First stop for any visitor is the city’s Historic Third Ward and Riverwalk  for lots of shopping and noshing.
For lunch, try the Riverwalk Bistro  which has a splendid patio.
After a rest, you’ll head for Milwaukee Historic Turner’s for fish fry or any of their other wonderful eclectic dishes. After dinner take in a show at the Pabst Theater or Marcus Center for Performing Arts  (MCPA).
The classic Milwaukee hotel is the Pfister ; if you have the dough, it’s worth the splurge.
You’ve got to be up to see the sunrise over Lake Michigan; it’s spectacular, anywhere along the lake. You’ll be hungry afterwards, so head for a healthy breakfast thereafter at Beans and Barley .
In the afternoon, after a rest up, take in a tour of what made Milwaukee famous at Miller Brewing . Throw in a coffee along Brady Street  before dining at Karl Ratzsch’s Old World Restaurant , for a taste of what German food can be at its best.
For a bit of nightlife , head to Jefferson Street for a quiet evening drink, or, for a bit more fervor, concentrate on Water Street.
