©2008 Ellen Barone. Milwaukee Art Museum

I went to Milwaukee expecting to return home with photos of Harley-Davidsons and beer. But, like many first-time visitors, I was pleased to discover a wealth of urban pleasures in this delightful Great Lake city. For instance, the spectacular Milwaukee Art Museum designed by famed Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava. Perched at the water’s edge, this is a must-stop for visiting shutterbugs - inside and out.  And, after you’ve filled a memory card - or two - there’s Harley’s and beer!
