We really enjoyed the market (lots of variety for food and beverage as well as souvenirs and gifts) and Italian fest (great entertainment an food-unfortunately there was rain so we cut our evening short). A great area to walk around and enjoy the architecture.

This district has moved from warehouse district to a neighborhood (on the south edge of Milwaukee's downtown) that has grown very hip with eateries, lofts and condos, shops and lodging

Great area of town to hang with friends. Great restaurants, bars, shops and art. A lot happening all around. Interesting people. Especially fun on warm days/ nights on the river.

We have always enjoyed the Historic Third Ward. With it's many restaurants and bars it's a fantastic destination for a group of friends. We are planning our "War on Milwaukee" in a few weeks and were "scouting" all the places for our "troops" must visit.

Hard to find parking, but this area has a lot of restaurants and shops and beautifully restored buildings. I would put it on my "must-see list" when in Milwaukee.

With many cute boutiques and great restaurants the third ward is worth a visit. Extremely close to summerfest, when the festival closes you can easily walk to the third ward bar scene.

Shopping starts at the Public Market, which is great for finding cute gifts or good food. Then walk to the shops and stop in each one. There is a great variety of shopping to do, and plenty of restaurants to choose from. We went on...More
