It can be hard to find things to do in Milwaukee when it rains, but there are plenty of fun, family-friendly attractions that are perfect for a day out. We’ve rounded up some of the best Milwaukee has to offer, and if you’re in town this weekend, make sure to take advantage of these great activities!
If you’re looking for a place to reconnect with nature, look no further than the Mequon Nature Preserve. This gorgeous spot is full of rushing rapids, grassy hills and flower-covered cliffs.
The park also has an array of trails that run throughout the woods and open fields. Whether you’re a hiker, biker or birdwatcher, these trails are the ideal way to connect with nature in Milwaukee.
If you want to get your culture on, the Milwaukee Public Museum is a must-visit. With over 4.5 million artifacts, it’s a treasure-trove of fun and educational attractions. It also has an immersive “Streets of Old Milwaukee” exhibit that recreates the shops and houses that once lined Milwaukee’s downtown streets.
Located in the heart of downtown Milwaukee, the Mitchell Park Horticultural Conservatory is an incredibly unique attraction. The three beehive-shaped domes house plants from all over the world, and it’s an amazingly fascinating place to see nature at its finest.
If you’re a fan of beer, you won’t want to miss the Lakefront Brewery, one of the top craft breweries in Wisconsin. Tours are free and are a wonderful activity for the entire family, especially kids.
