Brewery tours are the perfect activity with a group of friends, because chances are you'll learn something, be highly entertained, and drink beer all along the way. Lakefront has the funniest tour guides, while MKE Brewing gives you unlimited beer. There's a tour available for every type of beer drinker, and they're all cheap.
Bar hop along the main drinking strips
If you're not into the brewery thing, don't worry, we are professional drinkers around here. There are a few great neighborhoods for bar hopping, all with different vibes. Water Street is practically frat row, 2nd Street is full of hot spot bars, and Riverwest is amazing dive bar central. Grab an Uber and take your pick.
Eat custard everywhere you can
While other cities have frozen custard, we're the only ones to really have an actual custard culture. Plan a self-guided tour of all the best spots, starting at neon-clad stand Leon's. Then head west to Gilles, the first stand in the area, and ending at Kopp's where you can experience the flavor of the day nirvana.
Our horticultural Domes, the three boobs jutting out of the landscape on the south side, are much beloved but also falling apart. Now's a great time to visit so they can shore up their repair budget and keep the Domes open. The jungle dome and desert dome are always the same -- minus new plant growth, obviously -- but the show dome changes seasonally, so you’re guaranteed to get something new and different.
