Our staff at Krause Funeral Home loves the fall and all that Milwaukee has to offer during this most beautiful season. From unique Downtown art to festive outdoor activities, this is our big chance to enjoy the sunshine and our city’s best before colder weather sets in.
To inspire our neighbors around New Berlin, Brookfield, and beyond to get out and explore seasonal highlights, here’s our Milwaukee fall bucket list:
Take a Downtown sculpture walk.
Dynamic outdoor sculptures located in Downtown Milwaukee provide hours of laidback art viewing. These public artworks change out every year, and fall is a great time to appreciate each one up close. After strolling down Wisconsin Avenue, if you find yourself still in need of artistic inspiration, check out both the in-person and virtual exhibitions on rotation at the Milwaukee Art Museum.
Cheer on the Bucks!
After a 50-year dry spell, our Milwaukee Bucks are NBA champions again and are heading into a highly anticipated 2020-21 season. If you can’t manage to score in-person game tickets, head to a local bar or restaurant with family and friends to cheer your heart out for Wisconsin’s favorite basketball team.
Feast your eyes on fall foliage.
Come October, the leaves on Milwaukee’s trees reach peak vibrancy. Head to the iconic Boerner Botanical Gardens to take in all the fall colors. The impressive Arboretum spans over 1,000 acres of trees and shrubs organized by plant family. It’s a wonderful place to spend a few hours in the fresh air reconnecting with nature.
Go apple picking.
A favorite fall tradition in Milwaukee, picking apples is a fun activity for the whole family. With numerous orchards in and around Milwaukee, you can take your pick of places to grab a bag of the freshest fruit around.
Carve a Jack-O’-Lantern.
Whether you select a pumpkin at the local grocery store, farmers market, or pumpkin patch, this beloved tradition will have you more than ready to celebrate the year’s spookiest holiday.
Indulge in favorite seasonal treats.
If you’re a fan of Milwaukee’s frozen custard – and really, who isn’t? – consider sampling popular fall flavors including butter pecan, maple walnut, cinnamon, and maple syrup & pancakes.
