Stay near the top things to do in Wauwatosa and Milwaukee

Conveniently located just off I-41, the Radisson hotel places you within easy reach of the area’s best things to do. Hours of fun await in downtown Milwaukee, where you can shop for artisanal goods at the Milwaukee Public Market or peruse the eclectic art galleries in the Historic Third Ward. Be sure to set aside some time for classic attractions like the Harley-Davidson Museum and American Family Field (formerly Miller Park), home of the Milwaukee Brewers baseball team. Since the Wisconsin State Fair takes place less than five miles from our hotel, festivals like Summerfest, Italian Fest, Irish Fest, and Polish Fest are all within 15 minutes of the Radisson. For fun even closer to the hotel, stroll the streets of Wauwatosa to admire the city’s Victorian-era homes or shop for accessories at Mayfair Mall, located across the street.
