Unless you've been to Milwaukee's General Mitchell airport, then maybe you haven't. Next to the custard shop (mmmm. . . custard. . . ) sits Renaissance Books. This lovely shop is filled with a large selection of soft well-loved novels, books on aviation, travel, history, and much more. What a WONDERFUL way to pass time. I'd be doing this even if I wasn't at an airport.
Renaissance started as a larger outpost in downtown Milwaukee in the 1960s. The downtown location has since closed and, lucky for us travelers, the airport location still runs. So if you had certain thoughts about Milwaukee that were negative or based on stereotypes. . . hopefully this might change your mind. Just a little, perhaps?
The New York Times is hip to it too.
