Milwaukee Brewers Baseball
This opportunity amazes us!
This summer the Brewer’s organization offers Kids & Senior Citizen’s Discounts for most weekday daytime games. You can purchase reserved seat tickets at HALF PRICE for kids ages 3 to 14 and seniors 60 and over. Each child 3 years of age and older must have their own ticket. Chicago Cubs games and holidays are excluded. Uecker tickets are also excluded.
Of course, the cost of a ticket to a Brewer game varies widely, depending on where you want to sit. However there are four ticket options that, at half price, cost $14.00 or less. They are:
- Field Bleachers $14.00 (this is 1/2 price)
- Loge Bleachers $14.00 (this is 1/2 price)
- Terrace Reserved $8.00 (this is 1/2 price)
- Terrace Box $11.50 (this is 1/2 price)
Check a map of Miller Park to see where these seats are located. It’s available on the web site below. Parking is $10.00.
You can keep the cost down even more by taking sack lunches or snacks into the stadium, including beverages. Only clear soft-sided containers are permitted; glass containers will not be allowed.

When it's really hot outside, what could be better than sliding around on a big chunk of ice? Greater Milwaukee offers three indoor ice arenas, and all three usually schedule public skate times during the week. It's best to call for specifics, since they also perform rink maintenance during the summer. Group rates may be available. Call the numbers below for skate times, rental availability and fees.

Whatever you call it, "mini-golf," "goofy golf," "putt-putt golf," or "miniature golf," it's still a fun game. It's also a good, reasonably priced way to spend an hour or so outside in a structured activity.
Rather than try to list all of the miniature golf courses in the area, we suggest you turn to the Yellow Pages. Under the heading "Golf Courses-Miniature" you’ll find many different places to play. Most of them offer other kid-oriented amusements, too, such as batting cages and games.
What could be more "Milwaukee" than bowling? Harleys for sure, beer and brats maybe, but bowling has got to be on the short list.
Bowling centers usually stock lightweight balls for kids; ask at the counter where you rent shoes. With advance notice they might even get out the bumpers, long air-filled tubes that lie in the gutters and prevent gutter balls.
The Yellow Pages or the Internet are great ways to find the most family-oriented bowling center near you. Also, web sites like www.OnMilwaukee.com have listings or guides to help groups choose the location best suited to their needs.
