Milwaukee MKE: Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA

Explore Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA; The largest city in Wisconsin has been known for more than a century for its beer, but Milwaukee also is much more--a city with a beautiful setting on Lake Michigan, many festivals, colleges, businesses, Harleys, theater, a rich arts scene, and genuine people. Milwaukee, founded over 150 years ago, sits at the confluence of three rivers and today provides a meeting place for conventions, festivals, and business. Milwaukee's emergence as a major national city at the start of the twentieth century marked its importance as a port and business center, but also as a destination for immigrants.
