HISTORY OF CITY TOURS

Our History

Originally from a small town in Southwestern, WI, Meghan moved to Milwaukee in 2005. She fell in love with the city and quickly saw that there was far more to Milwaukee than meets the eye. She especially enjoyed that fact that while Milwaukee is the largest city in the state, it also has a small feel to it. You are “pretty much guaranteed to run into someone you know anytime you go out”! 

The excitement of learning more about her new surroundings never really wore off and eventually translated to her wanting to show others all that Milwaukee had offer. Meghan launched City Tours MKE in 2013 more as a hobby doing Haunted History Tours, but seeing the enthusiasm and interest of her guests for the city grow and expand, so did the business. She loves to hear out-of-town guests say that they could see themselves living in Milwaukee as much as she loves watching locals have their eyes opened to a whole new Milwaukee that they had never really seen before! Meghan’s small-town roots bring a certain “down home” feeling which trickles down through the City Tours MKE culture. When you tour with Meghan, you will quickly feel like you are with an old friend. 

Meghan’s personal desire to be more eco-friendly is also deeply imbedded within City Tours MKE, including the introduction of emissions-free electric cruisers which have been especially appreciated by her guests. This passion began about 10 years ago when she gradually started to change her lifestyle by eating a more natural diet. This led her to explore other alternative ways she could make a bigger impact on the environment by being more “green” on a daily basis as part of a mission to do her part to protect the world we live in.  She is always looking for new ways to make City Tours MKE more efficient and friendly to the environment.

Meghan and her husband Brecken enjoy the Milwaukee night life, the great food scene and now, having a little one, are finding that they are exploring Milwaukee in a whole new light.
