My friend and I live in Milwaukee, and we just found out about the Villa Terrace, so we planned a day to see it. It was beautiful. The Villa itself, is very old, but the view from the terrace was amazing. Of course, it's Lake Michigan. The landscape is very lovely, and well maintained. There is water that glides down the front steps to a little pool at the bottom. If you can't do the stairs to the gardens below, there is an elevator that takes you down, and back up again. The view looking up from below, is another gorgeous. And talk about a peaceful place. I could have sat there all day and been content. I plan on going back there in the Spring to see the crab apple trees in bloom.
Of course there are museum pieces to look at inside, but the terrace was by far my favorite place. I think more people in Milwaukee, and out of town guests to our city, should make it a stop on their travels. It is a truly wonderful find.
