Milwaukee's winter may be cold, but there's a bit of the city that's at tropical temperatures. Visit the Tropical Dome at Mitchell Park Horticultural Conservancy and see 1,200 species of plants that live in the balmy air there. (And if it's not hot enough, there's a Desert Dome too.) They're open between 9am and 5pm.
