Located on Lake Michigan, Bradford Beach is Milwaukee's most popular beach due to its numerous events, beach volleyball tournaments, and music festival. With its frequent 'family day' events, the beach is a great destination for families. The beach has daytime lifeguard supervision during the summer months. There are washrooms and concessions available at the beach as well.
This beach has the Bradford Beach Buoy (B3), which is a collaborative project between the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee and the City of Milwaukee Health Department. The buoy monitors water quality and weather conditions off shore from Bradford Beach in near real time. Check out the buoy data here: http://www.bradfordbuoy.com/.
