|Ranked #1 in Milwaukee on tripadvisor|
|Plenty of motorcycle parking|
We also waited in line for 45 minutes to take an elevator inside the Allen Bradley clock tower. This is the most scenic view you're going to get in Milwaukee. US Bank building is higher but its windows are blocked by the US Bank signs so all you see are the corner windows. From the clock you can see in all directions, including the Hoan bridge which is my husband's newest engineering project. Huge chunks of it were falling so they are doing a renovation. Omar loved the binoculars they provided. It was the perfect kind of day for seeing the city!

We also took a peek at the Mackie building whose second floor is the grain exchange room with soaring ceilings, frescoes, marble...everything a gorgeous building needs! Then went to the Wisconsin Club gazebo, the Denis Sullivan schooner, and the old Pabst brewery that is being renovated. We toured a future hotel that will have the old brewery equipment in the center with skylights and rooms built around it. Such vision they have for an old place. Overall it was a great day. Thanks to all the volunteers and Historic Milwaukee, Inc. that made it possible.
