“Charming vibe and great shops!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013

Started with the market and ended with the Goodwill "boutique" which couldn't have been more charming! Perfect place to spend the afternoon and to get the flavor of Milwaukee!!! Short walk from the center of town - I wouldn't miss this!

“A blast of a block party right on the river!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2013

Go to the Old German Beer Hall if you want great beer and a giant pretzel, but the best eats are the vendors outside the pubs that set up around 10-11 p.m. I ate the BEST Italian Sausage I've ever had for 5 bucks and my wife thoroughly enjoyed a Chicken Teryaki Sausage with some fixins on it for the same price. We talked with the vendors about the history of Mader's Restaurant and Usingers Sausage House and it was like making an instant friend. There is a nice mix of ages, music styles, etc on the block and we felt safe. It was so much fun, we can't wait to go back.

“Cute and Historic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

Great for window shopping and trying new local food. Watch out, however - the food is over priced at most places and parking is hard to come by. Nevertheless, it's my favorite "hood" in Miwaukee. Love the public market!
