Lived in this area 33 years ago, used to be a warehouse slum, absolutely amazing how well it's cleaned up and still retained it's charm. Finding the food market was wonderful. The stores we found a bit pricey.

I really enjoyed this part of Milwaukee. I enjoy architecture, seeing the old and the new buildings. There's a lot of cute cafes and cool stores to browse in. Even walking in the sunset and after dark, I still felt safe in the quiet streets.

Downtown Milwaukee is really cool, fun and safe, but I really love the third ward. Everything is walkable, so many shops like the Milwaukee Home Store, Milwaukee Public Market and tons of bars and restaurants.

I would go to the art museum and eat there. Pretty lake views even if art isn't your thing. And there are a couple of places to eat there that have good quality food.
