Along with planning your wedding in the Milwaukee Area, there are so many great reasons to honeymoon in this exciting and adventurous region. Some important points of interest are:

  • Not to be outdone by it's architectural grandeur, The Milwaukee Art Museum's holdings boast one of the most extensive collections of works by Georgia O'Keeffe, a Wisconsin native. Also notable are substantial collections in Haitian, folk, American decorative and German Expressionist art.
  • Considered one of the best of its kind in the country, the Milwaukee Public Museum houses a vast collection of natural and cultural history. Notably, the museum is was the first to create total habitat dioramas — a technique that would later be mimicked in museums across the country — where animals are displayed in their natural environment.
  • Old World Third Street offers a unique blend of old and new situated close by the Milwaukee River. Originally a German neighborhood, the area is now an eclectic blend of boutiques, specialty shops and restaurants. Its German roots continue to thrive however, and if you're looking for an authentic taste of the Old World, try visiting Mader's German Restaurant — a popular place amongst locals — where you can get your fill of sauerbraten and schnitzel while sitting amidst a sizeable collection of medieval armor, weaponry and stained glass. Pick up treats to take home from world-famous Usinger's Sausage or The Spice House, where hard to find spices are aplenty.


  • At the Pabst MansionVisitors are free to roam the illustrious interior that includes fine examples of woodwork, fixtures, art and textiles from the era when Pabst lived in the home. Architecture and history buffs will enjoy the "behind the scenes" tour (additional fee required) of the Pabst Mansion, where a personal guide will escort them through every corner and crevice of the mansion.
  • The historic Basilica of St. Josaphat is by far, one of the most beautiful landmarks in the city. Though the church was completed in 1901, it would be many years later before its magnificent interior would be completed in 1928. One year later, the church was designated as the third Minor Basilica in the United States. Despite indoor and outdoor damage during the 1940s, it still possesses its original beauty: finely detailed oil paintings depict biblical allegory and many of the windows hold the original stained glass.
  • A trio of 85-foot, beehive-shaped domes make up the Mitchell Park Horticultural Conservatory, where plants from around the world are cultivated in a naturalistic setting. Two of the glass domes have distinct climates that feature plant life specific to their environments.


Home to Summerfest, the world's largest music festival, and a host of ethnic and cultural events, Milwaukee is a true American city. Old and new worlds blend across the urban landscape from busy downtown corridors to ethnic neighborhoods filled with small shops and eateries. And while Milwaukee still maintains a strong German heritage, it has also embraced the other diverse communities that have come to call it home. Visitors have a chance to explore this eclectic blend of cultures through food, entertainment and a wealth of seasonal events. Recent projects like the expansion of the Milwaukee Art Museum have put the city known mostly for industries like Harley Davidson and Miller Brewing Co. on the national radar. And whether you're enjoying beers at Miller Park or sipping martinis at the High Hat Lounge, you'll find that this city of nearly 600,000 (America's 19th largest) still has a small-town feel..
