I wanted to thank everyone. We had an awesome time in Milwakee. The information we got from tripadvisor was extremely helpful. I wanted to give a brief report on our trip.
1. Lake Express- We enjoyed our crossing. The lake was smooth and no problems. This seems like a great way to cross Lake Michigan
2.Biking-we brought our bikes and found Milwaukee and excellant city to bike in. We rode all over downtown and never had a problem. I would bring bikes again.
3. Best Western Towne-This hotel worked for us. I was able to leave our bags at the front desk when we arrived early. However when I returned at 5, our room was not available(plumbing problem). We were switched to a VIP room, and our rate reduced. Special thanks to Karen. This a bare bones hotel...no a/c in halls or elevators. It was ok for us in that we did not spend much time in the room.
4.Lakefront Brewery-what a blast! One of the founders was our tour guide. He was funny and informative.And there was plenty of good beer.
5.We ate at the King And I..best Thai I have had. Also Ratzch's...good experience,food just ok. Happy hour is a good thing! We enjoyed 2 for 1 and 1/2 price appetizers at Brothers.
6. Pasbt Mansion-great tour. We also saw City Hall and Psiter Hotel and others.
7. Miller Brewery-also good fun tour.
We did so much more. Most of all we met so many friendly and nice people. We will return for sure.
