It is pretty cool. The city of Milwaukee has a canal/river that runs through the downtown, so you can take a boat tour that talks about the city’s architectural history as we head out into a very small portion of Lake Michigan. On a summer’s day Lake Michigan can be cold as shit but it is still fun.
But I want to because I can't tell you how to get anywhere in NYC. One of the great joys of chaperoning class trips was that I got to see NYC landmarks with my kids.
