Lonely Planet Lists Milwaukee as Top Spot in U.S.
The travel publisher created the "Best in the U.S." list, which is compiled of the "most unexpectedly exciting places in to see in the United States in 2016". This mention comes just after the Boston Globe listed the city as a top place to visit in 2016.
 
With numerous other mentions on its website, Milwaukee holds a place on this elite list. The publisher goes on to say, "Synonymous with beer since the 1850s thanks to an influx of German immigrants, the city’s beery side still bubbles strong. Brew-loving travelers can tour both the Miller and the Lakefront breweries, have a draft at Best Place in former Pabst headquarters and sample the new wave of craft brews at the many local pubs. The German history also comes through in the local obsessions with sausages and dairy: get brats and beer cheese soup at Milwaukee Brat House and sample local cheeses at Uber Tap Room. Have your camera ready for the Milwaukee Art Museum, with the Santiago Calatrava-designed Quadracci Pavilion that looks poised to take flight over Lake Michigan at any moment."
