I love going to the Wehr Nature Center. It's a little gem of nature within the hustle of suburban Milwaukee. There are many trails through diverse topography and micro climates ranging from wetland to woodland to prairie. The trails are not too long so one...More

The beauty of the Whitnall Park setting is undeniable. The Sunday brunch is a real treat especially if seated at the window. Food is served buffet style and variety is good.
