Milwaukee tour companies are back in business and even if you're a local you're bound to learn something new about your city.

Explore your local breweries with Untapped Tours. The tour stops at Lakefront Brewery, Gathering Place, Black Husky Brewing and Company Brewing for three and a half hours of beer. The tour is offered every Saturday at 1:15 p.m. The cost is $55 per person.

Skywaukee is a weather-proof tour of historic Milwaukee. The one and a half to two-hour tour takes visitors through Milwaukee's skywalk system, never stepping foot outside. 

Milwaukee Food Tours have two tours this weekend. On Sat, March 3 join the Pre-Prohibition Historic Bar Tour at 2 p.m. and if you're feeling hungry afterward hop on the Milwaukee Pizza Bus Tour at 6 p.m. Each tour is three hours long. 

Speaking of food, Foamation, Inc., a.k.a the Cheesehead Factory, is hosting a craft and maker fair called the Crafty Collections: Crafts & Creations, Sweets & Scents. Over a dozen bakers and artists will be at the event selling art and sweets. Guests are also encouraged to stop by the Cheers to the Cheese Minibar. The event takes place Sun, March 4 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
