A Kid-Friendly Milwaukee Itinerary, Courtesy of Children’s Book Characters ‘Lulu & Rocky’

These literary fox kit cousins have a knack for finding fun stuff to do, so we asked them to put together an itinerary.

[alert type=white ]Lulu & Rocky in Milwaukee, by Port Washington author Barbara Joosse and Los Angeles/Milwaukee illustrator Renee Graef, is the first of the Our City Adventures series published by Sleeping Bear Press.[/alert]

➸ Go to the Third Ward, where there’s a big market and lots of little shops. You can see a show or buy cool clothes.


➸ Head over to the RiverWalk, where you’ll find the very best place for a selfie: the Bronze Fonz. Ayyy!

99 Days of Summer: Here’s Your 2019 Guide to Maximal Milwaukee Summer Fun


➸ At Discovery World, learn about Lake Michigan, which is HUGE. You can even pet a big fish called a sturgeon.

➸ Nearby is the Milwaukee Art Museum. Rocky talked to a quiet janitor there. Turns out, he was a statue!

➸ A fish fry is a must. At Lakefront Brewery, everyone eats together at big, long tables.

➸ Northpoint Lighthouse is 84 steps tall. When you get to the top, look down and see teeny tiny Milwaukee.

➸ Veterans Park is a great place to smell the sunshine. Fly a kite, ride a boat, rollerskate or pedal a Surrey bike.
