Lovely church with great views. The best part is that it's free. One thing I didn't like was all the unwelcoming signs, like be silent and dress appropriately. Other than that, it's nice.

Sharon Lynne Wilson Center for the Arts

Reviewed By Betty C

The place is nice with pretty artwork throughout the interior and some sculptures on the exterior. They have good plays and concerts; stage is good and quality sound. The seats are comfortable with plenty of legroom, I don’t thing there are any bad seats. They have the main seating area and a balcony with a great view of the stage. There is a huge parking lot so ample parking outside.

Just saw a great show last weekend. It was well organized...easy parking, comfortable seats, sat back and enjoyed the show!

In MENOMENEE FALLS, 30 km (20 miles) Northwest Milwaukee, easy with a GPS! After the expensive Museum in the famous city, we travel to this unknown town. A free tour is offered each couple of hours, last one 1:30 pm. We arrive in the last minute, and happily it was place for us (first come, first served). Mr. Greg (I think) was our guide around the engines factory. No pictures allowed. We enjoyed a lot the 70 min. visit , and all the explanations. Certainly, a Must-to-See for any who loves H-D!.

Pewaukee Lakefront Park

Reviewed By Laura M

I'm spoiled. I know I am. There's no doubt. I'm used to quiet beaches with lots of space.

For people living in the area this beach is no doubt a gem. For me though, it has too many people, you can hardly move with all the arms and legs strewn about.

Parking required crossing a busy street of two way traffic including work trucks and semis.

If I had small children I would avoid this beach unless there was 1:1 supervision with another adult to manage the cooler.

As a person without kiddos I'd avoid the beach as it's too full of people and that's just not so much my thing.

If I had to drive to a beach, this one isn't it.

Nice, clean beach with concessions. There's also an area for children to play as well as boats to rent. What I like best is the area around the beach where you can walk or bike. Beautiful walking area in the fall too!

Nixon Park

Reviewed By James T J - Pewaukee

As a resident of Hartland I often visit this park during my (infrequent) walks during the good weather months. It's an EXCELLENT park for all folks from senior citizens to kiddies. Nice "splash" area for the little ones to get wet and enjoy in the summer. Swings and gymboree type climbing and exploring areas for the kids too. Bark River runs by it and there's a nice little pond where a kid can drown worms trying to catch a fish or two.

Team Escape 262

Escape rooms are unique interactive entertainment experience where participants will attempt to solve puzzles and connect clues before time runs out. As the suspense and adrenaline builds, you will work as a team using your wits, intuition, logic and communication with team members. Escape rooms are perfect for co-workers interested in team building, couples looking for an interesting date night or a group of friends who want a challenge and a laugh.

Reviewed By Mark S

We did not book the room online. We stopped over Saturday 7:45pm. Closed no lights. They had open rooms 8:00 and 8:15, did not think they be closed. We called and they said they are open. We are standing in front of the place of business. No luck. To bad this place has high reviews. I guess next time will have to book on line first. Or maybe try an escape room downtown Milwaukee. So I can’t say it was fun. Try it and give a review. Maybe we will try someday.

Paul Bobrowitz Spectacular Sculpture

Reviewed By alibarbaraMilwaukee - Milwaukee, Wisconsin

We've been here several times and enjoy the visits. Every time I manage to see something new. I have also purchases a couple pieces of art for my own yard. They are large, heavy, and expensive, so it's not really the kind of thing you do on impulse. To browse is free. There are hundreds of metal and concrete sculptures. Everywhere you look is something amazing, and often Paul (the Sculptor/artist) is on hand to show you what he's working on and make suggestions if you're in the market for yard art.

Adventure Rock

Reviewed By dubuquemama - Dubuque, Iowa

We took a short trip to Milwaukee, our 10 year old son loves indoor rock climbing and he wanted to do that over Spring Break. We found Adventure Rock and went two times over 3 days. The staff is knowledgeable, trustworthy and kind. The rock climbing can be done in several rooms and various degrees of difficulties. They had many auto-belays and a couple of caves for bouldering. We arrived late morning, early afternoon on weekdays and it was not crowded. Hubby and sons all climbed and loved it. Very nice gym, wish there were more of these gyms.
During our mini vacation we climbed at Adventure Rock, skated on the olympic oval at the Pettit, rode the indoor mountain bike trails at Ray's. Of those activities our 10 year old loved Adventure Rock the best!
