I biked for a couple of hours around the Third Ward and it was really worth it. There are numerous attractions and a lot of shops and restaurants to interfere with your sight. The markets are affordable and good quality is offered.

Stopped in this area for lunch. Super walkable and fun to see the different stores and restaurants in the area. The large market warehouse has tons of food and gift options.

This part of Milwaukee just keeps getting better. Over the past decade, it has been transformed into this hip place where you can shop, dine, drink, and take food or photography tours. The park has some great outdoor music and the Public Market is the cornerstone for foodies. Now there will be hotels here too. I love this part of... More

This interesting area of Milwaukee is worth a visit if you have the time. The area is a good mix of old and new architecture. Save your gas and park under the highway next to Milwaukee Public Market. Just head south down Water Street and taken in the views and do a little window shopping. Turn down Erie then onto... More

Only went to have lunch so we didn't get to really look around. The few places we peeked into seemed VERY expensive but the area was pretty cool!

The Third Ward Historic District has a string of restaurants and and shops- nothing exceptional to write home about. But it's a nice place to have brunch or spend a couple of hours while in Milwaukee. We loved the market. Bought some interesting olive oils.

First time to Milwaukee, visiting my son who now lives there. He took us to several restaurants in the Third Ward. Area seems to be a hip, trendy place with lots of activity. Can park for free on the streets after 6 pm and on weekends. Close to several museums. Worth a look.

Such a cute little area to walk around. The people are super kind and the shops are adorable. You don't have to walk far to find a good place to eat. Very fun

Have not been in this area in Milwaukee for a very long time. We could not believe how everything has been brought back to life. Filled with shops, restaurants and bars. Will make a trip to Milwaukee just to spend time in this area.
