wow guys, some great replies there, thanks ever so much. Lots to take in.
Yes we are staying downtown, near government transit station. We're leaving our grown up kids in the UK, so have plenty of options. I like my beer and history. As for sport, well i love all sorts, including hockey, football [nfl, cfl], volleyball, as for baseball ....... well i watch some of the highlights on line, so would like to experience a game.
the boat trips sound great, will probably give that a go and as for music fest .... i'll go look it up and see what that is all about.
we'll be eating out and about town .. so the tour idea sounds perfect. We also welcome ideas and recommendations of where to eat out at night
I must say that this friendly response, is a great advert for the citizens of Milwaukee. Thanks everyone .... keep the ideas coming
