5 Reasons I Love Milwaukee: Eddee Daniel

Through human creation, natural habitation and theatrical visions; Art fills the city.

We asked writer and April 2017 issue contributor Eddee Daniel to share with us the reasons he loves Milwaukee. Here are his picks:

  1. Lake Michigan. Not only does Milwaukee have public beaches and parkland for a front yard in its downtown but also miles of lakefront parks that stretch the length of Milwaukee County.

  1. Four rivers. All four of Milwaukee’s rivers—the Milwaukee, Menomonee, Kinnickinnic and Root—have been endowed with parkways that enable citizens to hike and bike long distances in natural settings.
  1. Calatrava. The newly improved Milwaukee Art Museum is the place to go to for outstanding art, and even after 16 years the Calatrava wing with its kinetic roof still seems like a miracle.
  1. The Domes. The Mitchell Park Conservatory is the best place to go when the weather is lousy; they need to be repaired!
  1. The theater scene. Milwaukee has so many theatrical offerings it’s impossible to keep up with them all: the Milwaukee Repertory Theater, Pabst Theater, Milwaukee Theater, to name a few.
