Beer is still a big deal in Milwaukee despite the fact that most of the large breweries that once called it home have long since moved elsewhere.
There are restaurants that brew their own beer, beer gardens (which are patios on which to drink beer), beer tastings and brewery tours. How could some of the free things in the city NOT be related to beer? Believe it or not, there are a few other fun things as well.

MILWAUKEE RIVERWALK FEATURING THE BRONZE FONZ:
It spans nearly three miles along the Milwaukee River, running from the East Side, through downtown and into the Third Ward neighborhood. It goes past the Bronze Fonz, erected in 2008 when most of the cast of "Happy Days," including "The Fonz" Henry Winkler, came to Milwaukee for the dedication. Though no scenes were filmed in Milwaukee, "Happy Days" took place in Milwaukee during its TV run from 1974 to 1984. Winkler has been known to stop by the statue when visiting Milwaukee, so if you're lucky you might run into both versions of Arthur Fonzarelli. There's also 4 foot (1.2 meter) bronze statue of Gertie the Duck and her hatchlings along the Wisconsin Avenue bridge. She won worldwide fame in the 1940s, as she was trying to care for her ducklings atop a hollowed-out piling in the river.

MILWAUKEE'S LAKEFRONT:
Start on the south end of Lincoln Memorial Drive at around noon and watch the wings of the Milwaukee Art Museum, designed by famous architect Santiago Calatrava, close and reopen. About two miles (three kilometers) north, there's Bradford Beach, where you can watch volleyball, stroll along the water or catch rays. About a mile north of that is Lake Park, overlooking the lake, designed by Frederick Law Olmsted. He's the founder of landscape architecture and also the designer of New York City's Central Park. You might also catch lawn bowling clubs competing in the summer or take a walk past the North Point Lighthouse, built in 1855 and known to be the only lighthouse that's in an Olmsted urban park.
