Very beautiful area along Lake Michigan shore. Within short distance of museums, yacht club, beach etc. Beautiful in all seasons, went down this past February to see the large ice flows that were crashing in on the waves. Lots of parking too.

Taking the lakefront trail from anywhere on the east side or Riverwest to the lakefront any day is faster/safer and more pleasant than driving and dealing with traffic any day of the year! (you can park your bike for free too) The only way my family goes to the lake front now.

There are lots of great places to bike in Milwaukee, but this is the one I come back to over and over again. Milwaukee’s lakefront is always interesting: people jogging, flying kites, picnicking, roller blading…it’s all here. You can start out around the Milwaukee Art Museum.

A nice trail, anyone who is new to MKE I would recommend at least once. Not something to do in winter.

The highlight of my visit to MILWAUKEE was biking the Lakefront Trail. The views of Lake Michigan are fantastic, truly a wonderful way to make use of the waterfront. There are some beautiful homes along Lake Michigan too. Biking around here is a blast! I'm really impressed with the friendliness of MILWAUKEE and it's outdoor charm.

MKE has one of the best waterfronts in the US --- and you can enjoy it from the Lakefront Trail, whether you're biking, walking or rollerblading. (Segway tours available too) Enjoy the spectacular views of Lake Michigan. Stop at the Harbor House if you want to take a break, and enjoy the view of the Art Museum, or have a... More
