There’s A Forgotten Lake Hiding Underneath Milwaukee and Its History Is Fascinating

Milwaukee is full of unexpected surprises at every turn. Outsiders don’t realize that our little city is full of fun, festivals, and flavors, but once you see it you won’t soon forget. The same goes for this little piece of history that’s hiding beneath our city streets. In a world that’s compromised of so much water, it’s hard to believe that entire bodies of it can exist unbeknownst to us, but Milwaukee has been hiding a shoreline other than Lake Michigan for centuries.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
