Milwaukee is the largest city in the state of Wisconsin and the fifth-largest city in the Midwestern United States. The seat of the eponymous county, it is on Lake Michigan's western shore. Ranked by its estimated 2014 population, Milwaukee was the 31st largest city in the United States. The city's estimated population in 2017 was 595,351. Milwaukee is the main cultural and economic center of the Milwaukee metropolitan areawhich had a population of 2,043,904 in the 2014 census estimate. It is the second-most densely populated metropolitan area in the Midwest, surpassed only by Chicago. Milwaukee is considered a Gamma global cityas categorized by the Globalization and World Cities Research Network with a regional GDPof over $105 billion.
The first Europeans to pass through the area were French Catholic Jesuit missionaries, who were ministering to Native Americans, and fur traders. In 1818, the French Canadianexplorer Solomon Juneau settled in the area, and in 1846, Juneau's town combined with two neighboring towns to incorporate as the city of Milwaukee. Large numbers of Germanimmigrants arrived during the late 1840s, after the German revolutions, with Poles and other eastern European immigrants arriving in the following decades. Milwaukee is known for its brewing traditions, begun with the German immigrants.
Beginning in the early 21st century, the city has been undergoing its largest construction boom since the 1960s. Major new additions to the city in the past two decades include the Milwaukee Riverwalk, the Wisconsin Center, Miller Park, the Milwaukee Streetcar, an expansion to the Milwaukee Art Museum, Milwaukee Repertory Theater, and Pier Wisconsin, as well as major renovations to the UW–Milwaukee Panther Arena. The Fiserv Forum opened in late 2018.

Milwaukee is a city in the U.S. state of Wisconsin on Lake Michigan's western shore. It's known for its breweries, many of which offer tours chronicling its role in the beer industry. Overlooking the Menomonee River, the Harley-Davidson Museum displays classic motorcycles, including one of Elvis Presley’s. Nearby is the Milwaukee Public Museum, with its large-scale European Village and a recreation of old Milwaukee.
Milwaukee has historically been a major immigrant city. During the early 20th Century, German and Polish immigrants tended to dominate, and the city still strongly identifies with its German and, to a slightly lesser extent, Polish heritage. For part of the early 20th century German was even the main language of the city, and German names are still very common.
Milwaukee is home to some instantly recognized corporations such as Miller Brewing and Harley Davidson. Harley holds an enormous celebration on every fifth anniversary during Labor Day weekend attracting riders (and celebrity riders such as Jay Leno) by the millions to Milwaukee each time. The 115th anniversary was held in 2018.
Here’s the thing about Milwaukee: it’s cool, but for some reason it slips under the radar. The city’s reputation as a working man's town of brewskis, bowling alleys and polka halls still persists. But attractions like the Calatrava-designed art museum, badass Harley-Davidson Museum and stylish eating and shopping enclaves have turned Wisconsin's largest city into an unassumingly groovy place. In summertime, festivals let loose with revelry by the lake almost every weekend. And where else on the planet will you see racing sausages?
Getting around in Milwaukee is easy. Block numbers are consistent across the city, including most of the suburbs, starting roughly where the Milwaukee and Menominee rivers meet. All numbered streets run north-south, increasing in number as you head west from 1st Street. Most named streets go east-west.

ABOUT THE AIRFIELD
It is named after United States Army Air Service General Billy Mitchell, who was raised in Milwaukee and is often regarded as the father of the United States Air Force.
The first airport terminal opened in July 1927. That month, Northwest Airlines, Inc., began air service from Milwaukee to Chicago and Minneapolis/St. Paul (MSP). In August 1927, world-renowned aviator Charles Lindbergh visited the Milwaukee airport. Kohler Aviation Corporation began providing passenger service across Lake Michigan on August 31, 1929. On March 17, 1941 the airport was renamed General Mitchell Field after Milwaukee's military airpower advocate, Brigadier General William Billy Mitchell. On January 4, 1945, Mitchell Field was leased to the War Department for use as a World War II prisoner-of-war camp. Over 3,000 prisoners and 250 enlisted men stayed at the work camp. Escaped German prisoners were often surprised to find a large German American population just beyond the fence. The present terminal opened on July 20, 1955 and was designed by Leigh Fisher and Associates. In the year 1951 the airfield processed 279.226 passengers.
ABOUT GENERAL DOUGLAS MACARTHUR

