October is a special month in Milwaukee County. Our parks, backyards, and even our downtown gain the fiery accents of fall color, inviting tourists and residents to step out and enjoy the autumn weather. Milwaukee is a wonderful city to explore by foot. Whether you are a jogger, a hiker, or a stroller, our town has tremendous parks and neighborhoods. Milwaukee County's art community is very active this month. The ballet and live theatre companies are presenting beautiful shows. Fall Gallery Night & Day offers an intimate glimpse inside the local art community. At the Milwaukee County Zoo, cooler weather brings many of the animals out, amid stunning color. Our world class parks and golf courses are particularly beautiful this time of year and the streets downtown are lovely to walk down with a cup of coffee from our local roasters. As always, sites such as the Art Museum and Public Museum offer excellent options for an interesting day out. Key Milwaukee is an excellent resource for planning your time. No matter what you choose to do in Milwaukee County, I hope you enjoy your time with us. You will find Milwaukee's lakefront an ideal place to begin. Lake Michigan's shoreline is naturally beautiful, and thoughtful leaders accentuated the beauty by making sure vast expanses remain open public spaces. Museums, memorials, and the festival grounds are great walking destinations along the lakefront. Milwaukee has unique neighborhoods and commercial districts to discover. Consider a walk through Bay View, the Third Ward, Martin Luther King Drive, or Brady Street to get a better understanding of what makes Milwaukee special. There are a number of trails in the city. Along one of them, the Hank Aaron trail in the Menomonee Valley, you can walk to the city's newest park, Three Bridges. When you're on foot in Milwaukee you will find lots of people out there with you, enjoying every step.
