Destination: Milwaukee

Toss out the diet: This is the home of beer, brats and frozen custard. While its history was indeed built on beer and breweries, Milwaukee also features a staggering array of ethnic eateries, unusual attractions and fine hotels. But most folks think of beer and brats--and Milwaukee doesn't disappoint fans of either.
