Best ways to celebrate your anniversary in Milwaukee, WI
Is your anniversary coming up and you’re wondering how you’re going to celebrate it? Well, if you’re in Milwaukee, you’ve come to one of the best cities in Wisconsin! We love the Midwest because there are many different activities that fit every couple out there. And we’ve got your itinerary planned for you. Simply pick your theme you’re looking to experience and the rest is easy.
Your anniversary, whether you’re dating, engaged, or married marks a huge milestone in your relationship and a way to reconnect with your partner.
If your anniversary happens to fall on a day you are both off work, start your morning sleeping in and heading off to brunch with your partner at Sweet Diner in the Third Ward. After you both have stuffed your bellies, take a walk around the Third Ward and browse different shops.
A fun activity to try out is creating topics and buying items for each one for your partner. For example, you could have: their favorite color, their favorite snack, a memory with them, and something they need. This is a fun challenge because it gets you thinking about your partner and remembering all the good memories about them. End your anniversary listening to live music at Blu Bar & Lounge, a stylish venue on the 23rd floor of the Pfister Hotel, and enjoy a cocktail as you take in the sweeping city skyline.
Reconnecting with your partner while enjoying the outdoors can combine romance and adventure all in one. If you live in the heart of Milwaukee, pack a picnic, grab your car, and head to Lion’s Den Gorge Nature Preserve, a 73-acre public park. Stroll through a beautiful park and get up close and personal with an amazing view of Lake Michigan. Afterwards, find a nice spot on the beach to enjoy the picnic you packed. If you’re looking to stay in the
city for the day but still want to spend time outdoors, head to the Urban Ecology Center on the East Side or rent kayaks through Milwaukee Kayak Rentals. Celebrating your anniversary in the winter season? No problem! Stay warm and enjoy nature at the Domes!
Accomplishing a hard challenge together as a couple can be rewarding and strengthen a relationship. Our favorite activities that are perfect for an anniversary are solving an escape room or laser tag. There are so many places around the Greater Milwaukee area that have fun activities that will allow you both to work together. Looking to continue the day, head to a sports event like a baseball or hockey game.
Not totally into sports? That’s okay. Throw an ax at AXE MKE or rush to the finish line at
Veloce Indoor Speedway. Another fun activity to challenge each other at is indoor rock climbing at Adventure Rock MKE. The end day with a nice dinner to allow you both to laugh at the moments you had today and the new
memories you built together.
Anniversaries can be a great time to take a break
from your busy schedules and reconnect together and having a relaxing anniversary is the perfect idea!

Or enjoy a relaxing boat cruise on the Milwaukee River. Make sure to book a boat cruise with a driver so all you have to do is sit back, relax, enjoy the scenery of the city. End your anniversary with a couple’s spa at the WELL Spa, voted Best of Milwaukee in 2022 by Milwaukee Magazine.
