I would love to take my summer travel assignment in Milwaukee! There so many fun activities to do along the Milwaukee Lakefront during the summer months such as paddle boats, bike and kayak rentals, boat cruises, or just taking a stroll along the beautiful lakefront and hanging out on some of their beaches. There is also just so many wonderful museums such as the Milwaukee Art Museum, Milwaukee Public Museum and Harley Davidson Museum – home of where the very first motor bike was created.
Another fun place to go is the Historic Third Ward which is home to tons of local restaurants, spas, theaters, galleries, and boutiques all in historic landmark warehouses. There are a few sites such as the Boerner Botanical Gardens or Mitchell Park Domes for a more serene setting. The Milwaukee County Zoo is also a great place to spend the day and there are often special events such as “Zoo a la Carte” where many local vendors come out and have stations all around the zoo to purchase food and drinks to get a little taste of Milwaukee.
For sports lovers, you can catch a baseball game at the American Family Field (formerly Miller Park) or even just a fun tour of the field. There are many breweries to tour as well as paddle taverns! Have a sweet tooth? Then you can’t miss out on some of the incredible custard spots such as Leon’s Frozen Custard or Kopp’s Frozen Custard. You’ll have to determine for yourself which is the best! – Jenny P, Clinical Nurse Manager.
