This is very interesting, you can enjoy the weather and walk across the city very enjoyable during spring and summer period. Even to go for a run is something refreshing. I recommend it as a tourist

I love taking a stroll up and down the riverwalk every time I visit Milwaukee. Plenty of cool downtown buildings to see, The Bronze Fonz, and plenty of places to sit and relax and watch the boats.
