Milwaukee is a vibrant city with plenty to offer for a Midwestern vacation. The locale has a rich Native American history, delicious cuisine and a vast array of breweries. It's also Wisconsin's largest city, and visitors generally need four wheels to traverse the expansive metropolis. So it's a good thing that Dollar Rent A Car has a vast array of affordable Milwaukee rental cars and even offers additional Milwaukee discounts. Then, traverse the city to find these free sites:
Basilica of St. Josaphat
Get in a Milwaukee car rental and head to the historic Lincoln Village on the south side of Milwaukee to visit the Basilica of St. Josaphat. The church is a grand display of architecture, designed at the beginning of the 20th century in the Polish Cathedral style. It's a place for local Franciscans to gather in prayer, but the institution welcomes people of all denominations to delight in the splendor of the structure and learn about the deep-rooted history of the parish.
Milwaukee County Zoo
Bring the family down to the Milwaukee County Zoo, which offers free admission on several dates throughout the year thanks to funding by local organizations. Park your Milwaukee car rental on a side street to avoid the $12 parking fee, then enter the zoo grounds to find unique habitats spread across 200 acres of land containing more than 2,000 creatures, including mammals, birds, fish and reptiles. One of the most popular is the jaguar exhibit, which houses a family of these felines including sibling cubs B'alam and Zean. The institution also hosts special events throughout the year, including wildlife shows and educational seminars.
