We pick you up at a newer venue in Milwaukee’s Brewery District that is sure to be decked out with the warm glow of Christmas lights. Our guide will welcome you with 3D glasses to transform your experience. We will then board our bus or cruiser depending on your group size to set out into the night.

We’ll take you to some of the most popular Christmas light destinations the city has to offer including; Catalano Square, Zeidler Park, Pere Marquette Park, Cathedral Square, and the Hoan Bridge, with a whole lot of magical, twinkly lights in between.
