The Southeast Metro Region
Home > Things to Do > Southeast Metro Region

Let's start with the city of Milwaukee and work our way north. Milwaukee is a gem among urban landscapes. It rests on the shores of Lake Michigan and each year throws a summer-long bash kicking off with Summerfest, the world's largest outdoor musical festival, and extending into the late summer with ethnic festivals. The Milwaukee Art Museum, with its Calatrava-designed addition that looks as though it could take flight, is literally an icon for the city's vibrant arts community. Brewery tours, charter fishing, and outings to the Harley-Davidson headquarters are on the must-do list for lots of visitors.

Just outside the city, you're transported to historic towns, with artists galore, and small villages that speak to a simpler time. The small town of Cedarburg is known as the "Antiques Capital of Wisconsin," but this historic town offers much more. All of downtown is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. One popular destination is Cedar Creek Settlement, a collection of specialty shops, galleries, restaurants, blacksmith and the Cedar Creek Winery.

Continuing north, Port Washington, the Little City of Seven Hills is tranquil, abundant in eateries, and friendly in nature. Climb to the Historic 1860 Lighthouse Station via one of Port Washington’s distinctive hillside stairways. Stroll through Sauk Creek Preserve, bike, hike, or rollerblade the Interurban Trail, attend a maritime festivals featuring the tall ships that would have come and gone from this harbor in its early days.

To the southwest is Eagle, site of Old World Wisconsin. With its historic farm and village buildings, this museum is the largest of its kind in the world dedicated to the history of rural life.
