It's probably about a mile from Wisconsin Av, depending on your starting point. So, if you can easily walk a mile then it should be an easy walk. Of course if you are coming in winter and it's bitter cold or snowing heavily it's not that easy for anyone to walk a mile.

Easy if you do it Wisconsin style.

Walk to Old World Third Street. Stop at Buck Bradleys - longest bar East of Mississippi River (or is it West of?), or the WI Cheese Mart. Have a beer. After that break, walk down to the Schlitz Brewery complex, and stop in Libiamo for a beer. This is the old Brown Bottle Pub, and it's still a neat space in a grand old complex. After that break Lakefront is a hop skip and a jump away. After Lakefront, take the pedestrian bridge over the river and stop in Trocadero for a bloody mary. Then pub hop back down Water Street to WI, and back to your hotel.

The nice walk will burn off the beer calories ;-)

It is very walkable in the good weather, however it is close to 2 miles. I do it all the time. If you are healthy and like to walk it is a great walk. And yes safe.

I recommend walking the river walk, there are many places to stop if you want to stop along the way.

Or take the river walk and cut east to Water Street bars, or west to old world 3rd, then back to the river and walk north .

What time of the year are you going.

Sadly, the Riverwalk does not connect from downtown all the way to Lakefront Brewery. Yet ;-)

The river walk goes all the way except for one block of it.

It goes all the way to Pleasant St. then you just cut over one block to the west to Commerce and take it north to the brewery. The Brewery is right on the river it has a great feel to it.

If you enjoying walking in new places it is A very nice walk.

There are many ways to get there walking, I just happen to think along the river out of traffic is rather nice.

but it is closer to 2 miles.

Enjoy the tour and try the beer.
