Must-see Milwaukee

Milwaukee is a great city full of charm and tradition. Yet, often overshadowed by its much larger neighbor, Chicago, it often doesn’t get much attention outside of the state. If you’re visiting Milwaukee, let me assure you that there is plenty to do here no matter what you’re into. Here’s a small sampling of what our great city has to offer.

Art Scene

Whether it’s a visit to any number of downtown galleries to see the work of fantastic local artists or a trip to our nationally-famous Milwaukee Art Museum, there’s plenty for the art lover to see here. You probably don’t think of fine art when you think of Wisconsin. You’ll be surprised.


With two major colleges, several semi-professional sports teams, and two top-level professional franchises, the sports fanatic will certainly be able to find something to do here. Whether it’s taking in the awesome atmosphere of Miller Park for a Brewers game or seeing the young and exciting Bucks basketball team, you won’t want to miss out on the action.

Food and Beverage

Considered by some locals to be a well-kept secret, the food scene in Milwaukee is extremely rich and diverse. In Milwaukee, we’re famous for our fun & casual local take on fast food, but we also have serious fine dining that rivals even the largest cities. No matter what you’re looking for, we have something for you.

Finally, I’d be doing a terrible disservice if I didn’t mention the beer scene. Second only to Portland, Milwaukee is home to the most micro-breweries in the entire country. Add to that the big-name brewers that also call Milwaukee home, a stop in the “Brew City” is a must on any beer enthusiast’s bucket list.

If you’re planning a visit to our great city, we’re thrilled to have you. Book a stay with us at Baymont Inn & Suites in Mequon and you’ll get a great room at a great price and, best of all, you’ll be just minutes away from all the action in Milwaukee!
