Public Market, restaurants, theatre, shopping, architecture, hustle and bustle. It's got it all. It's never a bad time visiting the Third Ward, no matter what you are there for.

If you like to be active. If you like food. If you like walking. If you enjoy culture, history, a good time and having outdoor options - then head to the Historic Third Ward.

The trolley bus at $1 was the best value in town. There were plenty of shops, lounges, cheese stores, restaurants, etc., and the area had a very historic and authentic feel.

renovated warehouse district seems to have become the place to be in Milwaukee and reminds me of the Strand part of Galveston - well-done retrofits to sturdy old-time buildings, etc - except with much more to offer entertainment-wise and live-work-wise. due to offerings in this area, we ended up here on a daily basis during our week-long stay here.

My wife and I tend towards the older downtown parts of the cities we visit, and the Historic Third Ward of Milwaukee did not disappoint. There's a variety of small boutique shops as well as the usual large up-scale department stores, but best of all there are many eateries to choose from - Kasana (tapas) was our choice, and we...

The Third Ward is so historic and there is so much to see and do! During the day you can wander safely for hours! It is a must see in Milwaukee.

Milwaukee's Third Ward is a well preserved/restored historic district featuring a variety of shops, bars, and eateries. My wife and I recently visited there on a Monday afternoon en route to Chicago and enjoyed walking around the neighbourhood taking in the sights.

We walked to the 3rd ward and it is very nice. Trendy area, like a Miniature Buck-town in Chicago. It really only covers a few blocks though. If you are not eating there you will be in and out with-in an hour or two. Nice visit and enjoyed our meal.
