Travel Tips from people who've been to Milwaukee
Jelly Belly Factory!!! It's a great place to tour! They give free tours and show you how things are made as you ride a "train" through the ware house. Then you get free samples and can go to the tasting bar and try any bean they make. Belly flops are beans that are stuck together and not perfect, but they still taste like jelly bellys and are much cheaper! My sister and I wait until they have their caseload sale and then go down to the factory and stock up! We can buy a case for as little as $5---and give them as gifts, take them on vacations as snacks, and have them all year round for a lot cheaper than other people buy them in stores! It's actually right before the boarder into Illinois.
The first time I went to Milwaukee I thought for sure I was going to an area that was rundown and had a lot of empty buildings from old, closed down factories. Well, I could not have been more wrong. In fact, I was quite surprised at just how beautiful the buildings in downtown are. Now, I wouldn't want to be up there in the dead of winter, but that's another story. A must see for those looking for nightlife is a little bar called the Safe House. If you don't have a password, don't worry: They have "ways" of letting you gain access.
Kopps is a custard stand that has wonderful custard! Every day they have new flavors!!! Oh my gosh so good! They also make a burger that's HUGE and so worth stopping for every single time. My family will hold off and wait to eat at Kopps--and everyone guesses what the flavor of the day is! (We even look online to see when our favorites will be out! ) This is a place you HAVE To try!
