This is my hometown. If you were here just for one day, you could successfully hit all of these in 24 hours and have a good feel of the city in winter or summer.

Finished in 1895, the Milwaukee City Hall was then the largest inhabited building in the United States. Open to the public, looking up inside the building is quite a sight. Perhaps the Hyatt Regency got the atrium idea from this building?

The Calling," by Mark di Suvero, is within sight of the Milwaukee Art Museum in a nice urban park. This photo was taken on a nice blue day, but the orange is quite welcome on winter grey days. It is the best known of Milwaukee's public art.

The Milwaukee Art Museum is located on the lakefront and has become a symbol of the city. The wings move at noon every day that winds are below 30 mph. So if you want to visit, try and time if for that event and wait on the bridge that can be seen...
