this is a nice paved trail that is wide enough for the roller bladers, the bikers, the joggers, and the casual walkers to share. It was a beautiful day and I loved watched the sailboats on the lake as well as a variety of birds on the water. There was a bench available every few feet it seemed, which was... More

Nice walking/bike path durning the daytime. If you go out there at night be aware of your surroundings. If you are with a group at night will not be a problem.

The Milwaukee Lakefront Trail used to be called the Milwaukee 76 Trail to honor the bicentennial, but many of the trails that run through the city are now called the Oak Leaf Trail. There's this one that runs along the lake; another runs along the river, and still others through some of the city parks. My wife and I walked... More

Good place to enjoy some fresh air and take a walk. This is also a great place to take pictures. It offers you plenty of options - greens, trees, water, nice buildings and beautiful skies. It pretty much has everything you would expect from a lakefront trail.

Was in Milwaukee for a couple days on a boys weekend with immediate family for brewery tours and a Cubs game. We had some time one day while we were there and wandered around near the hotel and ended up here. Just wandering around this is pretty. Saw several boats of different types, including I believe a clipper (sorry, not... More

I love this trail and me and my dog walk it nearly every day. But there were two sexual assaults last Tuesday afternoon so we won't go back for a while and I'll try to remember to take my phone to call 911 as my dog would only lick the guy. They caught him but I'm still a bit freaked... More

We had our first real look at the lakefront during our cruise. The boat took us along the river and on to Lake Michigan. We knew we wanted to walk along the lakefront. So, on our second trip to the downtown area, we took in the lakefront. We parked at Veterans Park (free parking available). We enjoyed a nice walk... More

While at the Cubanitas Cuban Festival, it got cold. The street was shaded by the buildings so I got a bit cold and in search of some sun I ended up walking towards the beautiful "white wings" I could see from far... it was a Saturday afternoon and I once again, was a "solo" venturer... I felt safe... the views... More

When I got off the interstate I pulled onto N. Lincoln Memorial Drive. I noticed there were parking spaces along the road here, so I parked the van and began my walk. What a great trail, very wide and laid out well, so there is enough room to walk your family here and not get in the way of a... More
