11 Things To Do in Milwaukee With Kids

When someone mentions things to do in Milwaukee, does your mind go to beer or 1970s sitcoms? “Brew City” is nationally known for nearly two centuries of beer-making by major industry names like Miller, Pabst, and Schlitz.  

Today's Milwaukee is surprisingly kid-friendly. Here are 11 things to do in Milwaukee with kids.  

Take a City Tour With Milwaukee Tours

I firmly believe in taking a city tour early in your visit. It's a great way to orient yourself to the lay of the land in a new place and get recommendations from a local. 

Explore Milwaukee's Riverwalk

Take a boat tour, rent a kayak, explore the urban paddle trails, or explore the restaurants and bars along the river walk.  

3rd Street Market Hall

From cheese curds, because, of course, to pizza to craft cocktails, whatever you want to eat is here. 

Milwaukee Is a Sports Town – Catch a Game

If you are a basketball or baseball fan, you can time your visit so you can catch a home game. Cheer for the Milwaukee Bucks in Fiserv Stadium, which is located in the heart of downtown.  

Eat, Drink, and Pet Cats at Sip & Purr Cat Cafe

Unlike many cat cafes where the “cafe” part seems an afterthought, Sip & Purr has some legit house-made baked goods, including vegan and gluten-free options and a full coffee menu. 

Adventure Rock

If your answer to the question of “Should we go indoor rock climbing?” is “Yes, please!” then Adventure Rock is the place to be. Located just outside downtown Milwaukee, this indoor rock climbing gym has the goods.
