A cool city with a laid-back vibe. Stroll past lively brewpubs along downtown’s charming RiverWalk and enjoy shopping at the Milwaukee Public Market in the trendy walk-around neighborhood of the Historic Third Ward. Award-winning brewery tours await and no one can resist the Harley-Davidson Museum, where you can have a blast playing Easy Rider!

Cleopatra: The Search for the Last Queen of Egypt

Who does she think she is? The Queen of Egypt?
The world of Cleopatra VII, lost to the sand and sea for over 2,000 years, will be brought back to life through the exhibition of 150 artifacts from the smallest gold pieces to colossal statues at the Milwaukee Public Museum. The exhibition, Cleopatra: The Search for the Last Queen of Egypt, will open on October 14, 2011 and extend into the spring 0f 2012, only the third stop in the entire world and second in the nation.

Lakefront Brewery’s Pumpkin Lager and Sprecher Brewery’s Oktoberfest beer aren’t the only “spirits” in Milwaukee this fall. If paranormal activity ignites your inner ghost chaser, reserve the haunted penthouse room of Shaker’s Cigar Bar and World Café, scene of a murder at this former bordello. Take the ghost tour of the building with period authentic absinthe cocktail in hand to help coax the spirits from their corners before your stay.

Milwaukee Food Tours also serves up the haunted history of Milwaukee’s unique neighborhoods on a three-hour bus tour featuring local ghost stories through the Historic Third Ward, along Brady Street and down Wisconsin Avenue. Delicious tastings in the haunted Concordia and Fifth Ward neighborhoods with accompanying BOO-ze and spirits fill out the activities and your stomachs along the way.

From the time the leaves go from green to gold and from gold to the ground, Milwaukee rolls through fall with plenty to do and see. Milwaukee – the perfect fall getaway destination!
