MILWAUKEE ART MUSEUM


The Milwaukee Art Museum is an interesting structure both outside and within. For visitors planning to stop by this northern city, a visit to this museum is a must.


Located on the shore of Lake Michigan in the city of Milwaukee, WI, the museum is a giant, white, modern structure, built in a bizarrely spacey architecture style. Even if you are not planning to go inside, it’s worth it just to walk around the building and admire its unique architecture.


Over 1,500 art pieces are on display at the museum at all times. From paintings and sculptures, to photography, video art, drawings and more, this museum has it all.


Admission is $12 for adults and $10 for students, seniors and active military members. It is free for children aged 12 and under, so have your kids tag along for a cultural experience. If you come on a Sunday, the museum’s family Sundays offer a variety of artistic activities for children.


Visit www.mam.org for more information on exhibitions and events.


Another great nature vacation spot is Lake Geneva, located about an hour southwest from Milwaukee, WI, and just over an hour and a half northwest from Chicago, IL.


Lake Geneva, WI


It’s well-known historically for being the location where the wealthy hid away during the Chicago Fire of 1871. Nowadays, Lake Geneva still displays lovely manors and vacation homes to please the eye. For tourist


lodging, the town offers a variety of country inns and bed-and- breakfasts to suit anyone’s taste.


A lake and a quaint town in one, Lake Geneva is very popular, and as such a bit crowded. One of the biggest attractions is the Lake Geneva Cruise Line, which offers a variety of boat tours across the lake. The Black Point Estate Tour not only offers a boat tour, but an additional walking tour through a 19th century mansion; though we


suggest wearing a hat and gloves.


Take a casual stroll through the streets of Lake Geneva, visiting small shops along the way. Visitors are bound to come across an ice cream shop during their walk, and tasting the town’s delicious ice cream even in the winter is a must.
