    This is a beautiful state, with over 15,000 lakes and thousands of miles of rivers and streams.

    Wisconsin’s varied countryside also includes sandstone cliffs, sandy beaches, northern forests and rich, southern farmland and is famed for its hospitality and friendly atmosphere. It’s also known as the beer capital of the nation!

    Milwaukee, on the southeast shores of Lake Michigan, is the state’s largest city. Once known primarily as a beer-making town, Milwaukee today has only one major brewer – Miller. However, the “city of beer” still has numerous taverns, bars and microbreweries. Another highlight not to be missed is the artsy Third Ward, a restored warehouse that is now a National Historic Landmark featuring terrific dining, a lively nightlife scene, art galleries and antique shops.

    Whilst in town, visit the outstanding Milwaukee County Zoo, the Midwest Express Centre and the Milwaukee Public Museum, one of the nations finest. Also why not take a trip to the Harley Davidson museum, over 100 years in the making which is located in downtown Milwaukee. This huge museum adds a whole new dimension to the Harley-Davidson experience, you’ll get a feel for the freedom, camaraderie and pride that Harley-Davidson riders experience every time they fire up their motorcycles.

    Basketball fans can catch a NBA Bucks game and baseball fans can cheer on the Brewers at Miller Park, alternatively hop aboard one of several fun cruises on either Lake Michigan or the Milwaukee River.
