My boyfriend and I are planning on taking in three full days(Friday, Saturday, Sunday) in Milwaukee towards the end of July. We are in our mid twenties and are budget conscience. This will be our first visit and I was hoping someone would have some advice as far as mapping out how to spend the three days. We're staying at the Best Western Woodsview Inn and we will have our car available. I have compiled a list of things we would ideally like to see/do but I am open to suggestion! Here's my list so far:
-Check out Festa Italiana at Maier Festival Park
-County Zoo(Any place for free parking?)
-Mitchell Park Horticultural Conservatory
-Cathedral Square Park(East Town Market on Saturday)
-We would love to spend some time at a state forest, Any preference? (Kettle Moraine State Forest, Haven Woods State Forest?)
-Very interested in food recommendations(One nicer dinner, maybe a couple inexpensive lunch spots, a unique bakery?)
Thank you so much in advance for your input! Looking forward to hearing back!
