“The great place by a great lake!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

The best place in the Midwest for music, food, people watching and views of Lake Michigan. From Summerfest, Polish Fest, German Fest, Festa Italiana, Irish Fest to top name acts at the Marcus amphitheater, the Henry Maier Festival park is teh go to location for Summer fun in Milwaukee. Any Summer weekend in MIlwaukee should not be spent without a visit to the grounds. Parking is available nearby and admissions to all the festivals often come with discounts or free passes for early birds.

“Summerfest, Festa, Irish Fest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

If you are in Milwaukee during a festival - go!!! Especially Summerfest. Where else can you see a variety of bands for about $15! Enjoy beer from Lakefront Brewery and foods from great Milwaukee restaurants. Add some sun and a lake. Does not get much better !!
