Local Events




Turner Hall
Established more than 130 years ago, Turner Hall honors Milwaukee’s rich German heritage in every sense of the word. The building was designed by a German architect, named after a German-American association and remains under the supervision of that same organization.
Trial mix
Metro Milwaukee boasts more than 300 miles of recreational trails, and you’re sure to find a perfect one to explore each month of the year. Here’s a sample of what the area has to offer.
Whitefish Bay
Located at the corner of Silver Spring and Lake drives, Winkie’s has been a family tradition for generations. The upscale variety shop, which dates to the 1940s, carries an array of novelty gift items. 
SUITE success
Whether they’re here for business, pleasure, or both, visitors to Milwaukee are finding many more choice hotel rooms in town lately, with more on the horizon.
Heart of the action
The recently opened Three Bridges Park in the Menomonee Valley is the latest step in the transformation of a long-abandoned rail yard into a popular destination for families and a growing number of businesses and employees in the area.
Milwaukee Icons 08-12-13
The home of the Milwaukee Brewers is an impressive attraction with its red brick façade, arched windows and retractable roof. Baseball players and the Racing Sausages aren’t the only ones to have graced the field. President George W. Bush threw the first pitch on the park’s inaugural opening day on April 6, 2001. 
Visit Waukesha 08-12-13
Historic charm, an ever-growing arts scene and a slew of new restaurants and gourmet food shops have revitalized downtown Waukesha.
Lower prices make winter a great time to visit the Windy City 02-11-13
CHICAGO — It’s sleek, shiny and sensational. But let’s add two more words to describe Chicago for tourists: darn expensive. On Feb. 1, admission to the Art Institute of Chicago jumped to $23 for out-of-state visitors. In the past month, a host of other price hikes that affect tourists have also taken effect: Museum of Science and Industry ticket prices rose.

Vacation Spots 

Eat your way through Nashville 04-07-2014
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Strong winds might blow through Chicago, and New York might never lay its head upon its pillow, but no city lives up to its nickname with as much gusto as Music City does. 

See Sierra Sid's Elvis gun collection in Sparks, Nev. 03-31-2014
SPARKS, Nev. — I am not so much a fan of Elvis Presley — sorry, not my generation — as I am an admirer of Elvis ephemera. All the over-the-top glitz and wretched excess, all the sequined white-leather jump suits and gaudy jewelry, I find at once fascinating and lurid.

Travel Features 

Paradise Found
Gardens can be fascinating places for meandering, meditation or mental and physical healing. And, southeastern Wisconsin is home to some of the loveliest public gardens in the country, where you can explore the many gifts of nature.

Drive and dine
Sometimes the best road trips are those with a savory reward at the end: an unforgettable restaurant meal. Fortunately, within an hour of downtown Milwaukee are several decadent options, from a throwback steakhouse with Lake Michigan views to a pizzeria with pies that rival those baked in Italy.

Mobile streaming
Aaron Carman likens owning a vintage Airstream trailer to owning a classic car, both for the wow factor on the open road and the ongoing maintenance issues. He and wife Amy found the 1971 Airstream about five years ago on eBay — it was in a barn in Eau Claire — and have been restoring it ever since.

The life loyal
Several times each year, Loyal Mehnert, 34, will veto a resort-style vacation in favor of a volunteer project.
Make your escape
It’s springtime, a season for slipping into a driving mode and rambling. Among the limitless "best" driving destinations are long-time favorites and several new explorations to consider. The only criteria: Get up and go! With this season’s high gas prices, the following suggestions are within a half-day drive from greater Milwaukee, making it easy on the pocketbook.

The holidays have a natural hustle and bustle to them that charms children and puts everyone in a good mood. But if the thought of the upcoming holidays feels more like a hassle, maybe it’s time to rethink your celebration.
