Why Milwaukee Is The Best Vacation City In America
The U.S. is full of fun destinations for vacation spots, but Milwaukee tends to be overlooked. While we are
the most underrated city around, we really should get more attention than we do. From amazing sightseeing opportunities to cuisine that’ll leave your mouth watering, Brew City should be on the top of your list when looking for somewhere to visit. Who knows? You might end up wanting to call MKE home!
1. The festivals.
If you want to get away for awhile to celebrate the good things in life, you’ve come to the right place. Milwaukee has been deemed the "City of Festivals," and for good reason! Whether you want to get back to your roots at a heritage festival like Irish Fest, Polish Fest, Indian Summer, or want to go all out at Summerfest—the largest music festival of the world—we have a celebration for anything and everything!
2. Incredible restaurants.
Milwaukee is truly a city for foodies. We’ve grown exponentially in the food industry and each and every neighborhood is full of local restaurants that will steal your heart. If you can’t choose just one for lunch, check out the Milwaukee Public Market and taste a bit of everything.
3. Addictive coffee.
Whether you’re a coffee geek or you just enjoy a good cup of joe in the morning, Milwaukee’s coffee scene is sure to blow you away. On nearly every corner and at most local restaurants, you’ll find a local roast that’s bursting with flavor. It might not be common knowledge, but Milwaukee is a top competitor with famous coffee cities like Seattle or Denver.
4. Jaw dropping views.
The Good Land is a beautiful city. Whether you’re walking on the shores of Lake Michigan, or taking a hike through one of our 150 city parks, the views are breathtaking and you won’t want to go home!
5. The sports.
Despite being in the same state as the Green Bay Packers, Milwaukee is fanatical about our home teams too. Whether it be the Bucks or the Brewers, we’ll bring you tailgating and show you a fantastic time.
6. The beer, of course.
It’s well-known that Brew City is the beer capital of the country, and although that sounds like a problem to some, it brings us a lot of pride. When visiting Milwaukee, you’ll experience brews like you never have before. Start with a classic brewery tour at Miller or Lakefront, then check out a cool local microbrewery. Wherever you go, you’re sure to find an amazing brew on tap.
Milwaukee isn’t just a big city, it’s also extremely walkable. The Riverwalk is a great way to stroll through large parts of the city with amazing views. Looking for a specific stroll? Check out

8. Unique hotels.
While staying at a friends house is ideal for many travelers, MKE has some sweet accommodations. We recommend
this unique hotel
in the restored Pabst Brewery Complex!
9. Interesting museums.
There is an
endless list of museums to choose from
in Brew City, so it's pretty hard to get bored around here. From fine art to hands-on science museums, there’s something here for everyone.
10. The locals.
What will make your vacation in Milwaukee truly unique comes down to one thing: the people. There are no better people than Milwaukeeans, and we will always make you feel right at home when you visit our city. Visit Milwaukee once, and you'll make true friends forever.
