Hands down the Henry Maier Festival Park is the best ever! We roamed the grounds for 4 days during the Irish Festival and haven't a single complaint. Well done Milwaukee!

This park, located on Lake Michigan has permanent bathrooms, not sani-kans, permanent buildings to house restaurants serving foods. Different ethnic festivals run each weekend through fall. We attended the Italian one. 5 stages for performers, lots of eating places, artisan booths, midway on the point and fireworks nightly. City provides free bus transportation to parking lots and area hotels.

It cost us $10 to enter but coupons were available from local places such as pizza places.

I've made it an annual event to go to Summerfest with some friends. We pick an act we want to see and spend the whole day at the Summerfest grounds. There are always many things to see/do for the whole family, though in the evenings, I'd suggest limiting it to the 16+ crowd. There are often discounts, so be certain to check the website to get all the info. This year, we took a bus from a Park n ride near I894 and didn't have to deal with the parking mess at the grounds.

You're in for an experience if you've never been to Summerfest. The worlds largest music festival! Don't miss this event in Milwaukee. Great location along the lakefront and amazing bands (many for no additional cost). The crowds get insane when the sun goes down, but thats part of the fun.
