Featured Events in Milwaukee:
Wisconsin's largest city is known for far more than cheese and lakefront property - it's one of the most prominent cultural centers in the Great Lakes region. The first Europeans to inhabit the area were French missionaries and fur traders, making Milwaukee a popular transportation hub during the pioneer days. Since the mid-1800s, there has also been a strong German presence in the area, making it one of the brewing capitals of the United States. In the 1900s, the city has experienced exponential growth, building skyscrapers, condos and several public amenities along the lakefront or riverbanks.
Milwaukee's large commercial presence naturally makes it a haven for sports fans, as it's home to nationally-renowned teams like the Brewers of the MLB, the Bucks of the NBA and the Admirals of the AHL. Other professional sports teams include Milwaukee Wave of the Major Indoor Soccer League, Mustangs of the Arena Football League, Bavarians of the National Premier Soccer League and Momentum of the National Women's Football Association. Those who enjoy outdoor sports will be enticed by the fact that Milwaukee is the host city of the Point Premium Root Beer International Cycling Classic, which features top professional cyclists and teams from around the globe.
The city is also known throughout the region for containing some of the most vibrant lakefront landscapes, including Lake Park, Riverside Park and West Park. Anyone who wants his or her fair share of sunbathing, picnics, grilled food, disc golf and ice skating will likely fall in love with the wide array of recreational activities that can be partaken in Milwaukee. Another scenic hotspot is the Monarch Trail, which is absolutely spectacular in the fall when the leaves change and the butterflies begin their migration.
Those who wish to experience some of the city's popular culture should visit Cathedral Park during the summer, where several musicians gather to play for the festival known as Jazz in the Park every Thursday night. In fact, the entire city is known particularly for the amount of festivals that take place here every year. Aside from the Wisconsin State Fair, Milwaukee is also home to the Summerfest, which is perhaps one of the largest in the country. Other popular annual events include the the Great Circus Parade as well as TrainFest - which is the largest operating model railroad show in the United States.
Anyone who wishes to gain a well-rounded knowledge of the Great Lakes region and Wisconsin will surely get what they've come for in The City of Festivals.
