The city of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, lies just 90 miles north of Chicago on the west side of Lake Michigan. The state’s largest city, it’s situated at the inflow of the Milwaukee River, which is joined within the city area by two tributaries: the Menomonee and the Kinnickinnic. It’s here you’ll find the city’s splendid Riverwalk pedestrian path, a delight to explore day or night.

Perhaps the city’s greatest claim to fame, however, is that it’s the home of Harley-Davidson, the legendary motorcycle. And, of course, Milwaukee was the setting of the hit 70s TV show, Happy Days; a fun free thing to do is search out the famous “Bronze Fonz” statue of the series’ leading character.