ABOUT THE STREETCARS
The Milwaukee Electric Railway and Light Company is a defunct railroad in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, United States. Its Milwaukee streetcar lines ran on most major streets and served most areas of the city. The interurban lines reached throughout southeastern Wisconsin. The last streetcar to run in Milwaukee, and the entire state, operated on Wells Street on March 2, 1958. Electric locomotives continued operating at the power plants until the early 1970s. The last two remaining sections of interurban lines were to Hales Corners and Waukesha. They continued in operation until June 30, 1951 as part of the Milwaukee Rapid Transit and Speedrail Company's rapid transit service. The outer end of the East Troy branch (beyond Mukwonago) continues to operate as the East Troy Electric Railroad, a 7-mile (11 km) long heritage railroad.
Dates of operation: 1905 – 1958, Length: 191 miles (307 km)
Milwaukee, USA: In Motion!
We spent five days in Milwaukee in May 2016, and were completely (and very pleasantly) surprised by how cool Milwaukee is!
If we had to come up with one word to describe Milwaukee, it'd definitely be entrepreneurial. We met a lot of small business owners who are changing the face of the city, and we also learned about the big Milwaukeean dynasties like Pabst and Miller that built the city in centuries past.
In this video, the locations you see are as follows:
The Milwaukee River and riverfront/riverwalk in downtown -- on weekend evenings, Milwaukeeans jump on their boats and cruise up and down the river. We grabbed a beer at Rock Bottom Brewery and watched it all happen!
A view of downtown Milwaukee as seen from the 6th Street Viaduct. In the bottom left-hand of the shot, you can see the Harley-Davidson Museum, which is a cool thing to do in Milwaukee, even if you don't like motorcycles. We also suggest you stop by the Great Lakes Distillery, for drinks and a tour near the viaduct, and the Iron Horse hotel for food!
The historical-looking building is Milwaukee's City Hall, and the really cool-looking modern building is the Art Gallery.
Around 0:22, you'll see Old World Third Street. It's the historical German area of town, and even today there are many German restaurants and artisan food producers that have been operating in the same spot for more than 100 years! We took a food tour with Milwaukee Food Tours, and learned all about the German influence on Milwaukee.
Milwaukee is synonymous with BEER, and one of the best things to do in Milwaukee is to go on a brewery tour. We went on the Miller tour, which was FREE and included samples. We also went on the Lakefront Brewery Tour - one of the best (and funniest) in the country. The Lakefront tour charges, but is very worthwhile, and includes free samples, a free gift, and some hilarious memories!
Other locations include:
The Bronz Fonz
The Harley-Davidson Museum
Milwaukee Public Market
The Pabst Mansion
The hotel at the end is the Potawatomi Hotel & Casino, where we were hosted. The hotel is quite new, and was built for visitors to the city, and visitors to the casino. It's really well located for visiting the Harley Museum...only a short walk away.
Thanks to Visit Milwaukee for hosting us during our time in Milwaukee. We had a tonne of fun.

The black speck moving on the Milwaukee Art Museum's giant white wings is actually a painter. Worker
(Nats of sander from high above)
THIS IS NOT YOUR ORDINARY MAINTAINANCE JOB.
PAINTING OVER RUST SPOTS ON THE BURKE BRISE SOLEIL OF THE MILWAUKEEE ART MUSEUM, ISN'T FOR THE FAINT OF HEART.
SOUNDBITE (English): Matt Radmacher, owner of Wisconsin Industrial Painters. Walking out on those wings will be intense but it's not everyday you get to do that.
NOT ONLY IS THE STRUCTURE 11 STORIES OFF THE GROUND AT ITS PEAK, BUT IT'S � UNIQUELY SHAPED.
THE WINGS ARE COUNTER BALANCED BY THE WEIGHT OF THIS BRIDGE. THERE ARE NO PILLARS IN THE BUILDING BELOW.
SOUNDBITE: Kristin Settle, spokeswoman for the Milwaukee Art Musuem, You can't take the wings off of the building in order to get them painted so they have to do everything up there.
THIS IS ONLY THE SECOND TIME THE MOVABLE WINGS HAVE NEEDED TOUCHING UP SINCE THEY OPENED 13 YEARS AGO.
INTERNATIONALLY KNOWN ARCHITECT SANTIAGO CALATRAVA FACTORED IN THE NEED FOR MAINTENANCE. SO THERE'S A SECRET PASSAGEWAY
THAT LEADS TO THE TOP OF THE BUILDING.
SOUNDBITE: Kristin Settle, spokeswoman for the Milwaukee Art Museum, The tunnels and ladders are a little scary if you are claustrophobic or afraid of heights but once you are up there, once you are top of everything you just forget and it's so beautiful up there.
THE PAINTERS PUT ON HARNESSESES, ATTACHING THEMSELVES TO A LINE ALONG THE STAIRCASE.
MUSEUM OFFICIALS ADJUST THE WINGS SO WORKERS CAN WALK OUT ON THEM.
AND THEN THE MOMENT OF TRUTH.
SOUNDBITE: Matt Radmacher, owner of Wisconsin Industrial Painters. Where I was standing if you look up you just see wing sections and down you just see wing sections you really don't see below you, which kind of made it easier, you know not as scary.
BUT NO MATTER HOW YOU LOOK AT IT, IT'S NO CAKE-WALK GETTING THIS ICONIC STRUCTURE BACK TO ITS ORIGINAL CONDITION.

The best of Milwaukee in 21 hours
The first day of our trip, we missed the plane and ended up waiting in Milwaukee for 21 hours. But as it turned out, it wasn't a bad situation at all. We found a delicious restaurant by the Lake, right between the gorgeous Milwaukee Art Museum, which at the time was exhibiting one of the most unconventional art gallery named Accidental Genius, displaying the artwork created by mental patients and psychopathic prisoners. Unlikely as it might be, they are truly amazing.
Well, as the saying go, if there is a will, there is a way. Things do turn good if you have a will to go on forward. One score for team SunnyKup and they still have a whole week in Seattle and Chicago left!
