“The walkway along the Milwaukee River makes for an excellent downtown jaunt”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014

My wife and I strolled along the RiverWalk during a recent day trip to Milwaukee. They did a great job with this. There are many restaurants and bars to stop at along the water. The Milwaukee RiverWalk spans nearly three miles along the Milwaukee River through the heart of the City's Downtown. The Milwaukee RiverWalk is divided into 3 distinct sections: the Beerline RiverWalk to the north, the Downtown RiverWalk in the center, and the Third Ward RiverWalk to the south.

“Peaceful, serene”

This is a beautiful walk that everyone must do at least once if you visit Milwaukee. The views are incredible. This is jsut the start of a lovely stroll from the downtown area to the Lakefront.
