Destinations / North America

One of the things Milwaukee is best known for is its beer. Consider traveling to this Midwest town with your adult kids to explore everything the city has to offer beer fans.


If you’re interested in beer for its taste or its inebriating effects, Miller Brewing Company probably isn’t on your list of places to visit. This brewery is worth touring, however, if only for its impact on the history of brewing in America. Frederick Miller settled in Milwaukee in 1855 with yeast he brought from Germany and, since then, Miller has called it home.


Moving into more specialized beer, first on the list is Lakefront Brewery, notable because it offers the country’s first USDA-approved gluten-free beer. The brewery offers a ton of year-round, seasonal and special release draughts as well as the two gluten-free options.


Next up is Milwaukee Brewing Company. This one is more of a standard, yet high-quality craft brewery. The brewery has a beer for every season and taste, but doesn’t pull any punches with gimmicks or any singular specialty. A wide array of seasonal releases complement a robust year-round slate of beer. When you visit Milwaukee Brewing Company, make sure to check out the destination local series. These artisanal beers are the brewery’s gems. Gin O-Gii won a gold award at the 2016 World Beer Cup.


Third Space Brewing ticks all the right boxes for a family spot to enjoy a great beer. Third Space gets its name from its own designation as the place away from work and home to disengage and enjoy a beer in the company of people you love. Third Space Brewing has a number of well-loved beers and a few spaces to indulge. The brewery’s beer garden, specifically, is family- and dog-friendly, making it the perfect candidate for a visit even if you are traveling with kids.


If American cuisine is on your mind, stop at Good City Brewing. Good City Brewing has two locations and distributes in cans, making it easy to take some with you if the mood strikes. In addition to great beer, Good City Brewing offers entire lunch and dinner menus, with everything from snacks to cheeseboards, to salads and sandwiches to desserts. Make sure to fill up before indulging.

Avoid the Crowds with a Second-City Honeymoon

Second-city travel is one of the hottest trends of 2020. It involves avoiding the over-crowded, over-touristed cities that are historically top travel destinations and visiting nearby, lesser-known destinations instead. Travelers are learning that, while well-known destinations are popular for a reason, less-popular cities also have plenty to offer with fewer crowds and cheaper costs.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
