Visiting the spectacular China Lights exhibit was worth dealing with the throngs of eager attendees who also marveled at the creative display of clever and historically inspired scenes. There is signage to describe each area, but the downloadable app allowed more detail. There were dance and martial arts performers and music adding to the feel of the experience. Parking in remote lots was aided by shuttle bus transport. I would suggest that at the entrance gate that there could be separate lines for persons who had prepaid vouchers. All in all a delightful evening.

Lightspeed Go-Karts & Laser Tag

Welcome to Lightspeed Entertainment! The Milwaukee area's favorite high-energy, go-kart and laser tag destination!

Reviewed By kirstenliv - Big Bend, Wisconsin

We've been taking our four boys here for years. The staff is always super nice and the laser tag is awesome (I even play!). The go karts are electric and just fast enough to be fun for all ages but not so fast it scares the mom (me). There are also younger kid cars that only go 8 mph for the kiddos. (my 5 year old LOVES that he can drive his own car). I recommend the groupon for unlimited everything. You can spend Hours there on a cold winter day.

Wehr Nature Center

Reviewed By jtg1961 - Ocala, Florida

The trails here are well marked and color coded so you can't get lost. All sorts of different habitats are experienced here. A nice clean air conditioned nature center building with restrooms and a souvenir shop. Plenty of parking but you'll have to pay a few dollars and post the receipt on your dashboard.

Reviewed By John R - Bluffton,SC

We are visiting our long time best friends in Greendale, Wisconsin and want a friendly, fun place to relax and unwind. Our friends suggest the Vintage 38 in Historic, Downtown Greendale. What impressed us most was the friendliness of the staff and the care they took to please their customers. The wine selection was superb and the Craft Beers were a beer lovers dream!

Outside seating is a great way to enjoy the wonderful summer weather and table service is provided. Our long time good friends chose to sit outside and we enjoyed a wonderful, memorable summer evening.

Wisconsin has long been regarded as a very friendly, "Down Home" State. Vintage 38 is a "Down Home" Wisconsin, Wine Bar, with outstanding service and an excellent selection of fine wines and craft beers!

When in the greater Milwaukee, Greendale area, Vintage 38 will impress you as it has our good friends in the past and now, from their good friends from South Carolina.

Reviewed By ALnG_Photo - Milwaukee, Wisconsin

The West Allis farmers market is by far one of the best! This market is much more superior to the indoor produce section of the best Sendick's. The freshness and quality of the food being sold is some awesome stuff. The sellers are very friendly and happy to educate you on their products! From farm to your table!

Whitnall Park

Reviewed By Genevieve K

This is a very large park that seems to have something any time of year. There are lots and lots of trails - some covered with woodchips and some board walks. There is a golf course that would be of interest to the golfers. And, of course, in the summer there are the botanical gardens. Lots of places for a picnic. And if it continues, the incredible China Lights in the winter. It's truly a wonderful country experience only about 20 min. from downtown Milwaukee.

Reviewed By burghughes - Greendale, Wisconsin

We had foreign exchange students staying with us and stopped by the visitor center to give them a better idea about the history of the place they would be staying. We found a soft cover book for a reasonable price that provided great details on the village's history. Greendale is a great place to spend a weekend especially during the Holidays and the Welcome Center is the best place to start

The building itself is a work of art, especially since it's perched right on the lake shore of Lake Michigan! Visiting would be enjoyable just walking around the grounds! But then you have the added experience of going into the art museum! What a wonderful way to spend a day!!

Chudnow Museum of Yesteryear

A Milwaukee nonprofit dedicated to giving visitors a glimpse into Milwaukee life between the world wars with authentic items displayed in store settings. Handicap-accessible guided tours are offered at no additional charge, and there is free off-street parking behind the building.

Reviewed By NoDaker52 - Fairfax, Virginia

I visited this fine museum with college friends while exploring Milwaukee. What a find! Mr. Chudnow's extensive collection of memorabilia transports the museum visitor back in time to the late 1800s through 1970. The rotating exhibits showcase everyday life in Milwaukee including a barbershop complete with a speakeasy from the Prohibition Era to a doctor's office, a movie theater, a grocery store and a pharmacy that legally dispensed drugs considered illegal today.

We enjoyed every minute of this tour guided by the museum director Steve. I highly recommend including a trip to the Chudnow Museum when you visit Milwaukee.
