Milwaukee Lakefront & Summerfest
The lakefront and its festivals are two jewels in the crown that is Milwaukee. For 11 days in late June and early June, the Henry Maier Festival Grounds are home to Summerfest, the world’s largest music festival. Almost all musical styles are represented here. It’s a big event with big headliners. This year featured The Rolling Stones, Keith Urban, Carrie Underwood, Stevie Wonder, and Ed Sheeran–just a small sampling of the acts.
The festival grounds line the Lake Michigan shoreline. Lakeshore State Park features a small marina and hiking and biking trails. On a hot summer day, this is the place to be–always cooler by the lake!
