Definitely put this on your to-do-while-Milwaukee list!

Fun restaurants, great big kids swing park, scenic walkway over the river terminating at a nice park and lots of local color. A must see part of the city.

Another one of those streets littered with little dives and shops to run in and out of. It's fun to see things but once is enough for me. Good experience. If you want a good thin crust pizza, i will recommend hands down zaffiro pizza. They have been around since 1954.

Was there in the late 1960s. The storefronts have changed but the people still have the same look today as back then (the grandchildren of beatniks)

The street fest reminded me of summertime on Bourbon St. in New Orleans! What a great place to people watch, see some bands, have a few beers, and soak up the sun.

This is a fun street in Milwaukee. Be sure to stop in at the Italian bakery and/or the Italian market. There are hip bars and restaurants everywhere.

I'm a "seasoned senior" but I have NEVER fell "out of love" with Brady Street!! I spent the best part of my youth growing up on Arlington and Brady Streets. Every year I return with my sister, daughter, and introduced the grandkids to the experience! Has the flavor of Haight Ashbury, Old Italian, Polish and German. Neat shops, cafes, etc.... More

A little piece of hippiedom, italian charm, and unique Milwaukee flavor all rolled into a gritty half-mile street. Full of pubs, restaurants, cafes and specialty shops, this street is the original "place to be."

Brady Street is a lot of fun to walk, stop at a bar, look in a shop, have a bite to eat. Park the motorcycle and walk. In the summer lots of seating outside. During festivals lots of fun to stop in this area.

Grew up on Brady Street in the 60s and 70s. It's still a cultural center of Milwaukee. Don't miss Peter Sciortino's Bakery. Smells just like it did 40 years ago. A must taste is Glorioso's. It is real Italian.

Lots of great shops including an Italian bakery (Peter Sciortino's) and full Italian grocery (Gloriosos); several interesting restaurants and bars. Parking is decent on the street or off a block or 2. Take Water Street north out of downtown and curves into Brady Street.
