Old World 3rd street is a short walk from the center of the city, very urban setting and one really good old German Restaurant, Maders.

We had an awesome lunch at Mader's, and ran across the street to the Wisconsin Cheese Shop to load up before our flight back to Idaho. I really want to come back and spend more time - the sausage shop, the spice shop, the German influence around. Really enjoyed the atmosphere.

We went for sausage @ Usingers & found Das Boot Oktoberfest in progress. Tons of people around so we kind of joined in for a bit @ Mader's German Restaurant, drinking our beer from old steins. I love this area of Milwaukee.

It is only about 3 blocks and an easy walk from the Riverwalk. A good selection of restaurants and bars along the way.

Great little area featuring famous sausage from Usinger's. Lots of pubs, bars and restaurants to pick from. Most places have great specials, especially during happy hour. Fun spot to hang out in during the day or night!

Nice walk through 3rd Street. Many nice shops, restaurants and people. It makes you forget your troubles and help to reminisce of the good old days. Of course the prices are of today. Very enjoyable.
