Coming to Milwaukee for July 3rd Fireworks

by wpyrock

I will be driving from Minneapolis down to Racine for the July 4th parade and hope to make it to Milwaukee in time for the fireworks.

I hear that parking is a nightmare and coming from out of town, I would like some help.

Can you see the fireworks from the Summerfest grounds?

Can you take the Summerfest shuttles and go to Veterans Park?

Just trying to see what I am getting myself into.

Thanks!

Yes, you can see fireworks from Summerfest grounds. Parking is bad down there that day. If you park 6 or more blocks away, it won't be too bad, or find a ramp and park there. Best to get there early, if you get there late afternoon, it might be tough.

I don't know about the shuttles going to Vets park, but they do have them from the State Fair park(about 84th St), and you can park out there and take a bus in if you want to avoid parking downtown.

Thanks. Last year we went to Summerfest on the 4th and parked at a shuttle lot. Will probably do the same and watch the fireworks from the Summerfest grounds.

Travel Tips for Milwaukee

Beer, Brats, Culture....

by kosalof

Oh gosh...one thing? I don't think I could do that! The Calatrava Wing at the Milwaukee Art Museum is spectacular, as well as our beautiful lakefront at Veteran's Park. We also have the Mitchell Park Domes, Miller Park, Milwaukee Public Museum with IMAX Theater, tours of Miller Brewery, Potawatomi Bingo and Casino....I could go on and on! When I am away from Milwaukee probably what I miss the most is being near a Great Lake! I love to rollerblade, bike, or just walk along the lakeshore, taking in the view of all the sailboats in the summertime.

John Plankinton Sculpture in the Plankinton Arcade

by yooperprof

John Plankinton (1820-1891) is regarded as the father of the Wisconsin meat industry, and he is remembered as one of the fathers of Milwaukee as well. Originally from Delaware, he moved to Wisconsin in the 1850s and quickly became involved in the meat packing business, associating with Philip Armour and gradually creating a company with interests all over the Midwest.

The Plankinton Arcade - at 161 W. Washington - was actually created in the 1930s. It's now the centerpiece of the eastern end of the Grand Avenue Mall. It's actually quite a nice space, pleasingly proportionate and classically refined. "Meeting at the Plankinton statue" is a good idea if you have to rendez-vous with someone in downtown Milwaukee!

The Diederichs House (Lion House) (1855)

by yooperprof

The Diederichs House - aka the Lion House - is guards by two fierce marble cats. The fine ante-bellum mansion was originally designed by the firm of Mygatt and Schmidtner, although subsequent alterations were made by Howland Russel at the end of the 19th century.

Edward Diederichs was a German-American businessman who worked hard and prospered in this most German of midwestern cities.

With its comfortable classical facade, the Diederichs House sets a prosperous tone on the fashionable East Side. At 1241 N. Prospect, it is on the National Register of Historic Places.

general tips

by Audra21

spring time lasts about 2 maybe 3 weeks up here, fall is about the same; the rest of the time is either freezing cold, or swelteringly hot. people are friendlier as the weather warms up, but don't expect to speak to a kind person in the freezing winter months everyone is too cold to be polite. if you are driving a car; gas is very expensive and often is raised 10-11 cents over night. and then takes a week to drop down to a decent price. Also don't be surprised if people pass you on the shoulder while you drive the interstates, it seems to be the norm here in Wisconsin.

"See a Brewers Game!!"

by tetonski1

Miller Park is unique among other MLB ball parks because of its architecture.

The park's retractable roof lets the sun in on good days, and keeps the rain out on bad ones.

This is a massive ballpark, but was definitely built for watching baseball. The outfield bleachers are faced directly toward home plate, while the seating areas down each line curve in toward the infield. Brewers boast that the seats closest to the catcher in back of home plate are actually closer to him than the pitcher is: the seats are 56 seat behind home plate, and the rubber on the pitching mound is 60 feet 6 inches from home plate. (The Brewers say that this is the closest seats are allowed to the playing field, per MLB rules.)

Miller brew flows throughout the stadium, and you can see the Miller Brewing Company from it's parking lot.

If you're hungry visit the Hot Zone, where you can grab a full meal at TGI Friday's Front Row Sports Grille.

The team actively encourages tailgating: it won't crack down on you if you take an extra spot or two in the parking lot and set up chairs and a grill, and scattered throughout the parking lots are concrete containers for placing your hot coals. And if you don't bring your own food, you can still tailgate: the Klements Sausage Haus in the East River parking lot sells brats and other food items before and after the game. The only downfall of going to a Brewers game is that realistically, it will cost a family of four almost $200 to attend a game,(once you factor in parking and concessions). That is unless the family sits in the absolute cheapest seats in the house.

Club Infield, $35; Loge Diamond Box, $30; Loge Diamond Box Family Section $30; Field Outfield Box, $28; Loge Infield Box, $26; Loge Outfield Box, $20; Terrace Box, $17; Terrace Reserved, $12; Field Bleachers, $10; Loge Bleachers, $10; Bernies Terrace, $5

There is no free parking. Preferred Parking in a huge parking lot that's not really close to the park is $12. You can also park for $6 farther away from the ballpark.
