A nice walk around an updated city. A lot of the restaurants are spread out, and you have to cross many city streets, but there are interesting sculptures and places to sit along the walk.

A great place to slow down and unwind as you walk along the river and enjoy the sights and sounds of the area. Very well done.

Nice spot to walk with a friend. Not sure how safe it would be as the sun goes down. But that could be said for any major city.

nice walk along the river. Milwaukee reminds me of a "little Chicago" not as large, not as busy but very beautiful with old buildings from the early 1900

I would this is the best place in Milwaukee for couple for an long evening walk. You can see all the crowd and buildings along side the river. The breeze is always good and always a pleasant weather.

This is my go to spot when visiting my son and his family. I've didn't many hours pushing a stroller on this great walkway whine enjoying the beauty of the area and great architecture.

Granted, the MKE Riverwalk represents a significant effort to cleanup the river area and draw people into the city for casual recreation. Kudos for that. However, this is not really a scenic walk and it's not going to draw me into the city. I would...More

Hi Justin, I am sorry, but, I am in Mexico! If you are staying at a hotel in downtown Milwaukee I am sure the concierge will be able to help you. The river walk itself is nice depending on the weather. The public market is... More
