In 2013, Calie Herbst, a former 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. 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
