Great bars, restaurants, shops... great to walk around and see what the area has to offer. Good food and drinks at The Wicked Hop.

Much thought and architectural ideas have been applied, new restaurants opened yet still this area is IMO just at its beginning stage. We were there over the past weekend and it was rather empty for a Saturday night. I am sure it will have a great future ahead and it is worth a visit.

We enjoyed all of the old buildings as we drove thru the Third Ward. We plan on going back to walk the area.

The 3rd Ward is definately an up and coming go to spot. The shops are still sparse but they are slowly coming in. The outdoor market on Saturday mornings at the Milwaukee Public Market is just wonderful. A lot of local vendors with wonderful wares.

We stumbled upon this historic district and are glad we did, but I wouldn't go out of my way to see it. If you are headed to the Frank Lloyd Wright home on Bradham, it's around there. We like to see as much as possible when we tour cities, so we thought it was worth it.

This is my second visit to the Third Ward. I really enjoyed this area because it has a lot of local businesses which I always support. The Public Market is a great place to visit. That's where you can find a lot of Wisconsin food items at the market. Also, the ping-pong place is a fun place to visit. You... More

We loved the River Walk and Public Market. A visit to the "Bronze Fonz" is a must. There is so much to do in this area. Great restaraunts and views.

My husband and I went to the Public Market on July 14, 2014 and were pleasantly surprised. There are several venues to choose from for food, including sausage and cheese, a candy shop, ice cream and wine. I would recommend to anyone stopping in Milwaukee.
