I'm going to visit Milwaukee very soon but don't know if there is a place that I can easily take picture of the skyline? Please give some advices. Thanks

Look up Bayview Park, you can see the skyline from there.

This ones is from lake level there, but if you follow the street that overlooks the park, there are some better views up there.

You'd want to be higher to see over the breakwater (i think).

Another option but I haven't taken pics is from 794, as you drive into downtown from the south its a good view, but its emergency stopping only so you'd have to take your chances.

I really like getting the skyline from pieces of eight. You don't get the entire skyline in there but you get a closer shot and the art museum looks great.

Hey Thanks, I was looking at google map and it seems Veterans Park has some pretty good spot. Or else, probably I need to make an emergency stop on 794 then...

I'm trying to find my city shots from veterans park but I can't find them. Somewhere they're on my flickr. I guess I should actually use tags, eh?

Here's a sort-of shot:

The sunset would be between the art museum and the tall building I'd guess - somewhere in there.

If you're lookign at the map on google, I was probably about 1/2 way from lincoln mem drive and the furthest point out there.

I was lurking around google map too. Yeah, I am pretty sure that I figure out where you stood. Hey, the museum of art looks pretty nice. Anyway, thanks a bunch :)
