Looking for Christmas Things to Do in Milwaukee?

Get into the festive spirit with our fabulous MKE Christmas Lights Tour!

Price: $68/person, kids 17 and under $28, kids 5 and under $10

The festive holidays are a special time in Milwaukee and there’s no better way to soak up the atmosphere than a cheerful tour through the city in the company of friends, colleagues, or loved ones.

We pick you up from a venue in Milwaukee’s Brewery District, where you’ll be sure to enjoy the cozy, warm glow of Christmas lights.

Our guide will welcome you with 3D glasses to transform your experience into something truly unique. We will then board one of our cruisers (or buses for larger groups) and head out into the night. Then, we’ll turn up the Christmas music and start our tour of MKE Christmas lights!

Christmas Lights Past, Present, and Future

Expect an interactive evening of caroling and colorful photo ops (should you feel inclined, of course). We’ll hop on and off the cruiser as we reach points of interest, taking in some of the most popular Christmas lights Milwaukee has to offer.

These include Catalano Square, Zeidler Park, Pere Marquette Park, Cathedral Square, and the Hoan Bridge – expect a whole lot of magical, twinkly lights, and good cheer!

But we can never forget what Milwaukee is known best for – beer! Together, we’ll take a step back in time as we drive through the former Pabst Brewery complex to revisit chapters from Milwaukee’s past and rich holiday traditions. If you’re particularly interested in learning Milwaukee’s history, check out our popular Iconic Milwaukee Tour.

Our final stop will be at Nicole’s Third Ward Social. This makes for the perfect spot to enjoy a little Milwaukee Christmas “cheer” and a dessert before we end this enchanting evening of seasonal fun.

Whether you are a local or visiting from out of town, our Milwaukee Christmas light tour is sure to become a new tradition for you, your family, and your friends.

City Tours MKE makes it easy for you to gather together to enjoy the warmth and cheer of the holiday season in Milwaukee. So, if you were looking for Christmas things to do in Milwaukee, look no further – we have you covered!

If you have any questions about this tour, please get in touch – we’d love to hear from you.

Please note: While we try to avoid splitting folks up between cars, occasionally, this is necessary based on group tour numbers. If you absolutely do not want to risk going into different vehicles, please consider booking a private tour instead. Cars travel together during a tour. It’s only during transport between stops that you would be split. Each car seats 5 passengers, so any groups larger than 5 will need to separate.

Why Take a Tour with City Tours MKE?

Sustainable: We are eco-focused and use low-speed electric vehicles
