Milwaukee is the largest city in the State of Wisconsin, the 31st most populous city in the United States, and 39th most populous region in the United States. Located on the southwestern shore of Lake Michigan. Start in the Historic Third Ward, where historic factories and warehouses are now home to trendy shops. For your next day of shopping, head north to Historic Cedarburg or west to Wauwatosa. Both villages are filled with historic charm and, of course, great boutique shopping.
