Matt and I spent our Labor Day weekend exploring the beautiful state of Wisconsin. We’ve been a few times before but we really wanted to spend some time in Madison and Milwaukee to see if we could see ourselves moving to either of the cities next summer.
And I think we could!
We arrived in Milwaukee around 5 on Saturday and headed to my friends Sara’s house. We changed clothes and set out for our city tour.
First stop, water!
There are a few things on my must-have list for the city that we move to. And number one is water. I love the Midwest way of life but the New Englander in me needs water!
Lake Michigan kind of looks like an ocean!
Regardless, it makes a beautiful backdrop for a Christmas photo!
We spent a little bit of time walking around and checking out the architecture.
And driving down Brady Street.
We took a quick tour through the UWM campus.
Until we stumbled upon a Trader Joe’s.
Post Trader Joe’s we headed over to Solly’s. According to my research Solly’s is the home of the butter burger, a famous Milwaukee foodie find. But after arriving we were told they closed at 8. And it was 7:59.
So we turned around and headed back to Bayshore to find some food. We had our hearts set on burgers so we went with a burger/bar joint called Bar Louie’s.
I ordered a turkey burger that was complete with pepper jack and cheddar cheese, mango salsa, and a jerk sauce, topped with some greens and roasted red peppers.
With fries galore!
Sometimes you just need a good old fashioned burger and fries!
Post dinner we sprung for some famous Kopp’s custard. Naturally I got the flavor of the day: Peanut Butter Chocolate custard.
Custard, an ocean look alike, and a Trader Joe’s? Where do I sign my lease?
