Explore Milwaukee

June 23, 2016

Summer is finally here in Milwaukee, and I am loving it! People kill me when they say there is not much to do in Milwaukee, but then I quickly tell them, ‘you are dead wrong.’

There are a ton of things to do in Milwaukee, and especially in summer, you just have to explore all the possibilities. In the past few weeks alone, I have gone to Locust Street Festival, and I will be attending Summer Solstice on Saturday, June 25. In addition to that, I have dined alfresco at Habanero Mexican Kitchen on Mayfair Road, as well as Trocadero, on Milwaukee’s eclectic East Side. Needless to say that we still have several ethnic festivals ahead of us to attend, not to exclude Summerfest and Wisconsin State Fair. Summerfest and State Fair—surely those are the standard norms that we have, and don’t get me wrong—they are great in and of themselves. All I am saying is that we have to open up our minds and explore different venues that Milwaukee has to offer by either going online to research or simply by getting up and getting out on our own to explore.

In order to have things happen in life, you have to make them happen. Life will surely pass you by if you don’t. This is it. We get this one life to live. So if locals or even out-of-towners feel that there is not a whole lot to do in Milwaukee, then you had better all think again and not let this summer or for that matter, life, pass you by with doing the same old thing.
