The afternoon will begin with lunch at Mader's German Restaurant located on Historic Old World Third Street.

Few places anywhere give a traveler the sense of having found the soul of a city.” You will enjoy a wonderful German buffet with a variety of German food including apple strudel for dessert.    

Following lunch, you will enjoy a tour featuring highlights of the historical and architectural areas of Milwaukee. In addition to the downtown business district, the tour will include many of Milwaukee's neighborhoods including the East Side, the lakefront and the Historic Third Ward. The tour includes views of famous architect-designed houses including some by Frank Lloyd Wright and the history of how Beer Barons made Milwaukee famous.

The last stop will be at MillerCoors Brewing Company, where you will experience over 155 years of brewing history with a modern twist. You will be able to view the brewing process up close, see, and sample how beer is made in Milwaukee. Commemorative photos, gift shop keepsakes and an unforgettable exploration of large-scale brewing await you!
