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.

Brady street is made up of an old Polish and Italian neighborhood. With a Polish church and a Italian church near by. You have a variety of Italian stores and restaurants to visit. You also have many bars and other fine dinning along Brady Street. Brady street reminds me of the the old days of the hippie movement. It is... More

This is classic river west and a fun experience. I love the diverse group of people, local dives, and that many of the businesses are independently owned. Brady street days is always a blast. Mostly recommended in the warm summer months when there is a montage of people. Scorpions bakery for Classic Italian desserts or hot ham and rolls on... More

A pleasant walk from the marina and beach. A bohemian area with Italian, Greek, Mexican and Middle Eastern restaurants. Also peppered with cafes and tiny apparel shops.

If you want to experience a whole lot of foodie bang for your buck, spend a day here! While not huge, there is a huge variety of shops, restaurants, and historic buildings all within a three block radius! (Good thing if you enjoy too many great microbrews!)

It was a nice walk, but I guess having been to other places like Chicago, San Francisco & NY I shouldn't have had my expectations so high. I'm sure during a festival it's great.

This is a fascinating part of Milwaukee where you will see cute cafes, upscale restaurants, tattoo parlors, and lots of CULTURE. Always an interesting place to stroll. Dogs are extremely welcome. Doggie water is outside of many of the shops. Fun to do some window shopping here too.
