Milwaukees location on the western shore of Lake Michigan is more than worthy of exploration this month and June 11 aka Great Outdoors Day is rife with reasons to get out and enjoy nature in all its glory:
Hike Seven Bridges Trail in Grant Park, boasting two miles of wooded trails and paved paths plus panoramic views of the lake from a bordering bluff.
Climb the Northpoint Lighthouse in Lake Park for sweeping views of the estuary and city beyond.
Paddle your way through a trio of rivers (Milwaukee, Menomonee and Kinnickinnic) and catch breathtaking views in the process.
