4. Frozen custard is pretty much life-changing
It’s not ice cream, and it’s not gelato -- it’s custard, the wonderful dense frozen dessert made with the addition of eggs. And whether you get it at Kopp’s (the popular favorite), Oscar’s, Leon’s (cash only!), or Gilles, you’ll be able to check another item off the bucket list that you didn’t even know you had. Let’s get fat together!
5. Good luck parking anywhere
There’re approximately 100 parking spots for 500,000+ people in Milwaukee. Even “calling in” your plates to avoid getting an overnight parking ticket sometimes doesn’t work (no parking on city streets between 2-6am here -- an easy way for the city to pocket $20!). Parking enforcement in the Mil is borderline absurd, and it does its job very, very well. There never seems to be enough parking Downtown, where you’ll find lost companions driving aimlessly, eyes glazed over looking for that ONE car that's crazy enough to be giving up its spot.
