We spent part of each day here mainly for the Market and the restaurants in the area. We enjoyed having coffee in the morning and sitting at a table on the side walk people watching again!

The Third Ward is a charming area immediately south of downtown Milwaukee. The area is a classic example of urban gentrification. Largely dominated by warehouses and produce wholesalers during the 20th century, the Third Ward is now a hub of popular restaurants and nightspots, live theater, art galleries, chic shops, and upscale lofts and apartments. The Milwaukee Riverwalk passes by... More

The area has a mix of restaurants while also having re-designs of the some buildings being done seemingly with the goals of bringing more people to downtown. The variety of restaurants, stores and the ambiance makes this a worthwhile trip. Even amidst the weekend peak times it did not come across as over-populated. A visit to this area is definitely...

This "market" has several restaurants and shops inside it. Great place to have a selection of food and food types. Nice ambiance. Great seating indoors and upstairs which is accessible by elevator. This is good since I'm physically challenged.

My daughter and I visited the Third Ward and dined in the PUBLIC MARKET (if you were ever in Philly, it is a small version of the Reading Terminal Market). An area that has been rehabbed and is a "trendy and chic" spot. Make sure to eat lunch or dinner...loads of great locations, plenty of bars and very active!

We only had a short time to spend in this charming area and walked as much as we could stopping in interesting shops and admiring the restoration. Fabulous fish tacos at the Public Market (St. Paul fish company) and those divine (MN) Rachel potato chips!
