Just got back from a vacation in Texas, and Local Guides were very helpful. Local Guides and local residents: What would you recommend to someone visiting the area? Anything is fair game!

Level 5 - sweet!
I earned 500 points by sharing my local knowledge on Google Maps, and now I'm a Level 5 Local Guide. With great power, comes great responsibility… ask me how it all works!

Well, I hope everyone had a Memorial Day weekend filled with reflection and time with family. The end of the weekend marks the "official" start of Summer in the area! Lots to do around here!

What's your favorite summer activity in the Milwaukee area?

The finalists, chosen from among more than 1,000 entries, were unveiled during a Saturday evening ceremony at City Hall. The winner will be announced on June 14, which is Flag Day.

For you local guides who haven't gotten to Level 4 yet. I could take or leave the space - I don't need it. I also think that there is some incentive to do "Good place!" reviews just to get the TB of space. At any rate, if you want to get the free TB, get moving!

Just made it today. I don't need 1 TB either, but I was too close to it not to at least try and get it. :-)

With summer in full swing, it's time to get out and explore! There are some new additions to the Hank Aaron trail, several new shops opening in Walkers Point, and - of course - on a day like today, it's always cooler by the lake!

Family dilemma: Go to a movie or get outdoors?

How about both? Here's when and where:
A growing number of communities in the Milwaukee area put on free outdoor movies — sometimes a one-off event, other times longer programs.

Typical Waffle House fare. Like the rest, a very nice wait staff. Food was good and service was good. Recommended if you like Waffle House.

This place was recommended to me by a local, and it didn't disappoint! Great tasting fries, and the BBQ sandwiches are the best I've ever had. Be sure to add a little extra sauce!

Fantastic place to take the kids. The displays are well done, and there are plenty of learning opportunities.

Bottom line, this place is great! Fried chicken and chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes, rolls, all served family style. Great atmosphere and excellent food!

Good place if you're looking for value. Did have elevator problems several times during my stay, and Internet wasn't the greatest.
