Check Out Fun Date Ideas in Milwaukee and Create Amazing Memories

Whether you have a long-time significant other or are looking for a great place to take someone on a first date, there is no lack of ideas in the Cream City! There are several fun date ideas in Milwaukee, whether you like sports, food (ok, who doesn’t?), nature, or art. We rounded up our favorite selections for our list of date night ideas in Milwaukee. Who knows, you may even find a good excuse to finally ask that special someone out! 

Go to a museum

Milwaukee is bursting with museums of all sorts. The Milwaukee Art Museum is ideal for those who enjoy creativity and interpreting what they see in paintings and sculptures. Motorcycle enthusiasts definitely need to stop by the Harley Davidson Museum. Other kitschy museums make perfect date night ideas in Milwaukee, like the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum and the Museum of Make-Believe.

Drink beer


Need we say more? Although, we’d like to expand a bit. Not only is Milwaukee known for its excellent brews, but many breweries offer tours so that you can tour and sample all in one location. Favorite places for date night ideas in Milwaukee include Lakefront Brewery (ask them about their table for two!), City Lights Brewing Co., and Urban Harvest Brewing Company

Discover architecture

This idea may be a little unconventional, but Milwaukee has plenty to offer for couples who love decor, design, and architecture. For example, tour Frank Lloyd Wright’s Burnham Block to see his American System homes. Or go on the little-known tour of City Hall, which is gorgeous inside and offers impressive views of the city from above. 

Play with foam

Whether you are a cheesehead (AKA Green Bay Packers fan) or are just wondering how foam shapes are made, head to the Foamation, the Oiginal Cheesehead Factory. Not only can you see the process, but you can make your own cheesehead. Like — where else can you do that? Go home with a fantastic souvenir. It’s one of the best fun date ideas in Milwaukee for those on a first date. Plus, it’s only $25 for a tour and to DIY your cheesy foam, so it’s easy on the budget, too.

Eat at a market

Sometimes finding a place to eat can be difficult. If you’re a meat-lover and your date is vegan, finding a compromise is hard — unless you head to one of Milwaukee’s many markets. 3rd St. Market Hall has many opportunities for you and your date to pick a style of food and meet at a table to eat and converse. Of course, Milwaukee Public Market is well-known as another worthy choice for a date night (or day!). This market also offers classes, so you could build an entire date around eating and learning how to cook.

Get festive

One of the most enjoyable date ideas in Milwaukee is to experience the wonder of Christmas together. And the (we mean THE) place to do so is at Noel Light Park & Christmas Market. There is so much to do there! Look at lights, shop at the holiday market, listen to live music, and eat and drink while you are there. It’s the perfect stop for couples and first date folks alike!
