From the bustle and activity of the city of Milwaukee to the quiet beauty of the glacially carved Kettle Moraine Valley, southeastern Wisconsin has much to offer its residents. Milwaukee, with a metro area population of over one million people, is alive and vibrant. The Brewers, the Bucks, and the Admirals (the city's professional hockey team) furnish sports enthusiasts with year-round enjoyment. In the spring and summer, enjoy Milwaukee’s lakeshore and experience the Summer of Festivals, with ethnic and cultural events almost every weekend. The new Milwaukee Art Museum (MAM) is open to the public even as work continues on the final sections of the building. The MAM was designed by the same architect who built the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain, and its collection is already winning rave reviews.
There is plenty to do outside the city, as well. If golf is your sport, Kohler, Wisconsin, has championship level courses sure to challenge you. For a weekend escape, try beautiful Lake Geneva near the Illinois border. For a quintessentially Wisconsin experience, the Door County peninsula which juts out northward into Lake Michigan has it all: scenic drives, country homes, small towns, and bed and breakfasts, all on the shores of one of the Great Lakes.
A short drive inland from Lake Michigan, the glacially carved Kettle Moraine Valley extends north and south for 100 miles. Explore the drumlins, eskers, and marshes, which have been left behind by a glacial collision thousands of years ago. In the northern Kettle Moraine you will find Horicon Marsh, the largest freshwater marsh of its type in the United States. The 32,000 acre marsh is a refuge for wildlife all year round.
