I took a walk around downtown while visiting for the Milwaukee Irish Festival. Milwaukee is special in that it has maintained/restored *lots* of old buildings. Lots of them with interesting architecture and a lot of character. City Hall is a huge old brick masterpiece. Just...More

We were lucky enough to see a window advertisement for a historic walking tour of downtown Milwaukee and the RiverWalk. This was one of many interesting sites along the way!

Milwaukee is very walkable, as least the city center. You cannot mistake the city hall for anything but must visit building. Exterior classic Central European architecture from the 19th century. The interior contains a vast atrium with all the offices surrounding it all the way...More
