Standing on the shore of gorgeous Lake Michigan, North Point Lighthouse is a shining beacon of Milwaukee’s history and makes for some top-notch pictures. The lighthouse stands 107 feet (32.6 meters) above the lake and was once the tallest lighthouse on any of the Great Lakes. The building itself has been in the process of being renovated for most of the 2000s, and it now is in near-perfect condition.

Architecture often reflects a city’s culture, and that is certainly true with 100 East Wisconsin (a.k.a. Faison Building). Originally built on the site of the old Pabst Building, 100 East exhibits classic German architecture and stands as the third-tallest building in Wisconsin. The Pabst name is ironclad in Milwaukee, so architects remained true to the original building by giving 100 East a rectangular footprint and similar crown along the roof.
