A very scenic experience lined with Pere Marquette Park, Arts Center and various restaurants. All in the heart of downtown.

We didn't even know the River Walk was there but what a cool surprise when we came across it. It was beautiful.

Path is very clean and clear of garbage and obstacles. Many restaurants and bars throughout the walk. Fun to take a picture with the bronze fronz.

This walk by this little river is not to be missed. On a warm summer's night it is about as America as you can get. Goo eateries abound, a nice place to gain weight after an hour's walk. Then back to the hotel for a well deserved slumber.

Having visited San Antonio's Riverwalk, I believe that Milwaukee's could use more attractions to substantiate the hype around it. Other than several landmarks and the statue of the Bronze Fonz, there is little to do along the Riverwalk. Perhaps because I went in October and didn't get to experience it during the Spring or Summer, it would do the city... More

This is the perfect spot to stroll and see downtown Milwaukee at its best. In the summer there are plenty of great outdoor eating options along the river for great al fresco dining, then catch a boat tour out onto Lake Michigan.

Milwaukee's RiverWalk is lovely! But not enough people use it. Not that I have ever felt unsafe - but it can be lonely late at night. Walk from the Third Ward through Downtown to Pere Marquette Park and Old World Third Street. You can even walk down to Lakefront Brewery if you are up to it!

Terrific buildings, peaceful river strolling, but too much up and down at each cross street. Lots of places to stop rest observe and snack.
