Not really known for much outside of the American Midwest, Milwaukee is about more than just cheese and beer. It is a city of surprising beauty, with a vibrant arts community and ready access to water (namely the three rivers that run through Milwaukee and Lake Michigan). Milwaukee also plays host to an excellent music festival known as Summerfest, as well as numerous ethnic festivals throughout the summer.
Don't forget to check out the world famous Milwaukee Art Museum. While you're in Milwaukee, you just might see some Miller beer products, and you'll more than likely hear a Harley or two roaring by, just to let you know that you are indeed in Milwaukee.
