‘Tis the season in Milwaukee:

■  Few cities celebrate the holiday season like Milwaukee and the fun starts this week. On tap are the kickoff extravaganza of the Downtown Holiday Lights Festival Thursday in Pere Marquette Park and the unique Holiday Folk Fair International at the Expo Center of Wisconsin State Fair Park Friday through Sunday.

Other favorites of the season:

■  Travel back to Victorian America by visiting the Pabst Mansion. The elegant mansion provides a glimpse of the world of Captain Frederick Pabst, who led the world’s brewing industry more than a century ago.

■  You can also dine like Captain Pabst at Mader’s, which has been serving the best in German food for 112 years. It’s only natural that the oldest and most German of Milwaukee’s restaurants is a co-sponsor of this week’s Milwaukee Christkindlmarket this Thursday through Sunday at Best Place at the Historic Pabst Brewery.

■  Milwaukee continues to be known as brew city and is home to one of the largest breweries of Miller/Coors. Tours of the historic Miller/Coors are available year-round. The award-winning Sprecher Brewery in Glendale is a leader in the burgeoning craft brewing movement. Stop in for a tour that includes specialty sodas and award-winning root beer for the kids.

■  Great Lakes Distillery also offers tours of the first distillery to open in Milwaukee since the end of Prohibition.

■  Any visit to Milwaukee requires a stop at the Milwaukee Art Museum on the lakefront. Known internationally for the winged addition designed by famed architect Santiago Calatrava, the museum currently hosts a very special exhibition of 500 years of Italian painting. Don’t forget to stop for lunch at the Café Calatrava, which coordinates its menu with each special exhibition.

■  Feeling lucky? Milwaukee’s Potawatomi Hotel & Casino provides a full range of gaming, along with superb dining operations and live entertainment.

■  To really experience Old World Charm and Hospitality at its finest, you need to take a beer history tour at Best Place at the Historic Pabst Brewery in Milwaukee. No reservations are needed. For a small fee, enjoy a historical guided tour that takes you back to 1844 when Best & Company was born to present day. Tour fee includes a 16 oz. Pabst or Schlitz tap or non-alcoholic beverage of your choice.
