This river walk has a lot to offer- food, art, drink, free wifi in some spots, and the view of the Milwaukee river. It is well marked with interpretive signs that add interesting facts about the places you're seeing as well as maps in the downtown section. It runs on both sides of the river, so you can do a circuit and it can be different in each direction. Look down at the pavement and you might see bronze tiles with designs done by students. Local artists are featured in the sculptures, and you can get free brochures available on the walk, called RiverSculpture! 2012. After a fresh snow, expect to see only animal tracks on the river and maybe some waterfowl. Great exercise with nice views! Just be aware that most of the river walk is below streets and has stairs so it's not totally stroller friendly. They have added ramps in many places but it still doesn't have them at all streets.
