Port of Milwaukee

Situated on Lake Michigan's western shore, Milwaukee is a popular port stop on Great Lakes cruises. As a large North American city, it offers much to see and explore for nearly any type of traveler, including world-class museums, a brand-new waterfront park, an excellent zoo and many other attractions like the Mitchell Park Horticultural Society.

However, Milwaukee is best known for two things: Beer and baseball, and lovers of either or both will not be disappointed in its abundance of breweries (many open for tours) -- including Miller Brewing Company -- and its pervasive baseball culture. Even if you're not in town during baseball season and can't catch a Brewers game, baseball enthusiasts might still consider a tour of famous Miller Park.
