Milwaukee is full of places begging to get on your Instagram. Check out these photo-worthy spots throughout the Cream City.

Black Cat Alley

Stroll among Black Cat Alley's outdoor, large-scale murals located between Kenilworth Place and Ivanhoe Place. When you need a pick-me-up, head to Colectivo Coffee nearby.

Milwaukee Art Museum

Glass ceilings soar 90 feet above visitors to the postmodern Quadracci Pavilion, creating an Instagram-perfect backdrop.

Pfister Hotel

The 1893 Romanesque Revival hotel boasts a gold-accented interior with antique furniture and elaborate chandeliers.

Sobelman's Pub and Grill

Here, your bloody mary can double as a meal. Snap that pic before digging in.

Koi Fish

These orange and white fish can be found swimming all over the city, so keep an eye out.

Brewhouse Inn and Suites

Copper brew kettles anchor the lobby in the refurbished Pabst Brewery Complex; vintage touches throughout the hotel allow for plenty of photo ops.

View MKE

The view is spectacular whether you look up at dozens of hanging lights or out over the city. Nibble from a menu of seasonal dishes made with local ingredients.

Harley Davidson Museum

Explore hands-on exhibits, nine Harleys to "ride" and other attractions on the 20-acre campus.

Lakefront Brewery

Drink, dine, tour and catch a photo by a giant mug of beer at this top-notch Milwaukee brewery.

Iron Horse Hotel

Once a warehouse, the space now includes 100 sophisticated loft-style guest rooms and the bar Branded, with vintage decor but a modern feel.

Kickapoo Coffee

This coffee shop is more than just a cute place to snap a picture. It's also focused on fair compensation for their coffee farmers, and 97 percent of the coffee sold is organic.

The Outsider Rooftop Bar

Six outdoor and indoor areas cover 5,000 square feet, with retractable glass walls to ensure it's patio season all year long.

North Point Lighthouse

Visit this picturesque lighthouse and take a look around the museum to get a feel for the history that surrounds North Point.

Milwaukee Public Market

The red neon sign out front is perfect for a quick photo, but leave plenty of time to explore among the fresh food vendors inside.

Mitchell Park Domes

Walk among cacti and palm trees to get your fill of nature. It doesn't hurt to take some pretty pictures, either.
