Bradford Beach: View from the Beach House

Blue Wave CertificationWisconsin's Top Urban Beach

It's true what they say: It is cooler by the lake, and in Milwaukee, there's no where better to cool off than Bradford Beach. In 2009, Bradford Beach became one of Wisconsin's first beaches to receive Blue Wave Certification from the nonprofit Clean Beaches Council of Washington, D.C. Since then, the beach has undergone a rebirth as a center of summer fun.
