Description - 111 Places in Milwaukee That You Must Not Miss by Michelle Madden
Just as its nickname, 'cream city', has nothing to do with beer or dairy, the city of Milwaukee itself is fraught with surprises. While it is undoubtedly the jovial land of beer and cheese (and brats, bowling and The Brewers, for that matter) the city is also a centre for world-class art, architecture, culture and innovation, and has been since the 1800s. Discover Milwaukee's most unexpected treasures - visit a 15th century French chapel, or a 425 million-year-old tropical reef. Throw a turkey at the nation's oldest sanctioned bowling alley. Watch an art museum flap its wings, or tour the city's only urban cheese factory to find out why cheese curds squeak. Milwaukee, a city both stunning and charming, also possesses a dry, self-deprecating wit and goofy cleverness. Visit 111 amazing places that reveal this unique character, one that keeps Milwaukee's locals local, and beckons visitors back again and again. AUTHOR: Michelle Madden is a screenwriter and journalist who has contributed to publications including The New York Times, TIME, The Wall Street Journal, Women's Wear Daily, Los Angeles Times Magazine, NYLON and Jane magazine.
