LET'S MAKE THIS SIMPLE.
In 2013, Calie Herbst, a former Spanish teacher with three little ones, was frustrated with how much time she spent searching way too many websites to find fun events & activities for families. So she founded Milwaukee With Kids (formerly MiltownMoms). Her goal was to find the best this city has to offer families and share it with other parents. In one place.
Today, Calie and her team take the work out of finding fun for kids & families around Milwaukee. They connect active parents and caregivers to the city’s best kid-friendly businesses, activities and events every day via:
A daily calendar of events organized by region
A Weekend Guide of top weekend events
A comprehensive database of family-friendly spots
A weekly eNewsletter & popular social media channels
Annual Summer Camp and Birthday Guides
Partnerships with nearly 100 local businesses and organizations that share our passion for making Milwaukee a great (and fun) place to raise a family
Milwaukee With Kids is powered by a team striving to find that sweet spot of meaningful BALANCE across family, work and self. We not only encourage this, it's why we exist.
We believe in creating FUN and lasting memories with our own families and love to share ideas and encourage others to engage with everything our city has to offer. We're INTENTIONAL and thoughtful with our content and partnerships. We want our readers to love what they see, and our partners to get the results they seek. We work with INTEGRITY, exercising honesty with our incredible partners, our super-engaged Milwaukee With Kids community and one another. We keep our STANDARDS high, and we strive to produce useful, great content for you on the daily. Being RESOURCEFUL is our jam. We're super nimble, multi-talented and every person here takes ownership of their work as if it's their baby.
Because this business, in a sense, is our baby. And it's health allows us to use our minds, spend time with our family and take part in a community we love.
