The ENA guide for emergency nurses visiting Milwaukee


Education and networking are the primary focus while attending the Fall Regional Symposium. However, having some fun is critical to keeping you refreshed for your profession. Check out ENA’s top-five list of things to do in Milwaukee — from the obvious to the not so obvious.


  1. Harley-Davidson Museum: Milwaukee is the birthplace of Harley-Davidson. Check out the history of the iconic “potato-cycle” and see the production models from vintage to modern eras of one of the most recognizable brands in motor vehicles.
  2. Milwaukee Brewery & Distillery Tours: There’s no need to fear, Milwaukee’s got your beer. If you are interested in trying suds from local brands and brewers, for as little as $10 you can get a tour and a taste from the taproom.
  3. Mars Cheese Castle: One of Zagat’s top spots in Wisconsin, you cannot pass up the chance for cheese. A short drive to Kenosha will get you beer, wine, baked goods, and of course, cheese fit for royalty. It is a castle, after all.
  4. Pabst Mansion: Not everything in Milwaukee is about beer…sometimes it’s beer-adjacent. Take a stroll through an award-winning historic museum and architectural landmark of Milwaukee that also happens to be the family home of Captain Frederick Pabst who at one point was the leader of the world’s largest brewing company.
  5. Hangman Tours: Milwaukee is apparently scarier than you’d think. From ghost tours to visiting the homes of some of the darker figures in history, you’ll find yourself part of the supernatural (if not super creepy).

As an honorable mention, you can also try your luck at the Potawatomi Hotel & Casino. Play big, win big.
