I'm a Brazilian living in Chicago for 2 months. Milwaukee is close and looks like to be a great local to visit, so I want your advice.
What's the best places to go and things to do around the town?

This weekend we have the Milwaukee Rally going on at various Harley Davidson dealerships as well as the Harley Davidson Museum. We also have Laborfest with things like a car show going on at the lakefront on Labor Day. There is so much going on as summer comes to an end after this weekend.

I'd suggest checking out Lake Front Brewery on a Friday night. It's one of the better micro-brews in the region and they play live polka music as well (only Friday).

If you like museums, we have the Harley Davidson, Milwaukee Art Museum, and the Milwaukee Public Museum--check their sites for free days. Then there's the Domes if you need to warm up a bit.
One of my favorite places is the Urban Ecology Center, it has 3 locations, is free, and has access to some great park trails as well as rental equipment like snowshoes.
If you're a beer drinker, also consider Cafe Benelux (LFB rocks, too). Cute shops n such can be found on Brady Street or in Bayview.
Feel free to message me if you have specifics things you'd like to see :)

I am considering transferring to this school as a junior...thoughts anyone? What are the best neighborhoods to live in?

Shoot for East Side or River West. Bay shore is also nice, but expensive. In any case, no matter where you are, there's likely an easy bus route to campus. Milwaukee has a pretty great bus system.

Shorewood (chic, almost suburban), Eastside (nightlife, students, yuppies), Downtown (yuppy), Riverwest (punk, hippy, artists, musicians) are all in walking, biking, busing distance. The differences are really cultural between the neighborhoods. Visit and see where you feel most at home.

Eastside / East-town are definitely the best places to live if you're an active person. If you're less active then Shorewood is a solid choice. Not sure why people are recommending Riverwest to you as it's more on the dangerous side.

I am going to visit Milwaukee in August but I'm only stopping by for one day and will be taking a night bus to Minneapolis. Does anybody know/have recommendations for where I could store my bag for the day?
Anyone willing to let me leave it in their house?

Although I grew up around the Milwaukee suburbs, After an over a decade journey, I am back in the area for an extended period of time. I however don't know much of anything - and could use a heads up on good places, both bars as well as to dance - a bit of clubs, but not too crowded, and with a good crowd (mid/late 20's). A good place to meet people. I lived in Los Angeles for about a decade alone and am not looking for something all hyped up as it is there on the strip. A place with a little dance floor space where the people are friendly is all I ask.

Checking on this again - perhaps extending the area. I am wondering if I haven't gotten responses because they just don't exist around this area. Any recommendations for west Milwaukee, Germantown, Menomonee Falls, Sussex, West Allis, Wauwatosa, and other little cities within a 20 mile radius of Waukesha?

I'm Marc. Since I moved to Fairbanks to study sea ice, I miss sailing a lot. I was thinking to take advantage of being in Milwaukee late May for a conference to go sailing one evening on Michigan Lake. Does have somebody any advice to do it, or even better have any willingness to take me sailing ?
I contact the yacht club a few weeks ago if their is any week race, but without any success yet.
Allen Poulin , Arlington, USA, 2 months ago
Hi Marc. I live in the Milwaukee area. I have been wanting to get out on Lake Michigan for a bit of sailing too. I do not know if it will work out to join you in sailing, but I will look into it. Message me.
