Our lake is truly great

People who are planning to visit Milwaukee often send me email, asking for suggestions of places to go. I love this aspect of my job. I always ask them a few preliminary questions and then respond with a tailored list of suggestions and links.

Depending on their budget and interests, my suggestions vary greatly. But the final item on my Milwaukee Musts List is always the same: visit the lake and visit it every day if you can.

Milwaukee has great museums, scrumptious restaurants and unique bars. But the most signature and stellar aspect of the city is Lake Michigan and its ever-changing appearance. 

You can eat tangy wings or drink craft beers in many cities in the country, but there are very few places where you can so easily access such a beautiful, moody body of water. 

To skip a trip to Lake Michigan is to completely miss Milwaukee.

Great article!

And always suggest that people coming from the airport take the Hoan Bridge into the city, it's the best view of the city and the lake at the same time. Very little traffic too.
