While reading up on things to do in Milwaukee, I came across an odd and quirky site that sounded like the perfect place for a jump.
I first heard about the Ladybug Building on Roadside America, a site that’s a “caramel- coated- nutbag full of odd and hilarious travel destinations- over 10,000 in the US and Canada…”
During lunch at Zaffiro’s on Day 1 of our trip we were told by Theresa & Wade of Milwaukee Food Tours that the Ladybug Building wasn’t worth a stop. However, they didn’t know that the purpose of a visit would be a quick visit for some jumping photos.
We discussed more of the things we planned to do with Theresa & Wade during our meal and then parted ways. Our next stop would be the Milwaukee Public Market.
The market was under 10 minutes from our lunch spot but I had to pull over for an impromptu stop. Kim wasn’t paying attention and wondered why I was slowing down. It wasn’t like my phone’s navigation told me to stop.
I pointed to the building on the left and Kim then saw the ladybugs on the side of the building.
Our impromptu photo shoot took less than 5 minutes and was worth a stop since it was along our way. I’d agree with Theresa & Wade that the building wasn’t worth going out of your way to see unless you had something specific in mind to do!
The Ladybug Building is located at 618 N.Water Street in Milwaukee, WI.
