Milwaukee originally became a city in 1846 and remains the largest city in the state of Wisconsin to this day. As part of a larger urban center that spans through neighboring states, it is a heavily populated city that sits on the shore of beautiful Lake Michigan in northern United States.
One thing that this city is very proud of is the wide variety of ethnic people who have made Milwaukee their home. This is represented by various ethnic enclaves throughout the city, where locals and visitors alike enjoy strolling through shops filled with food and products special to each ethnic identity.
While some people go to large cities to shop at luxurious boutiques and upscale boulevards, others enjoy shopping the dusty streets of urban centers to purchase rare finds such as what is available in these ethnic enclaves in Milwaukee.
One of the most popular places for shopping is the Old World Third Street. This area was is a unique blend of shops and eating joints that reflect both the older traditions of the city and the modern influences of all cultures.
The city is probably most well known for the Milwaukee Brewers professional baseball team. They play at the innovative Miller Park ballpark, where the building is actually designed to open and close the roof according to weather patterns.
There are also a variety of art galleries and museums situated around the city for visitors to enjoy.
