Pretty dead in late May 2014. Close enough to walk if your in Downtown Milwaukee but lots of restaurants and the "Bronze Fonz" is located here.

On our first visit to Wisconsin, we were headed up-state to our destination. On a whim, we decided to stop at Milwaukee to check it out. We did research and took note of a "river walk" in downtown so we headed there as we arrived. After parking we were delighted to find the Morning Glory Fine Crafts Fair in full... More

We have walked the river walks in San Antonio, Bricktown, and Chicago. This is also one of the tops, well kept up, clean, good restaurants and draw bridges, this is an easy walk to go up and down both sides.

Its worth your time. If you like to walk and want to catch a different view of downtown Milwaukee, then i would highly recommend it. I recommend a late night walk. Its nice and quite and very romantic. Its a nice place to take your out of town friends.

The RiverWalk is split between the east and west sides of the Milwaukee River. Any time of day or night is a great time to watch boats sailing down the river (with raised drawbridges as a plus). Great place to watch people, hang with friends or family, take a date, or great views to enjoy and take photos. Easy access... More

Was a very nice outing for the family as we walked and looked at all the sculptures, boats and attractions in Downtown. Milwaukee should be proud that they have this gem in their city.

It was so nice - in the middle of the city you have the water, the boats and all the little restaurants that you could have everything from a snack to dinner while enjoying the atmosphere.
