don't blink or you could miss this Barkhausen gem
Every week I drive past this place on 21st and Highland and it catches my eye. Though I haven't stopped and knocked on the door yet, I've been doing a little digging to see what I can find about the church at 1102 N. 21st St.

Some big announcements on tap at The Brewery
Recently, the 19th century cream city brick former Pabst bottling plant -- currently in the pre-development phase of a residential project aimed at university students -- was enclosed by a cyclone fence, but work hasn't started just yet. That seems about to change, according to Zilber Property Group.

Should the County sell O'Donnell Park to NML?
Northwestern Mutual has proposed purchasing O'Donnell Park from Milwaukee County for $14 million, though according the the plan NML would receive a $1.3 million credit to pay for parking structure maintenance. The public would still have access to the park, pavilions and parking structure. Is this in the long-term best interest of Milwaukee?

Urban spelunking: Bethlehem Lutheran Church
Steeple chasing has become something of a hobby and it has led me from St. John's to St. Francis to Trinity to another Trinity and beyond. For a long time I've had my sights set on St. Michael's on the West Side -- and I'm still planning on getting there -- but one day I noticed a sleek little church tower just south and I decided to investigate. What I found was that in true small-waukee style, the history of Bethlehem Lutheran Church, 2466 W. McKinley Ave. -- is entwined, at least initially, with the history of Trinity Evangelical Lutheran, 1046 N. 9th St., and other 19th century Milwaukee notables.

Discover LEGOLAND fun much closer than Florida
At LEGOLAND in Florida - and presumably the California location, too - there is a "miniland" of American urban skylines recreated diminutively with LEGO bricks. It's one of the highlights of the huge parks. But, if you can't get there to see it, don't worry. The LEGOLAND Discovery Center in suburban Chicago is itself a mini version of the outdoor LEGOLAND, though entirely inside. And, best of all, even the Discovery Center has a miniland.
