A few things to do in a short period of time

We will be in Milwaukee the weekend of May 31-June 2 for a wedding. We are staying at the Hilton City Center. We will be tied up with wedding festivities much of the time, but will probably have a few hours Friday afternoon and Saturday morning to do a little exploring. Any suggestions as to what we might want to check out in that general vicinity? We will have a car, but only short jaunts would work with our time frame. Thanks in advance.

The Harley Davidson Museum is unique to Milwaukee and interesting even if you are not a motorcycle enthusiast. The Milwaukee Art Museum is worth a visit if for nothing but the unique architecture. The Milwaukee Public Museum is only a few blocks from the Hilton.

If the weather is nice you could just take a quick drive/walk along the Lakefront.

If you have any interest in breweries, distilleries or cheese making, you may want to consider: Lakefront Brewery, MillerCoors Brewing, Great Lakes Distillery and/or Clock Tower Creamery . . . all in the city.
