Make the Most of Your Wisconsin Summer
Wisconsin winters are tough, but every Wisconsinite receives a reward for putting up with below-zero temperatures and snowstorms in May: a beautiful, refreshing summer. Cities across the state put on large and small events to help us take full advantage of our summer months.
If you live in the Milwaukee area, you can gather some friends together and reserve a seat on a docent-led trolley tour to learn about Milwaukee's new downtown sculptures. Or visit Harbor House, near the Milwaukee Art Museum, on Sunday and Monday nights for free live music.
The Bandshell in Pennoyer Park (which is very familiar to residents of St. Catherine Commons in Kenosha who live right across the street) hosts a free Kenosha Pops Concert every Wednesday. Kenosha's Civil War Museum hosts a free summer lecture series on varying, interesting topics.
Madison-area Wisconsinites have a plethora of outdoor events to enjoy including Concerts on the Square, farmer's markets, and patio concerts. The Olbrich Botanical Gardens is a favorite for Hyland Campus residents (pictured above).
Seniors in the Park, Whitewater's senior center group, always has well-attended indoor and outdoor events. A golf league at Oak Ridge Golf Course in Milton was started in April, but seniors can join any time (page 28).
Carpool to events with your friends or share with your loved ones and make it a family outing. At the very least, make sure you get some fresh air outside and make it a point this summer to enjoy the nice weather (with sun protection and water, of course)!
