The RiverWalk is a great place to spend some time in Milwaukee. It follows a long stretch of the Milwaukee River, passing many cafés and restaurants along the way. You'll see plenty of boats, historic buildings, and cool artwork/sculptures as you go too. Definitely worth checking out when downtown Milwaukee!

We did enjoy walking along the river and there are many good restaurants along the way, but we couldn't get past the ugly appearance of the water. Very brown and dirty looking, quite a bit of trash floating as well.

We took a river cruise and saw a boat that supposedly cleans the river of debris. A good investment would be to purchase more of these boats.

Can kayak along the busy center of the city and then into the port area and out into the Lake.

Walking is a little broken up, having to cross streets. It's not contiguous, and there are some areas under construction requiring detours.

Watch out for wayward seagulls. A hat might be in order.

Not San Antonio Riverwalk but a wonderful area that I enjoyed very much. Crossing some of the streets to get to the other side was a bit challenging sometimes, but there were lots of activities along the river walk with cute little restaurants. Milwaukee was surprisingly an easy town to walk around and enjoy a pleasant afternoon.

This walk has turned into a great historical and interesting adventure. The city of
Milwaukee has done it right. You could also take a night cruse along the rive and inner Lake Michigan area,
