Destination Guide

Destination: Milwaukee

Don't think Milwaukee is just a beer-and-brats town surrounded by some impressive golf courses. Start with the $110 million Quadracci Pavilion at the Milwaukee Art Museum designed by Santiago Calatrava. Its wing-like structure earned it the designation as the Sexiest Building by virtualtourist.com.

During your golf trip, check out downtown. It is a collection of reborn neighborhoods boosted by an economy held aloft by a diverse group of Fortune 500 company headquarters. Work around your golf game to visit the Harley-Davidson Museum, where you can see a motorcycle from nearly every model year since they started making them in 1903. Or roll a game or two at the Holler House, a south side neighborhood bar that has the nation's oldest certified bowling alley. Two lanes laid by hand in 1908 are still serviced by a personal pin setter.

Snap a shot of the Bronze Fonz statue inspired by the TV show "Happy Days" or take a brewery tour by boat, stopping in at MillerCoors and Lakefront Breweries.

This city on a bluff overlooking Lake Michigan isn't an indoors place, not by a long shot. Enjoy a warm summer afternoon sailing, windsurfing or fishing for bass, trout or whitefish. Pedal around the city and the lakeshore on 65 miles of bike paths or stroll along the RiverWalk.

And in less than an hour from downtown, you have a choice of dozens of excellent golf courses, from Erin Hills Golf Course that will host the 2017 U.S. Open, to The Bog, a memorable Arnold Palmer course that has settled into just about everyone's best courses lists. And don't let the fact that Brown Deer Park Golf Course is part of Milwaukee County Parks fool you. This course is a classic. It opened in 1929 and is known for its abundance of bunkers.

Afterward, see some of the 3,500 animals at the Milwaukee County Zoo or visit a rain forest and desert in the Domes at the Mitchell Park Conservatory.

Get a glimpse of 19th century Milwaukee in the Historic Third Ward, once a German neighborhood that is now a restored warehouse district with an array of art galleries, shops and restaurants, including The Wisconsin Cheese Mart, which has been selling hundreds of varieties of cheese since 1938.

Wind up the day with a meal of any flavor. Dining choices range wildly, from the Slavic fare at Three Brothers in a former Schlitz tavern to four-star dining at Sanford to lakeside food at Coast or The Knick.

It will take just one golf trip to Milwaukee to realize breweries are just a drop of what this place has to offer.
