It was nice and clean but had a few sketchy areas where some homeless or people looking to bum money were hanging out. But for the most part a nice walk. I have been to a lot worse and dirty. Like anywhere else be aware...More

This city is full of water views. The Riverwalk was a way to enjoy the water and to get my picture with The Fonz!

The city has done a fantastic job with getting this area established. There was construction going on, so I think that's a good thing as there's more to come. Go check out the Fonz bronze!

There was construction going on and we couldn't go too far. It was ok for us, not the nicest day. We saw the Bronze Fonz and left. Parking wasn't the easiest there or we just had bad luck that day.

Milwaukee has done a great job with the river walk. It is beautiful and well used. It is a whole different view of the city. There is also a ton of restaurants to stop and enjoy.

The river walk goes through the downtown area. There are nice spots to relax, look at the sights and/ or boats. You can rent pontoons there which would have been our choice if the weather had been warmer.

Nice walk near the river, with many parks and places for sightseeing. Good walk alone, with friends or family.

Yes. As it runs thru the City of Milwaukee, you may find free street parking here and there. And there is metered parking that is often free on weekends.

If you can get to this Historic Third Ward, there are plenty of restaurant options in the area. Water Buffalo comes to mind. The Wicked Hop is fun too. Check out the public market for something to do. Walking the river... More
