What a great place to visit. This is basically a several block area where historic old buildings have been renovated into trendy shopping and restaurants. We really enjoyed our time wandering, shopping and eating. The Fish Market building was especially fun.

We stayed at the Kimpton Journeyman hotel and walked around the area which has a lot of restaurants, spas, theaters & galleries. Very trendy & clean. Surprised that the people in the area were not racially diverse. Still enjoyed our time here despite the lack of diversity.

My wife and I, we like this location a lot. It has a lot of nice pubs, cafes and restaurants in downtown Milwaukee. We go there almost every week and I recommend this location to others as well.

Although our walk through the Third Ward was not extensive, it was clear that many buildings have been carefully restored.

It was a bone chilling day and we decided to walk around the Third Ward. We felt very safe, no matter which street we explored. Our two favorite places were the Public Market and the Restoration Hardware Outlet. If we enjoyed the area on a freezing cold day, I can only imagine how fun it would be on a warm... More
